Complete Author Bio: Jewel Scott, Marsha Rogers, shadowJewel

As with most writers, I began writing early in my life. However, serious writing began in the mid-‘90’s when I joined the Ash Canyon Poets in Carson City, Nevada. Ash Canyon Poets is a workshop group that meets weekly. I am also a member of the Erotica Readers and Writers Association, submitting my work to the scrutiny of other writers. With support and encouragement from both groups, I considered publication of some of my works.

Over the next few years several of my poems appeared in anthologies, including Community in the American West, published by the Nevada Humanities Committee; There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays, published by Papier Mache; 90 Poets for the Nineties, published by The Seminole Press. Other poems appeared in magazines such as Pegasus, Parchment Symbols, Warrior Poets, Remembrance, Night Roses, Our Journey and Portals. My poetry appeared in all of the first four issues of High Desert Review, a publication dedicated to the writing of Nevada educators. Additionally, I was editor of the third edition of High Desert Review.

Some of my poetry has also appeared in online magazines such as Clean Sheets. ENE, LdyJessika’s Adult Story Corner, and G. Gregory’s MyErotica. On a weekly basis I update columns to Backwash as The Oldest Cyber-Geek I Know (education) and Anything Under the Sun (editorial) and biweekly publish the Wordcraft newsletter, also at Backwash. I am also currently working as assistant editor and contributor to, an online magazine devoted to women’s sexuality.

I write and maintain a website at dedicated writing tips for teachers. In conjunction with that endeavor I publish a weekly newsletter to educators about web sites which can be used in classrooms. I also maintain two additional web sites: Rash’s Poetry House contains poetry and Shadowjewel’s Castle is dedicated to my erotic scribblings.
