J. R. Frontera‘s love of science fiction and fantasy originated with her early exposure to the worlds of Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, and Dune. Exploring the potential and pitfalls of future or fantastical worlds is a temptation she’s just never been able to resist. She lives in rural Missouri with her husband, son, and a random assortment of four-legged friends. She writes mostly speculative fiction with a side of love story, but dabbles in a bit of everything else, from children’s stories and poetry to erotica. She has been telling stories in some form or another since she could hold a crayon and draw.
Her proficiency for the English language (as well as proper grammar and punctuation) was recognized by teachers throughout her schooling, and family and friends (and coworkers and supervisors) have long come to her for the proofreading of various projects. (In fact, she finally gave up and now offers editing services to fiction authors!) She began blogging before blogging was a word, jumped into the world of online fanfiction in 2003, and for a brief, glorious few months, wrote review articles on Burn Notice and Stargate: SG-1 for F.A.D.P.O.V. (From a Different Point of View – a website dedicated to female fans of science fiction, fantasy, and high-action fandoms) before it was discontinued.
After a few years as a Research Assistant at KUMC and co-authoring three scientific research papers on diabetes, she currently works at a small but successful medical software development company while noveling, freelance editing, and cosplaying whenever she can find a free moment.
