Jaimee Walls is an introspective blogger who enjoys crafting personal essays. Her love of reading and writing work well with the NW's wet and rainy season. For physical fun, she enjoys the subculture of rhythm skating. She thrives in front of the computer or the blank page as much as in the throes of nature. She is also an adoring and proud grandparent of two. Jaimee's writing career first took hold at Washington State University where she wrote for the school paper with her own editorial column. She surprised everyone (including herself) when she received a Distinction Award (scoring in the top 5%) for her comparative essay on their Timed Writing Test necessary for graduation. Not long after, life forced her to take a hiatus from writing, but the draw to return to the page was too insistent. Her current writing goals are to dip into every genre with everything she's got. She recently finished the first draft of her first novel which is a Dystopian Adventure with the possibility of being the first in a 6-7 book series. She expects to have several short stories and personal essays published during 2018 while she polishes her manuscript. She is also a member of the Willamette Writers Group.
