Jason has been telling stories his entire life. He entered the professional writing world at eight years old, joining his mother's formal critique group as a participating member. Since that time, he has written over half a dozen stories in all genres, from murder mystery to high fantasy, children's adventure to historical fiction. His non-fiction work has also been widely read online.

In addition to fiction writing, Jason is a speaker, songwriter, and computer programmer. A traumatic brain injury at age 16 fundamentally changed his outlook on life, ultimately turning his focus to communication and education. The unique blend of these passions, paired with a broad academic background, flavors everything he creates.

I took that advice to heart early, and have introduced all manner of unusual circumstances into my stories to get unstuck. One of the most memorable was a giant snake I dropped into the middle of one character's path.

Stronger bouts of writer's block, however, tell me that I got something wrong in the story. Try as I might, I won't get unstuck without figuring out where I went wrong, and fixing it.(less)
