About Me



My full name is Jade Elizabeth Jo-Ann Kennedy (posh name eh? lol) and I was born in Hull, East Yorkshire in 1985. I have been writing since an early age, which you can see in one of my early posts 'Where it all began'. I became serious about writing in 2009 and joined allpoetry.com where I became a part of a growing community of writers and received lots of support and encouragement. I have been on a discovery of words and poetry ever since.

A lot of things in my life have influenced my writing. I was bullied very badly at secondary school, I almost died of Meningitis at the age of 17 and also the highs and lows of my eccentric life. I got married in 2012 to my soul mate Carl, he is always a source of inspiration to me. My poem 'Essence of Orange' is about our first date. I am working on a new collection, with artwork by my Mum called 'Art and Poetry from The Purple Tree' - My Mum and me are very close, I don't know where I would be without her. You will see her art or writing popping up on the blog often, as she is a great inspiration to me.

I'm an avid reader and lover of anything to do with History. I have a bit of a soft spot for sci-fi and The Sims 3. I love cats and have a writing buddy called Tomas who turns up on the blog sometimes :)

Below is a list of where you can find my work - this is also so I can keep track of it lol


I'm thrilled to have my poem 'If Only' and my prose piece 'India' included in 'The Best of Vine Leaves Literary Journal 2014'
