Ian J. Malone
As a graduate of Florida State University, I’ve written in a number of arenas over the years ranging from public health to news and sports. When it comes to my fictional work, however, I’m a firm believer that nothing shapes an author’s writing like experience which is why I credit my tenures in radio, law enforcement, sports management, and the military for much of my thematic inspiration (plus the legion of friends and family who stood with me through all of it).
Beyond writing, I’m an avid fan of audiobooks and athletics, though it’s also not uncommon to find me at a concert (LOVE music!), a movie, or somewhere outdoors.
A native of Florida, I currently reside in Raleigh, North Carolina with my wife (“Smalls”), our superhero-in-training (“the X-man”), and our family’s Boston Terrier (the “legendary” Denny Crane).
