The individuals listed below absolutely slay at what they do.  Take a moment and make a list of adjectives that are usually reserved for individuals who have a bunch of accolades: boss, delicious, fabulous, magical.  They cover the spectrum of skills including: art, coaching, editing, formatting, inspiring, promoting, proofreading, and riding and dying, which makes our creations SICK, all caps.   The Jeanie and Jayha are feeling the fantasy.  

Sure, we may have used all manner of tactics to “convince” them to help us.  Loosely translated, that means we hounded them until they finally gave in.  And now they have a seat at the head table at any JandJ shindig.  Without further ado, let us introduce you.  


BARBIE POMALES: PR and Promoter Extraordinaire who makes The Jeanie and Jayha do stuff, like stop effing around and get off of our cans and write.  If you want a personal drill sergeant…grin, she can be reached at:

CONSULTS BY SONYA, LLC: In addition to being a consultant, Sonya is our acquisitions editor, editor-in-chief, ride-or-die sister, and prolific scrapbooker who will delete your text if you send a long list of items and fail to utilize the oxford comma.

JIM & ZETTA: Formatting rock star duo that consists of Jim, our favorite Scotsman who taught us about the sport of curling and who keeps promising to rock a kilt for us, and Zetta, proud Texan and editor who embraces the oxford comma.   Website:   Email for Jim (all things publishing):; Email for Zetta (editing):

JULIENNE: Our traveling massage therapist who supplied us with daily doses of inspiration, spoiled all of the puppies, and saved each of us at one time or another with the infamous “momma arm,” has transitioned.  We miss her, but once you’re part of Team JandJ, you’re always part of Team JandJ.

MARTEEKA KARLAND: Our East-Coast cover artist and second-favorite hillbilly who, in between adjusting her list of favorite astrophysicists, threatens to walk down from Kentucky and actually merc us.

NOVELLETTE WHYTE: Our proofreader and favorite Canadian who reminds us that the only maple syrup worth consuming comes from Canada, which is ironic, considering she despises maple syrup.

RENEE LUKE: Our West-coast cover artist who has now officially known us long enough to threaten to walk across the continental US to merc us.

SAMWISE: Our webmaster and a true gentleman who took mercy on us and helped us get our website back online and looking fabulous.
