Jeff took an early retirement from his career at Intel in 2014 to become a full-time author. He is, most importantly, a husband and father, a devout member of his church, and is occasionally spotted roaming hills with oak trees and granite boulders in California or in any number of the state's majestic redwood groves. He is also one of the founders of Deep Magic: the E-zine of Clean Fantasy and Science Fiction (www.deepmagic.co)

The settings of Muirwood and Mirrowen are different. It's not the same world. But you have noticed (correctly) that there are similarities between them. I'm letting my readers speculate about this for now and may reveal more later on this topic. Stay tuned!(less)

While it feels a little strange announcing a new series before you’ve had the chance to finish reading The Grave Kingdom, well…book one is already available for pre-order, so I’ve decide to spill the beans, let the cat out of the bag, and tell you all what is coming next!

“It is a cruel fact, child. Wisdom comes after the moment when it is most needed.”
Jeff Wheeler, The Blight of Muirwood

“If it looks a bit rough, a little worn, with little splotches - those have the swetest flavor. The ones that are perfect on the outside tend to be a bit more bland. That is true about many things in life.”
Jeff Wheeler, The Wretched of Muirwood

“There is wisdom in climbing mountains... For they teach us how truly small we are.”

Thanks Amelia! Very kind of you to say and I wish you well with your writing. Thanks for reaching out.


Amelia Jeff,

Just wanted to let you know the Muirwood books are among my favorites, and helped push me over the edge to decide to write myself. I was deeply inspired by the way you weaved themes into your story and characters so successfully. I've a lot of respect for you and your writing, as well as your efforts in self publishing. I can't wait to read your new book!

Amelia
