Who Do I Think I Am, Anyway?

My name is Jaye Wells. I’m a USA Today-bestselling, award-winning author of more than a dozen novels, several novellas, and multiple short stories in the genres of gothic horror, urban fantasy, and romance. My books have been translated into several languages, been optioned for TV, and even been taught in college courses. I hold an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. For the last few years, I’ve served as faculty and mentor for Writing Workshops Dallas. I also mentor for Horror Writers Association, and have been faculty and guest of honor for many conventions and writing workshops.

I love stories. I love to write them, and I love to teach how to write them. I also enjoy sharing my own experiences and mistakes to help others navigate living a creative life.


“Jaye Wells is passionate about teaching and excellent at it as well as at writing. The intersection of those two things made this a wonderful class. She also has a knack for providing critiques that are honest and constructive in a manner that was just what I needed.”

“Jaye Wells' seminar on world building was great—she not only gave us invaluable insights into the art of world building, but she also approached it from a practical standpoint, helping us to understand how to balance her suggestions with the ultimate goal of real-world publication. I highly recommend these workshops.”
