T. J. Forrester, an international novelist, has been a fisherman, construction worker, and miner. A trekker with more than 17,000 miles on his legs, he thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail in consecutive years.

He wrote Miracles, Inc. and Black Heart on the Appalachian Trail while living in Virginia. The attic room was small, chilly in the winter, but his landlord was very kind and fed him when he was without food.


Dear Friends,

My ride to raise awareness for the Muscular Dystrophy Association will continue during the fall of 2019. At the moment I'm in the southern California desert, where rain is scarce and 115 degree days are the norm. I'm stuck here, moving through the medical system at a glacial crawl.

Miracles, Inc. (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 23, 2010 08:02PM
Description: Chapter 1
“She didn't want me; she wanted all of me. I didn't mind saying it. My girlfriend scared the crap out of me.”
T.J. Forrester, Miracles, Inc.: A Novel

“Truth may start out timid, but it finishes bold.”
T.J. Forrester, Miracles, Inc.: A Novel

“I could quote enough Nietzsche to bore someone into a coma, solve mathematical problems so beautiful they'd make Pythagoras cry; I could talk so much bullshit the listener didn't know if I was coming or going, but I had gotten to know Rickie well enough to realize that I had no idea how a woman's mind worked.”
T.J. Forrester, Miracles, Inc.: A Novel
