Jared R. Lopatin grew up in Philadelphia with great dreams of becoming a veterinarian or muppeteer. Naturally, he ended up performing on a stage for four years. Following a similarly warped trajectory, he now works in Deaf education as an English teacher. In the midst of all of that, he started writing. "Rising Sign" was his first novel.

Since then, there have been others, but there's always a new book in the works - isn't there always?
