Jamie K. Schmidt has over thirty short stories published in small press and ezines. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz in Secondary Education English, which is a fancy way of saying she went to college to teach high school English. When that didn't pan out, she worked as a call center manager, a Tupperware consultant, a paralegal, and finally a technical writer for a major conglomerate company. She is an active member in the Romance Writers of America. When not writing, Jamie relaxes with a mug of hot tea and knits or makes beaded jewelry. A voracious reader, Jamie has a Kindle and is not afraid to use it -- once she can find it.
