All About Missy Jane

Ms. Missy Jane is the alter ego of a married mother of four who was born and raised in Texas. A few years ago she finished reading a book by Mercedes Lackey and thought "Now, what if..." and a monster was created. Missy now spends most of her time lost in worlds of her own making, alternately loving and hating such creatures as vampires, shape-shifters and gargoyles (to name a few). When not writing, she spends her time reading, taking photos of her beautiful daughters and training her husband to believe she's always right. She lives near Houston and doesn’t understand why everyone hasn’t moved to the South.

Movies that Moved Me

Tagged as Missy Jane

Whenever I step out into the bright sunlight I usually exclaim “Bright light! Bright light!”. The sad thing is my kids have no clue what I’m talking about. Unfortunately there are a lot of eighties and early nineties movie references I make that go right over their heads. So, to remedy the situation I’ve decided to make a Must See Movie list. These are movies I grew up on, ones that touched me in some way. Almost none of them would be considered “classics” by critics. Many of them have fallen into obscurity. But to me, this is part of my childhood and what made me who I am today. Of course, that’s not necessarily a good thing.

So, here is what I’ve come up with so far. In no particular order:

Splash (This isn’t the only Tom Hanks movie on the list. Really, just about anything with him in it is a good movie to watch in my opinion)

Big (See? I told you. This one makes me laugh every single time I watch it.) Read more…

He Fooled Me with Romance

I met my husband through a co-worker when I was twenty. His hazel eyes drew me in and before I knew it I was trapped. On our very first date he cooked dinner for me. He was soon baby-sitting my one-year old while I worked and doing the little things I’d been missing from male [...]

Here There Be Vampires

I’ve been an avid fantasy and sci-fi fan for most of my reading life. In my youth my favorite books were the mysteries where you could choose your own ending from one or two choices. Those might not seem like fantasy at first glance, but choosing my own ending was pure fantasy to me. As [...]

A Book by any Other Name is Not as Interesting

  Whenever inspiration for a new book hits me it comes in many forms. Sometimes I'll hear a phrase and think it would make a good title, then I'm stuck trying to create a story to match. One thing I've noticed about titles is how they usually match their genres. I've actually stood in the [...]

Day Shift by Missy Jane

By On Nov 11 2011, 9:00 am

The first time I wrote vampires, my heroine was a jealous, homicidal bitch with a score to settle. She was vindictive and violent and honestly gave me nightmares. She also has never been published. I shelved that book almost immediately after finishing it because everyone was writing vampires. Though that trend hasn't diminished much in [...]
