JD Byrne was born and raised around Charleston, West Virginia, before spending seven years in Morgantown getting degrees in history and law from West Virginia University. He's practiced law for more than 15 years, writing briefs where he has to stick to real facts and real law. In his fiction, he gets to make up the facts, take or leave the law, and let his imagination run wild. He lives outside Charleston with his wife, one-eyed dog, and black cat.

Regardless of what kind of story I'm writing I eventually come to a point where I have to put in something - a new character, a new situation - that I hadn't had in mind when I started.

Much like I did last July,  I’m going to shut down the blog for the month while I focus on other stuff. By “stuff,” I mean actually writing the back end of the first book in the Unari Trilogy. I’ve finished editing the first bit, so now it’s on to new stuff and uncharted territory!

See you in September (or at the Lewisburg Literary Festival) – I hope!
