A Texas native, Jesse was born in Corpus Christi and lived there until moving to Denton in 1999 to attend the University of North Texas. Thirteen years and four degrees later, he's still in Denton and writing science fiction and fantasy. Though a perennial bachelor, he lives with his five roommates: a programmer, a voice actress, an engineer, a costume designer, and a Japanese teacher. Needless to say, life is never dull.

Falling Angel is, in many ways, a very enjoyable book. With space combat and an apocalyptic threat reminiscent of Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" or Poul Anderson's "Twilight World," there's a lot to like. However, the many questions raised at the start of the book are largely left unanswered at the end, making the plot as a whole somewhat unsatisfying.
The quality of writing--often impressive, occasionally flawed--seems representative of the book as a whole. Though not brilliant, it's certainly competent and I would be interested to see more from this author.
