J. M. Tompkins was born in Atlanta and grew up in a small Georgia town. She studied at Emory University and has worked as a flight attendant and within technology sales. Determined to make her life’s goals come true, she started her own publishing company and began focusing on her true passions.
As an author, she began working on what would become Habitual Humanity in 2012. With novels and novellas planned, she finally took the plunge in 2019 and began to publish her work.
The Habitual Humanity Series and The Habitual Spinoff Series are planned to include nine novellas and two novels. Though, J. M. isn’t afraid to share, don’t be surprised if it turns out to be longer. Her work isn’t secluded to the two Humanity Series, as there are several other novels sitting on her drive ready to get into the reader’s hands.
J. M.’s writings combine several of her loves, including people, nature, science, and technology. Within her writing, she loves to explore what she refers to as interesting science with her fears of what our future society might be like. Interesting science, according to J. M., is the science of today that a large portion of the population still thinks of as science fiction. This includes the possibilities of what can be achieved with Artificial Intelligence, personal data, biohacking, genetic modifications, and more.
J. M currently lives in Georgia with her husband, son, and dogs.
