Jeff Seymour writes hopeful, heartfelt fantasy that blends modern characters with timeless plots and offers something new and fantastic on every page. His debut middle-grade novel, Nadya Skylung and the Cloudship Rescue, was a finalist for the 2019 Colorado Book Award in Juvenile Literature, and his epic fantasy Soulwoven got over a million reads while being featured on Wattpad. Over eight years as an editor, Jeff has worked on over 100 novels, including books for New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors. In his free time, he plays more video games than he should, pretends he knows anything about raising children, and gathers ideas for stories everywhere he goes.

If she's not around, I'll go for a walk or listen to music. And if I can't find the right path for a story to take, I'll just start down one of the wrong ones. Usually before I get too far I'll figure out which direction I should have gone in instead, and I lose less time by writing a few pages I have to cut than I would by banging my head against the wall trying to figure out the right answer ahead of time.(less)

One is that it's 2:00 p.m. on a Monday and I'm answering questions on Goodreads rather than doing a job I enjoy less. But mostly I love the craft of it. I'm enamored of words and stories. I love studying them and how to use them, and I love putting what I learn into practice and then hearing back from readers, especially when I can tell from their voice or their face or their words that I've given them something precious in return for their time.(less)
