About the Author

JJ Barrows is an artist, writer and stand-up comedian, born and bred with southern manners and a wanderer's heart that has taken her all over the globe. Though she's known for her humor and bright colors, as a "grownup" middle child in recovery from an aggressive eating disorder, confusing religion, dysfunctional family and an on-again-off-again relationship with depression, she writes honestly about the darker shades of life that are often hard to talk about. When not speaking or performing, she enjoys traveling with her husband or life at home on the beaches of Southern California, surfing, biking, or crying at sunset. Life is too beautiful not to cry.

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

JJ Barrows is an Author, Artist and Stand-Up Comedian, juggling jobs, passions and Instagram accounts, and letting it be okay to let some stuff go-- including her Instagram account dedicated to Peanut Butter.

She has toured all over the country performing comedy or speaking on topics close to her heart, finding common ground between pain and humor, and the need for both to exist at the same time. Her Dry Bar Comedy Special "Doodle All Day" can be found on Amazon, as well as DryBarComedy.com.

In addition to the written and spoken word, you can find her abstract expression over on one of her remaining Instagram accounts: @jjbarrowsart (as well as @jjbarrows for more comedy).

Her videos and updates can be found through her website www.jjbarrows.com (be sure to check out her kid's class about authenticity), as well as her weekly blog posts over at itscalledaspade.blog.

She still enjoy peanut butter outside of a virtual reality.

In the words of JJ, "Please feel free to leave a review, spread the word and enjoy each moment as it comes!"
