J.A. Beard is a restless soul married to an equally restless soul. His two children are too young yet to discuss whether or not they are restless souls. When he hasn't been writing, studying history, or making excuses for not writing, he's tried his hand at several careers including intelligence analysis, programming, and research science. Though he likes to declare himself the Pie Master, he's yet to prove his worth in the brutal baking show-downs of Celebration, Florida.

I haven't had a lot of time to write this summer due to personal commitments related to my children. I have, however, had a lot of time to think about my writing and where I want to go with it.

So, to be efficient, I'm announcing that I'm going to retire this pen name. I'm moving into some different genres and styles. I feel that I've drifted from what I wanted to do when I started writing and p... Read more of this blog post »

Tiphanie Thomas Hi Jeremy,

How's it going? Since you have over 50 books in your profile, are you a librarian? I need someone to combine my two Heart Stealer books into one.

Thanks!
Tiphanie
