Author of The Vine Bleeds, J.M. Yates,was born in Melbourne, Australia, in the 1940s.

Disillusioned at being denied the opportunity, by her controlling father, of following her dream of being a doctor, Jenny left school at an early age.

Her childhood was plagued by domestic violence fuelled by alcohol addiction which had a profound influence on her life choices.

Later in life she returned to study, gained her Higher School Certificate and enrolled in a writing course.

Jenny never planned to write a book but her yearning for education led her to university. After she obtained her Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Professional Writing she completed her memoir, The Vine Bleeds.
