Jason Spitz


Would you believe I've been writing since elementary school? My best friend at the time came into elementary school wanting to be a journalist. She and I used to write fake news stories about a fictional town. That was introduction to writing about thirty years ago.

I grew up wanting to be a writer. I've always known that that was what I wanted, yet I never seriously pursued it. I went to college to study chemistry, ended up with a degree in philosophy, worked some dead-end jobs, then became a software developer. I spent my adult life doing everything except becoming an author.

Now here I am, finally giving it an honest try. Better late than never.
