Profile Pic take 2.png

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 first published at the age of sixteen, had a popular poetry blog, published in several magazines, and began working on what would become the Habitual Humanity Series in 2012. She finally took the plunge in 2019 to begin publishing her books.


As a member of the writing community, J. M. has organized multiple writing groups including the Next Level Writing Group and The Indie Group, is the director of the ASPC (Atlanta Self-Publishing Conference), and has taught classes on self-publishing and on writing science fiction.

J. M.’s writings combine several of her passions 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 and enjoys camping and hiking with her husband, son, and dogs.
