J.P. Yager

Biography

Writing books is one of the best forms of expression. You get to take a reader through your imagination and hope they enjoy the ride. I’ve been writing since I was in 3rd grade. Back then I was into Scary Stories then Scary Stories for Sleepovers. This led to R.L. Stein and then Stephen King. At some point I decided I didn’t like getting scared or scaring others. I found my voice again with fantasy and science fiction. You can have the dark imaginative evil bad guys with the hopeful underdog good guys. Plus I really like building up to an ending instead of a frightening shocker. I’m doing science fiction now but I have a fantasy story lined up soon.

  • My Luck Changed on Nov. 14, 2011

    It's good. I can feel the writer's pain. My critique is that it needs to be cleaned up a little, different word usage/tense. All in all, nice work. I don't even like poems that much.
