Jonathan-David Jackson was born in Gastonia, North Carolina, at 3 in the morning on May 14, 1987. At first, he could not walk, talk, or indeed use the toilet. After a year of intensive training in NC, he moved his family to Kingsport, Tennessee, where he finally overcame those early disabilities. Soon, he was walking and talking as good as anyone, and perhaps better. Walking and talking wasn't good enough, though, so he also learned to write.

He wrote and wrote, and with gentle encouragement from his wife, he finally wrote a book - The Quest for Juice. Then he wrote this biography. Perhaps he'll do more things; that would certainly be exciting.

People sometimes told me that I should collect them all into a book, but I didn't really take it seriously. In my later teens, sometimes I would read a book and think "I could write something better than this." So from maybe when I was 18 years old, I wanted to write a book - it took a lot longer to actually do it.(less)

As I was writing The Quest for Juice, I found out that she's very physically tough. Even though Oscar is the main character, Penelope is usually the one getting them out of the situations they get into, and she's often doing it by breaking somebody's face. Unlike everyone else, Penelope understands the seriousness of the situation they're in and is pretty much all business.(less)

I read two comics this year, and both of them were Squirrel Girl (volume 1 and volume 2). And if you only read one comic this year, make it Squirrel Girl, too.
