Friday Features: Memoirs of a Dillettante, Writer B, and A Decrepit Kingdom

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

      Yay! I can’t wait. I’m still trying to get around to budget for new books and Memoirs is up next on my Books To Get list. (freaking hate budgeting for books)

          I can’t EVEN go into the record store. Holy cow. I’ve had to banish myself from there. At least my favorite bookstore is cheaper than the record store but most of the books on my book list are downloads now. I need an inheritance. 😉
