Jon Skovron is the author of several Young Adult fantasy novels, including Misfit, Man Made Boy and This Broken Wondrous World. His first adult fantasy series, The Empire of Storms, began last June with the release of Hope and Red, published by Orbit Books.

The second book in the series, Bane and Shadow, will be out February 2017.

Jon's short stories have appeared in publications like ChiZine and Baen's Universe, and more recently in anthologies such

Before we met the robots - and excuse me androids - in STAR WARS, BLADE RUNNER, THE TERMINATOR, SHORT CIRCUIT, WALL-E, heck even WEST WORLD (underrated gem) and CAPTAIN EO (oh yeah I went there) there was the fascinating Off-Broadway stage production of R.U.R. in 1922.

“I've heard people say that they lose themselves in a kiss. But in that moment, it was the opposite for me. I felt like I found myself. Not how I wished I was, or who I was afraid I was becoming, but who I really was.”
Jon Skovron, Struts & Frets

“The stuff you do is way more important than the stuff you believe.”
Jon Skovron, Misfit

“Because sometimes I was tired of feeling so much and I just wanted to shut down and not feel anything. But I guess I wasn't wired that way. All I could do was write about it. Get it out of my head and onto something like paper that I could manage easier.”
Jon Skovron, Struts & Frets
