Jason currently lives in Kentucky near the small town Wexton is based on, with his very patient wife, several children, and one small and incredibly neurotic dog.

His first novel 'For Every Action' was finished in 2014, and was originally published in three parts; 'Stormfront', 'Prometheus Within', and 'The Third Law'. All of them earned consistent four and five star reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Google Play, Smashwords, and Kobo. In January of 2016, Jason made the decision to consolidate them into the novel 'For Every Action' to satisfy reader demands.

Jason has since written 'Rise of The Embodied', the next installment in the Quantum Mechanic series, which garnered even higher praise from readers and critics. He loves heari

However, I do occasionally get stuck on how to write it. In those instances I try not to force it, and usually the way forward appears after a few days.(less)

I don't want things to devolve into some sort of group writing exercise, but what they have to say is important. Sometimes they questions they ask, or points they make influence the story.

Plus, they are why I write, so I love hearing about their enjoyment.(less)

“Everyone asks me how I got started into writing. I wish I had some cool story to tell, but the truth is pretty lame. My wife and I were having a drink on our back porch and I mentioned a concept I'd been mulling over. She suggested that I write it down, and so I figured I'd make a few notes and get it out of my system. No matter how I tried though, it just wouldn't let me write it in any other way than a story. Believe me when I say I tried, but 63,000 words later I realized that I needed a chart to track the plot and personas to maintain character consistency. So I just gave up and let it write itself from that point on.

As far as I'm concerned now, I'm just hanging on and trying to keep up.”
