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 years. His debut novel, RISING SIGN, was started while he was backstage between scenes. Following a similarly warped trajectory, he now works in Deaf education as a high school teacher.

The STAR CHILD TRILOGY is now complete and two standalone novels, LET's PLAY IT BY EAR and THE OUTERLANDS have joined the trilogy on his shelf.
