Can you share a short bio?
JK Coi is code name for the deadliest member of a super secret spy organization whose mission is to seek out and destroy mullets and meggings in the unsuspecting public.
Just kidding.
I’m really nothing special. I’m just a woman with a husband and a son, who loves to write. I also like to read, walk with the dog, and create things with stained glass.
