She started writing poetry at the age of five. As she grew older, her high school teachers; noticing her talent, strongly encouraged her to write. She began writing short stories and astonished her teachers. During high school, she was intensely interested in Shakespeare and was often found reading with a book always in her hands.
Many years later, she finished writing several poetry collections, with romantic and major life event themes. She soon won poetry contests, participated in several poet strolls and was published in numerous poetic anthologies.
J A Boulet later wrote her first historical fiction novel, based in Budapest during WWII. She finished and copyrighted this rough first novel. It wasn't perfect but the seeds of history were planted.
