J Alan Erwine

Biography

J Erwine was born Oct. 15, 1969 in Akron, Ohio. Early in his life he was exposed to science, and specifically astronomy. From there on, J’s passion turned to science fiction, a passion that’s never died.

Due to family issues, J eventually found himself in Denver, Colorado, where he still lives (well, right outside now.)

From the time he could put subject and predicate together on paper, J has been writing stories. None of those early stories exist anymore (thankfully), but that passion for writing has never waned.

After several years of rejection, the story Trek for Life was eventually sold to ProMart Writing Lab editor James Baker. It wasn’t Asimov’s, but it was a start. Since that time J has sold more than forty short stories to various small press publishers. In addition ProMart also published a short story collection of J’s entitled Lowering One’s Self Before Fate, and other stories, which is still available. ProMart also published a novel from J entitled The Opium of the People, which sold a few copies before going out of print.

The relevance of the novel after the events of September 11th caused J to self-publish the novel, as he felt the story had a lot to say in the new reality we now find ourselves living in. Now, this same book has been re-released by Nomadic Delirium Press.

Eventually J would become an editor with ProMart. Then, after the untimely death of ProMart editor James Baker, J would move on to ProMart’s successor Sam’s Dot Publishing, where he continues to work today. J also spends most of his time working as a freelance writer and editor.

J’s novel was voted a top ten finisher in the 2003 annual Preditors & Editors contest, and his short story The Galton Principle won a ProMart contest for best story over 5,000 words. In addition, a number of his stories have been voted “best of” in various issue of The Martian Wave and The Fifth DI… and have been included in Wondrous Web Worlds Vols. 2, 3, 4, and 6.

In 2009, the Ephemeris Role Playing Game was released. J is the co-creator of this game, and has written several supplements for the game. The Fall of 2010 will see the release of J's second novel, Red Moon Rising.

J currently lives with his amazing wife, two wonderful children, one crazy cat and a very quiet turtle. J and his wife are expecting their third child.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love spending time with my wife and my three kids, and when time allows, I like watching old sci-fi reruns, and of course I try to read whenever I can.
What is your writing process?
I almost have to laugh at this one. I used to have a writing process, but now with kids and a full time job, I just have to write whenever I can. I love to listen to classical music when I write, and I generally am the type of writer that plods through the entire manuscript, and then goes back and does a tremendous amount of editing later.
