She is a member of her school's band program, playing percussion, and she also plays piano. A triplet, she lives in Michigan with her parents, older brother, and two sisters. She is considering majoring in Creative Writing in college. She writes poetry on occasion. J. Marie B. is very open-minded. Despite being an agnostic, she believes everyone has a right to their own religious beliefs.

Her first serious work of fiction, Trigger, has been in the works since the summer of 2012. Part One is currently 60% complete, but will be uploaded onto this site periodically. J. Marie B. is hoping for reviews that critique her work as well as offer encouragement in regards to aspects that should not be changed in revision. She is searching for a professional beta to look over what she currently has for her first draft, but she hopes she can also rely on helpful reviews in the event that a beta cannot be found. This work is currently on Hiatus.

    Epigraphs To Be Used in Trigger:

    Part One: The Target:

    Like a ship blown from its mooring
    By a wind off the sea,
    Like a seed dropped by a skybird
    In a distant wood,
    Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
    But because I knew you,
    Because I knew you,
    I have been changed for good.

    Wicked, "For Good"

    Do you think
    That ordinary people
    With ordinary problems
    Don't suffer?

    Well, I'm begging you
    To hold your lips tight.
    There's all of these people
    Close to the edge.

    — Cameron Brown, "Close To The Edge"

    Part Two: The Bullet:

    The question asked in order
    To save her life or take it:
    The answer "No" to avoid death,
    The answer "Yes" would make it, make it.

    "Do you believe in God?"
    Written on the bullet,
    Say "Yes" to pull the trigger.
    "Do you believe in God?"
    Written on the bullet,
    And Cassie pulled the trigger.

    — Flyleaf, "Cassie"

    Murder, murder -
    Or our doorstep!
    Murder, murder -
    So watch your step!
    Murder, murder -
    Take one more step,
    You'll be murdered
    In the night!

    Jekyll and Hyde, “Murder, Murder”

    Look around you!
    I have found
    You cannot tell, by lookin' at the surface,
    What is lurkin' there beneath it!
    See that face!
    Now, I'm prepared to bet you,
    What you see's not what you get -
    'Cause man's a master of deceit!

    Jekyll and Hyde, “Facade”

    Part Three: The Wound:

    Both of you fell the same day.
    You don't know why
    One of you never woke up,
    And you laid your body down on the floor.
    You're desperate to hear her footsteps again,
    But this house is on fire, we need to go.

    — The Fray, "Run For Your Life"

    "For the survivor who chooses to testify, it is clear: his duty is to bear witness for the dead and for the living. He has no right to deprive future generations of a past that belongs to our collective memory. To forget would be not only dangerous but offensive; to forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time."

    — Eliezer Wiesel, Night

    I hesitantly scrolled through a website full of pictures of me sleeping and realized that in each image the strange man gets closer to my bed. In the one uploaded last night, he was lifting the blanket.

    Showered Thoughts & Abandoned Fragments
    A free verse poem I wrote recently for a character in one of my fanfics about his depression. This is from the point of view of that character, as he is the one who writes this poem in the story. This will be included in the completed fanfiction. Don't read if triggered by depression, suicide, self-harm.

    This poem was originally written in 2012. I suppose it could be turned into a song. TRIGGER WARNINGS: This was written during one of my many "peaks" of depression and suicidal thoughts and is about such things. This is the original version.

    Try-Hard reviews
    This is a poem I wrote for a summer poetry class last year right after freshman year. It is my way of ranting about the insult "Try-hard," which I have been called multiple times. So, here is an example of dumb bullying. Feel free to review and share your thoughts and examples of obscure insults. YAY HIGH SCHOOL, right?

    The Inevitability of Human Oblivion
