J. N. Race is a trophy junkie and retrogaming fanatic who resides in Southern California. Raised on a healthy diet of fable and fiction, frequent childhood library trips served as the main pathway into an escapist world of fantasy lore. A love of video games would soon follow, thus enhancing a deep and unchallenged respect for the power of Story and the written word. A graduate of American Intercontinental University, J. N. Race obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Communication in 2006.

I make it a habit to keep several notebooks at the ready where I can jot down whatever the muses see fit to bestow upon me at any moment.

A lot of times, no matter how much you prepare, life just kind of happens to you. The best thing about being a writer, for me, is restoring a sense of order in a world that I can always return to when I'm ready.

Writing is also a great way to preserve your voice. It's a way of leaving your mark long after you are gone and giving others a chance to view the world through a different lens for awhile. Reading shapes people, and writing is the other side of that coin. It's tough not to love that. (less)

You can't stop it. It's just a part of life. But you CAN soften the blow by reconnecting with the people you love at school and work. It makes the da... Read more of this blog post »
