Jasmine was born in Toledo, Ohio on 5 July, 1992. She was almost born on the 4th of July, but life isn't always fair. She received her BA in 2013 from The University of Toledo with a major in creative writing and a minor in Japanese. In 2015, she earned her MA in English literature from The University of Toledo as well. "The Comet in the Sky," an early excerpt from The Cosmic Adventures of Sophie Zetyld, won second place in The Toledo Writers Workshop's 2015 "Find Your Inner Superhero" short story contest. She currently lives in Ohio with her boyfriend and two mischievous cats, Tantan and Lulu (short for Lucrezia Borgia). She enjoys ballroom dancing, ballet, video games (especially Soul Calibur, Super Smash Bros., Legend of Zelda, and Splatoon), j-fashion (especially Fairy Kei and Lolita), working out, reading, and, of course, writing.
