Born in the Midlands, J.R. Bournville found her home in Scotland, UK, a land still very much alive with magic. The enchanting nature of the written word has always been a source of enjoyment for her; it was only a matter of time before the compulsion to write took hold. Her passion for writing often manifests itself as fiction, specifically short stories with a distinct fondness for the unusual and the darker side of life.
Despite living with longterm illness, J.R. achieved a major goal of moving from the city to living a more rural life—a journey which she touches upon in her non-fiction book 'Embracing Possibilities'. J.R. now has her sights set on achieving a balance between success and happiness through writing. Her next dream goal is to cruise through the Fjords and enjoy a drink or two under the Midnight Sun.
