About Me

"I'm as cheesy as a roller rink" and still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

Work, published and forthcoming, appears in >Kill Author, Metazen, PANK, Referential Magazine, The Legendary, The Shine Journal, FlashFire500, Emerald Tales, PicFic & Soundzine. A prose piece about my grandmother will be published this year in the From the Porch Swing anthology and my PicFic pieces will be in their anthology published by Folded Word.

Why do you write?

The cast of characters pillow fighting in my head.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Austen, Pyncho, Eco, Irving, Poe & Roach (Mary)

Johnsienoel's Wall

Christian Bell – Jul 08, 2010

Thank you for reading and commenting on my “Alice in Wonderland Syndrome” story!

Myra King – May 28, 2010

So pleased you loved Red Fox Rampant and that your daughter did too! :-)

Bill Yarrow – May 27, 2010

Glad you liked "Dis-Ease." Thanks for commenting on it.

Myra King – May 26, 2010

Thanks J, it was a riot writing Purple Patch. I had no idea what was going to happen myself. GM dogs not a good thing.

eamon byrne – May 25, 2010

I empathise with your empathy with birds and pity their problems with buildings. For evidence of this, see the last sentence in my piece 'the phallicism of skyscrapers'.

Michelle Elvy – May 25, 2010

Hi Johnsienoel! Thanks for reading Elephant, and your wonderful comments. Thanks for liking the raw. Raw is what we need sometimes, I guess. So good to meet you here!

Sara – May 25, 2010

thanks so much for your kind note on my short. my computer has been acting out for 24 hours but as soon as she's back to her usual self i look forward to catching up on your work.

Jane Hammons – May 21, 2010

Thanks Johnsienoel, for your comments on Beatnik Blonde. I had actually submitted it to Pedestal in some version. Seemed like a good place for it . . . oh well

Myra King – May 20, 2010

Thank you for your kind comments on my poem, From the Kitchen Of my Childhood. : -)

Meg Pokrass – Apr 16, 2010

yabba yabba yabba yAWP1 Thank you!

Walter Bjorkman – Apr 09, 2010

Thanks for stopping by my wall, Johnsienoel. Yes, it does seem like they listen. When I first went into these woods, they of course scattered like roaches when the lights turned on (except the geese, they rarely give ground). Now, its almost as if they are offended if I dont call hello or give a wave. And that's just over a month's time. For all of our scatterings in life as artists, familiarity DOES breed comfort, which is not a bad thing.

Meg Pokrass – Mar 16, 2010

thank you so so much for your lovely words about my parrot story!

Sam Rasnake – Feb 01, 2010

The direct language is one feature in the story. And that works. I like the way the dialogue moves in the piece. Good form. And especially like the parenthetical asides. The layers are there. It's an impacting read. I like it, Jennifer - and obviously Legendary did.

Darryl Price – Jan 29, 2010

Yes I agree: you certainly do deserve to be cherished and adored with unconditional love.Good luck with that.From what I understand the rest of the universe wants the same things from you. Yipes! So I'll start with adoring you.

Julie Innis – Jan 26, 2010

Hey! M&P is reading for their next issue, I'm pretty sure - send them something asap.

Susan Tepper – Jan 26, 2010

So glad you joined Cervena Barva Press group and look forward to reading lots of your work!

Julie Innis – Jan 26, 2010

Sara – Jan 24, 2010

your generous words on "spring" made my day. i can't even tell you (i'm telling you) how nice that is to hear.

i'm been really enjoying your poems, the russian lumberjack has great language -- and i look forward to reading more!

Sara – Jan 22, 2010
