JL Stratton has always been a storyteller, although most folks just call it "spinning a tale" or "lying." He began writing in earnest in junior high school when a creative writing teacher gave him a "C" grade on a piece of speculative fiction, calling it "blasphemy." From that point on, JL saw continued remarks about his writing such as "weird" and "writing for the mind" only as fuel for his writing fire.
Although born and raised in the Northwest of the United States, he now resides in the Southeast, having been deposited there through Uncle Sam's relocation program, otherwise known as military service.
JL enjoys writing across genres, having written or currently working on mystery, crime, science fiction, speculative fiction, paranormal, and fantasy. JL writes paranormal romance and erotica under a pen name.
