Please, call him J.
Debut Author Spotlight organizer at Operation Awesome (@OpAwesome6). April Blogging from A to Z Challenge #AtoZChallenge co-host. Author of the urban fantasy “Fractions of Existence” and the writer’s reference book “Preparing to Write Settings that Feel Like Characters.”
This speculative fiction and reference author is happily married and living in Pennsylvania (USA) on the original lands of the Lenni-Lenape people. When not reading or writing, J enjoys finding funny Internet cats, being in the forest, or watching action movies.
J aims to write fiction mixed with lore to unhinge your mind because of a belief that all books, even fictional ones, can change the world by increasing culture. The author longs to share the wisdom and knowledge passed on by stories because that’s the goal of this soul. Entertaining readers honors his life’s purpose.
Describe your novel in 3 words?
Slowburn, choice, powerful
What inspired your novel?
The characters are based off of a Lenni-Lenape legend shared with me years ago by an elder story keeper.
What is your favorite winter tradition?
My favorite winter tradition is going into the woods after a fresh snowfall to listen to the forest. Snow has a way of changing everything. The sounds are sharper. Animals move differently. Smells have a twist, which is difficult to explain other than to say it’s like the difference between a cupcake and a muffin is mostly frosting.
