Jed Oliver


Born and raised in the rural area outside a small midwestern city, I learned to treasure good books at an early age.

I have always had a strong urge to create, occasionally dabbling in the arts and music. My true love, however, is writing, and I am seldom happier than when writing for the enjoyment of others.

When people comment that writing a book must be a very difficult task, I must respond that
I don't consider writing to be a task at all. For me, it is a genuine joy. I sincerely attempt to allow this to show through in my writing.

My writing goals? I think perhaps, if the reader can close the book at its end with a smile on their face, my writing has been successful. I'm sure many of us can benefit from a bit of extra cheer in our days. If my writing encourages that, I feel I have succeeded.

I write to produce sheer, light hearted entertainment.

With my very best wishes, Jed Oliver

P.S Please check my web site. From time to time I include audio excerpts from my books. Enjoy!

If you like old fashioned,heart-warming, slapstick comedy, join the fun! Knut had always wanted to be a Policeman or Fireman, but he was three inches too short for regulations. Now he has decided to form his own one-man law enforcement agency.This is small-town chuckles at its best. For sheer light hearted entertainment, “Knut” is hard to beat!
