Jeff was born and raised in Missouri. Almost from the day he could walk, he was hooked on all types of fiction. From Star Trek and Space 1999, to Conan the Barbarian.
For almost twenty years, Jeff thought about writing his own story. In July of 2012, he did just that. October 2012, Jeff published his short novel, Assassin's Retribution. What he found was that he had a love of writing that was stronger than he had first realized.
With copies of Assassin's Retribution downloaded in the U.S., U.K., and Germany, Jeff has since published two short stories, A Dead Run and Martyr. His next novel is also underway. The Valiant Incident will be available in early 2013. Also in 2013, he plans to release the second book i ... read more

I also loved books and before I even learned to read I would sit and pour over the books that had belonged to my mother. Works by writers such as Dante and Shakespeare filled the shelves.
