About Me

Jaycee Durant, born Jimmetta Carpenter, is the Editor and Creator of the Free Fall Literary E-Zine and the Spoken Like A Queen E-Zine. She has dedicated herself to the power of the words and given into her passion for writing and has been writing poetry officially since the age of ten. She has a book of poetry titled “The Art of Love” published through lulu.com under the pen name Gemini. She is currently finishing up with her first novel and already working on her second and third which will be published under the pseudonym Jaycee Durant. In 1998 she had her poem “Rest In Peace” published in an anthology put out by the International Library of Poetry and in the Spring of 2007 will have another poem titled “Through The Eyes of an Angel” published in another anthology also put out by the International Library of Poetry. She was also awarded the Editor’s Choice Award for that poem as well.


She has been writing steadily since the age of ten and has dedicated herself to the power of words and her passion for writing. She currently still resides in Maryland with her seven year old daughter. She is working on her second and third novels which she hopes to be released soon. She is also beginning work on a young adult fiction series.


She is looking forward to having a very long and rewarding career in writing and hopes that through living out her dreams she can inspire someone else out there to realize theirs. Her advice to other up and coming authors is to NEVER stop believing in your dreams and don’t ever be afraid to dream big.
