J.G. VanDenKooy was born in Las Vegas, NV. He began by writing music at a young age and, after reading 'Good Omens' by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, became an avid reader.

In 2010 he attended Southern Utah University to study music, but left to transfer in 2012.

He now lives in California, and is a BFA student at California Institute of the Arts studying composition and digital arts. He writes novels for the love of it.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman
"I wanted to review this book, but I don't think I can...it's just so much to cover that I don't even know where to begin! Incredible, unique story! I cannot wait to see it adapted for television, which should be soon! Thanks, HBO!"
