About Me

A Little About Me…

Writer of the crazy, reader of anything, lover of chocolate, sister to three, friend to all, and follower of Jesus.

My name is J.C. Buchanan, and I’m a 18-year-old homeschool student from Illinois. I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and reading for even longer.

My first book, The Hidden Amethyst, released in early 2013. You’ll Be Like Faye came out in 2015 and Proof of Purple released in 2018. I also had a short novella sequel come out in 2017, and my fourth full-length novel is in the works. 😉

When I’m not writing, thinking about writing, planning for writing, or reading, I’m likely hanging out with my amazing friends, eating chocolate, making movies, babysitting awesome children, or hanging out or volunteering at church.

I believe in the power of fiction to change the world and my sole desire is to show people God’s amazing love through my writing!

A Bit of History:

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. When I was 5, I told my mom I was going to publish a book when I was 10. When I was 9, I decided that was going to really happen, so I started writing and The Hidden Amethyst came out a few years later when I was 12. The rest is history.

Some things I love:

Hanging out with my friends
Dark chocolate
My church
Essential oils
Scarves and hats and gloves
Books Bookshelves
Listening to music
Granola bars
Being outside
The Wingfeather Saga
Bullet Journaling
Patterned Leggings

Random Facts:

I am way too obsessed with the color purple. Thereof, everything about me and almost everything I own is purple.

I have been homeschooled my whole life and yes, I love it, and yes, I have friends. Too many of them to count, in fact. 🙂

I’m constantly babysitting or playing with kids, and loving every minute of it. I probably spend more time with kids than with people my own age. 😜

I have three younger brothers that are slightly crazy.

“Never trust anyone who hasn’t brought a book with them.” (Lemony Snicket)

I love sharpies. And pens. And gel pens. And sharpie pens. And pencils. And markers. My desk currently has 10 mugs on it, full of a variety of these.

I’m completely OBSESSED with MBTI personality theory. I’m an ENFP, by the way.

I’m way too addicted to Pinterest.

One day I WILL be fluent in at least 10 languages. My current language endeavor is Greek, and I absolutely love it.

Rereading books is one of life’s greatest joys (this is not up for debate). 😉


So there’s a bit about me…hope you enjoy your time on this blog! All credit goes back to God for He’s the one who gave me these talents to begin with. 💖
