When Jaka was three years old, sitting in his grandfather's lap, he wanted to do what his grandpa was doing. So, he learned to read. Starting with obituaries.

Reading soon led to writing. At an early age, Jaka realized he was better at writing than talking. Even today, he doesn't like small talk. But his characters do, and they're pretty good at it. Jaka believes that this is one of life's ironies.

His favorite part of the year is summer, his favorite fruit is strawberries, and his favorite book is Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke. Probably because after four decades of living in his current body, he's still waiting for his childhood to end. He wouldn't mind if it never does.

Currently, he lives with his family in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Androidi čutijo v barvah by Jaka Tomc
"Zelo všečna zgodba, ki se hitro bere. Všeč so mi bile predstavljene ideje o prihodnosti in neenakosti, kar dela knjigo zelo aktualno za ta čas. Edini pomislek, da bi lahko bila daljša. Priporočam v branje."

“We are like chess players who are trying to predict the opponent’s future moves, but in this case, we are dealing with life itself. True masters do not play the game on a single chessboard, but on multiple chessboards at the same time. And what’s the difference between grandmasters and masters? Surprises. The moves that cannot be predicted by the opponent. Life can play a simultaneous game with seven billion people at the same time and it can take each and every one of us by surprise. And we still believe we are capable of winning, because we can predict three of four moves ahead. We are insignificant.”
Jaka Tomc, 720 Heartbeats

“Life takes place on so many different levels it is impossible to imagine them all. There are seven billion people on earth. That’s seven billion different views of the world, seven billion truths, seven billion autonomous thoughts.”
Jaka Tomc, 720 Heartbeats

“Nikoli nisem razumel ljudi, ki zjutraj vstanejo, pojedo zajtrk, si umijejo zobe in se odpravijo v službo. Usedejo se za računalnik in si ob tipkovnico postavijo skodelico sveže skuhane kave. Čvekajo s sodelavci, surfajo po internetu in si pošiljajo kratke filmčke prek maila. In vsi, prav vsi dajejo vtis, da delajo nekaj strašno pomembnega. Med kratkimi odmori se dobivajo v kadilnicah ali pred vhodom na cigaretih, kjer razpravljajo o tem kakšne gume si je privoščil šef na
svojem novem audiju in kdo se kurba s kom. Popoldne ugasnejo računalnik, pred vhodom pokadijo še kako
cigareto, se usedejo v avtomobil in se odpeljejo domov. Pojejo večerjo, spijejo pivo, pogledajo nadaljevanko, če je dober dan, nategnejo ženo in gredo spat. In tako dan za dnem. Rutina me je vedno ubijala, zato sem se trudil, da bi živel čim bolj pestro, nekonvencionalno življenje. Nikoli se nisem videl v vrstni hiši z zeleno trato in belo ograjo, ženo, psom in dvema otrokoma. Takšno življenje se mi je zdelo preveč pusto. Življenje je prekratko. Živi hitro, umri mlad.”
Jaka Tomc, Začetek konca

“Pri 14 letih sem izdal prvo knjigo, s 16 leti sem bil v LA Timesu proglašen za najbolj obetavnega mladega pisatelja v državi. Preden sem dopolnil 18 let, sem bil odvisen od pomirjeval in večino časa pijan. Življenje pisatelja prinaša določene posledice.”
Jaka Tomc, Začetek konca

“Najprej začneš videti več. Potem slišiš več. In nazadnje čutiš več. Veš vse o vsem in vse ti je popolnoma jasno. Vidiš povezanost vsega in jo občutiš. Veš, da si eno z vesoljem.”

“A thought has no boundaries. A hundred kilometers or a hundred billion, five minutes or five million years. With a thought, you can instantly be anywhere and
any time.”
