A Change

I switched my book, Beyond the Milky Way from Science Fiction to Romance because that is the basis of the plot. While there are qualifying points to make it Science Fiction, the Scifi portions are not as important as the Romance ones.

Hi! Plancha here but I would rather for you to call me J Linz; for some odd reason, Booksie wouldn't let me choose my usual pen name... *shrugs* Plancha is spanish for "iron"...... and it's a dumb story how I ended up with that nickname...


Anyway; I am a 39 year old married woman with no children. My husband and I are both southerners however we reside in Maryland at the moment. Oh; I do have a 5 year old Corgi/Lab/Shepard named Sable and she is my heart!


I have enjoyed writing stories and poems since the age of 10; I've long stopped writing poems but writing stories still occupy my time. I started out simply writing for my entertainment only however I shared a couple of stories with my sister-in-law and she made the suggestion that I should share with the rest of the world! It's kinda nerve-racking because a lot of things that I write about, people aren't really interested in. It's okay... I won't let that stop me from writing!



*I have a lot of interests. As far as books go, I lean towards the fantasy ones; there aren't many outside that genre that I have read on my own. Now, I am a fan of fan fiction writing and my favorite categories there are: DC 'Verse, Marvel, Final Fantasy and Disney-based. However... I will read anything that sounds interesting.

*HUGE Martian Manhunter/J'onn J'onzz fan girl... I've recently started reading comics, though. 

*Music- I enjoy all types of music however my utmost favorite is reggae. I most often find myself listening to that, JPop (or anime theme songs, really...) and rock. I don't have one favorite band or artist; I enjoy Linkin Park, Prince, Nickelback... this list can get lengthy!

*Sports- big time basketball and football fanatic! Favorite teams are: Memphis Tigers, Memphis Grizzlies, Tennessee Titans, Duke Blue Devils basketball, Alabama Crimson Tide football. I try to watch a NASCAR race every now and then but my favorite driver is Dale Earnhardt, Jr. I just got into baseball and I find myself rooting for the Atlanta Braves, Washington Nationals, Memphis Red Birds and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs.

*Video Games- 9 times out of 10, you will see me playing a Final Fantasy game. I also like Call of Duty, especially the Modern Warfare series... but I suck. Kingdom Hearts is pretty cool. Tetris is my mantra. So is Pac-Man and any game affliated with him. DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) is still beast in the arcade for me!

*Food- as my best friend would say, I am indeed a "fat kid with cake" when it comes to food! The way to my heart? Well... after cosplaying as the Martian would be through my stomach! I'd rather go out to eat than go shopping! I have two favorite things to eat that, if I could, I would eat them year round: barbecue and crab legs! 


That's pretty much it! Feel free to suggest anything that you've written in the comment section underneath my profile; requests in my stories are a no-no and I won't do it!
