Hello. My name is Jesse Lynn Rucilez, and I'm a writer from Reno, Nevada. When I'm not working, my life revolves around literature, film, and music. Hopefully, one day my passions will be the core of my existence, rather than mere recreation.
People often ask me what I write. Unfortunately, my fiction doesn't fit into any specific genre. Thus far, I've written about everything from giant evil teddy bears, suicidal junkies, porn stars, and witchcraft, to living alien technology; all with a character driven, literary bent. From here on I plan to write futuristic thrillers, dystopian satire, space opera, fantasy, and superhero novels. I like to blend genres, so everything will have a touch of humor, romance, and action.
Whatever it takes to tell the best story I can.
Be warned, however, that my writing is ferocious. I won't ever massage your brain. My intent is always to grab you by the throat and not let go until you've read the last line. I want to make you laugh. Make you cry. Make you love. Make you hate. Make you envy. Make you pity. Make you angry. Make you morose. I want to entertain, of course, but, most of all, I want to make you think.
That's the power of good writing.
And if you choose to read my stories, I'll be eternally grateful...but I will ask one favor: Please pay attention. Don't just let your eyes skim over the words; be attentive to context and subtext, to character and motivation, theme and style. Delve deep into my world and meet me halfway, and in return I'll promise you this:
Whether you like my writing or not, I'll never bore you.
Thanks for reading.
