My Books

These fiction books are written under the pen name J E Ocean. These books were written for me and sound like me; the books I write for my client sound like my clients. Enjoy.

WindowlandWindowland by author writer J.E. Ocean, writer, ghostwriter Central Ohio,

Obsessed with mirrors, Jaaz looks forward to the giant mirror maze that comes with their annual festival. While she’s watching the many iterations of herself passing through the infinity of the maze, she catches a glimpse of someone who looks like her emerging from the reflective glass in front of her. The woman quickly entrusts Jaaz with a wand-like device, claiming it will answer all of her questions about mirrors. Then the wand begins to glow.

Suddenly, a group of enormous, fierce-looking men catch sight of the glimmer, and Jaaz finds herself the target of a chase. While evading them, she body slams into a dead end. Instead of breaking the glass, she falls through it and finds herself in Windowland, a realm filled with the ability to see into every room in the world.
