J.F. Gump

Biography

JF (Jesse) Gump is a US author. His early work consisted of short stories ranging from Science Fiction Adventure to Romantic Suspense. When he was sent to Thailand on a long-term work assignment, he discovered a world that blurred the lines of fantasy and reality. His first short story set in Thailand became a short novelette. His second effort became a novel that retells the star-crossed life of a young Thai woman nd her foreign lover. It was titled 'Even Thai Girls Cry'.
His second novel 'The Farang Affair' reveals the unexpected aftermath of events from his first novel. Two women, one baby, and a farang are drawn by fate and circumstance to the beach resort city of Pattaya. Inconvenient truths stoke emotional turmoil in their search for a new life.
'One High Season' completes Jesse's Thailand Trilogy. 'One High Season' delves into matters of life, death, and choices. A single mistake, a misunderstanding, throws his Thai and farang characters into a maelstrom of fear and panic. It takes a near-miracle to pull them back from the edge of hatred. To tell more would ruin the ending.
Jesse needs every visitor to Thailand to buy a copy of his first three books so he can stop working for a living and finish his latest tale of Thailand (smile).
