July 2012


A writer of Appalachian-themed thriller and horror novels, Jason lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Carolina's with his wife and four children. He is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys the culture and the many fascinating stories that abound in the Appalachian region.

His stories are born while gazing at the stars by a campfire, listening to the gurgling water of the Chattooga River, hunting in the wilds of the Pisgah National Forest and his many lone camping trips in the Appalachian Mountains he calls home.

Back porch storytelling is a time-honored tradition in the Blue Ridge Mountains and he hopes to pass that tradition along to his readers…one horrifying tale at a time.
