Jimmetta Carpenter was born and raised in thePrince George’s County Maryland and has had a very big imagination since a very early age. She has been writing poetry since she was in elementary school around the age of ten. Her love of words has allowed her to express herself in ways in which verbally she can not. She is the Editor and Creator of the Free Fall Literary E-Zine and the Spoken Like A Queen E-Zine. She has a book of poetry titled “The Art of Love” published through lulu.com under the pen name Gemini. She has just had her first novel, “The Diary: Succession of Lies” published in September 2010 under the Pseudonym Jaycee Durant and is currently working on her first second and third novels.
She is looking forward to having a very long and rewarding career in writing and hopes that through living out her dreams she can inspire someone else out there to realize theirs. Her advice to other up and coming authors is to NEVER stop believing in your dreams and don’t ever be afraid to dream big.
