Jonathan Chateau grew up reading books by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Michael Crichton. However it was Fight Club—both the 1996 novel by Chuck Palahniuk and the 1999 film by David Fincher—that inspired him to pursue writing.

Currently he has completed two novels, Faith Against the Wolves & Nightmares in Analog. His third book, The Death Wish Game, is due October 2017. It's about a group of passengers on an ill-fated bus ride to Florida that awaken to find themselves duct-taped to their seats, stranded in the middle of nowhere and forced into a game of survival.

When Jonathan's not writing, he's wandering the aisles of Home Depot, painting Warhammer miniatures, jamming out to My Chemical Romance, or spending time with family and friend

It's a challenge because I often don't know what's going to happen next or where to take the story. But that in of itself proves to be the blessing as well, because if the story is unfolding for me as I write it, the hope is that it is unfolding the same way for the reader.(less)

The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
“A Connector might tell ten friends where to stay in Los Angeles, and half of them might take his advice. A Maven might tell five people where to stay in Los Angeles but make the case for the hotel so emphatically that all of them would take his advice. These are different personalities at work, acting for different reasons. But they both have the power to spark word-of-mouth epidemics.”
