Hi, I’m Jane Ridgewood; a Michigan-based author of horror and poetry.
I have been writing since my adolescence. As someone who has dealt with depression and anxiety their whole life, writing has definitely been a great tool for me in coping with both of those mental health issues. At a young age I found poetry perfect for personal expression, while also finding much passion in creative writing. Over the years I have certainly pursued on and off in moments of my writing as a career. Unfortunately, I was my own worst enemy for a very long time.
Now as cliché as this may be, it really wasn’t until I finally tried NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for the first time in 2016 that I found a new level of confidence in my ability to write a novel. I not only beat the challenge that first year (and the other years I’ve participated), but it truly propelled me on a journey in pursuing a literacy career that I had only dreamed of before.
Presently, I am working on my debut full length horror novel, Collected.
