Hi – my name’s Jemiah. I write books by inclination, and proofread and manage workflow for comic books by vocation. Here you’ll find info on my published works, thoughts on and previews of the upcoming Dark Horse projects I’m doing, a bit about me, and then a bit more about me.

Link me!

oh hey, cool, that’s right, I have a website!

not much to report, though, not really, if you don’t count a really intense Once Upon a Time in Hollywood obsession (and yeah I am watching it right now – again – fifth time – plenty more in my future). I wrote some fanfic about it and I intend to write some more.

I dunno… I’m just sort of drawing inward these days… I can’t figure it.

That is the general scientific consensus, and I believe it – but I still have no explanation for why, when I’ve been going like gangbusters for two weeks or more, I require a day where I sleep for, on average, 18 hours. Therefore, if you ever see me on Saturday, it’s kind of amazing. Usually I’m unconscious on Saturday.

I’ve heard of one other person doing this – another MS patient who works full time. That’s… kind of a drag.

Current viewing: The Good Place, season 2, and preparing to begin Better Call Saul, season 4. I’ll get back to Ozark at some point, not to mention the Netflix Marvel shows, which – I’m not NOT into it, but sort of not excited about it right this minute, whereas I am excited about BCS. It’s all about moods. I like Iron Fist. I’m just… literally too tired to watch action at the moment? Maybe?

Last weekend I went to Rose City Comic Con, witnessed the glory of David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Felicia Day, and himself, John Barrowman, as well as his learned sister Carole. I also gave John a copy of Before and After Michael. I should have personalized it more, but oh well, if the eggplant sticker doesn’t get my point across, what really would?

I have updated my Amazon Author Page quite a bit, with some extra information about my stuff, and some new pictures of me, including the magical pencil sketch of me done by comics titan Steve Lieber. I’ve been drawn by the guy who drew Superior Foes of Spider-Man!

Otherwise… just muddling through… hoping to have a book launch party soon, and get some giveaways or presence at this year’s Wordstock – oh, excuse me, Portland Book Festival, or something else basic like that. Anyway, big ol event. If I have the money maybe I’ll table there.

Current listening: Janelle Monae, The Audition. This relatively obscure release shows that Janelle could produce a beautiful, graceful, fun-to-funky R&B album even if it didn’t satisfy her.



Hey, don’t be too harsh on me – I feel like I’m losing my mind and I may be having hot flashes? Anyway, hello there 2018. More updates to come soon.

Especially about this hot trick:




Oh dear I haven’t updated in about a billion years. Crushing depression and inertia will do that to ya.

No news on the writing front, but I’ve been heavily into Twin Peaks – The Return. I’ve been accumulating links to articles about it. They’re all great (well, these ones are, anyway). I hope that witnessing this singular artwork helps inspire me to write the story based on a vivid dream I had…
