Jeffrey Allen Davis

Biography

Jeffrey Allen Davis writes from a suburb of St. Louis, MO, where he lives with his wife Vickie, two step-children Jayson and Breeanna (yes that's really the spelling of her names), and his daughter Kaitlyn (part-time). An ordained minister, Davis’s writing tends to take place within a Christian worldview, even if the story isn’t overtly religious.

Davis spends his time watching Christian and martial arts movies, hanging out with his family, studying the Word, and contemplating the joy of Reformed Theology.

In his day job, Davis works as a loyalty travel agent. He is slowly learning the industry and has finally gotten most of the airport codes committed to memory.

He is also a very political person who enjoys discussing his conservative views. On top of that, he will gripe--to anyone who will listen--about how Marvel Comics ruined Spider-Man by ret-conning his marriage to Mary Jane. That and how Wizards of the Coast ruined D&D with the 4th edition of the game.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
When I was in elementary school, I can remember drawing a picture book about a duck on a pond that was killed by a shark. I suppose I was too young to really figure out how a shark got into a land-locked body of fresh water. As I grew older, I developed the characters who would populate my "Adventure Chronicles" series, writing short stories about them by hand and drawing pictures to go along with them. When I was in high school, I finally tried my hand at writing without the pics, as I had finally realized that I'm a lousy artist. I wrote a short story about a ninja clan that took over a high school. After I graduated, I got my first computer and expanded that story into what would become INVASION OF THE NINJA.
What made you decide to write a story about a porn star who becomes a Christian?
Over the years, I've become Facebook and (just to show HOW MANY years) Myspace friends with a few members of the "Pink Cross," all of whom had that very background. Growing up, I had an addiction to pornography. In 2009, I had gone through a particularly nasty divorce and was going through a terribly lonely time. I found myself falling back into the addiction, surfing the web and looking at videos. I came across one that starred one of the members of the "Pink Cross" from before her conversion. It was like God was slapping me and saying, "This is your SISTER!!!" So I turned off the video and sent a lengthy email to her, apologizing. She graciously accepted. I would say that Kassandra Moore is loosely based off of these women.

Smashwords book reviews by Jeffrey Allen Davis

  • Apocalyptic and Dystopian Tales on Aug. 12, 2013

    The stories are really flash fiction, as they are mostly a few pages each. A couple of them deal with environmental issues. Some of them have a "Twilight Zone-esque" quality about them. Many of them have Biblical undertones with characters who test their faith and sacrifice for others. All are very entertaining, although I was a bit confused by the ending of "Hope." My favorites: "World War Four," "White," "Count to Ten," and "Escaping Darkness."
