Jeremy Morong


Jeremy Morong is one of those people that read book series like Harry Potter and Narnia and said "That's easy! I can do that!" After ten years and a lot of stops and starts, he learned it wasn't even close to easy - but it was fun. On The Backs of Dragons is his first novel; if his wife, Abby, has a say, it will be his last. He lives in Omaha, Nebraska with her and their daughter Madelyn.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is getting an idea and bringing it to life. I often don't even know where these ideas come from - they seem to materialize from thin air, and I'm just a conduit to put them on a page.

And I won't lie - I love when people genuinely tell me they enjoyed my book. I'm sure some people are just being polite, but there are times when you know you've actually achieved your goal of writing something that people enjoy, and enjoyed the same way you've enjoyed books throughout your life.
What are you working on next?
Right now I'm working on another adventure story called "Adventures of Braxton Revere." It's about a guy that was born into a vampire-hunting family in the late 19th century, but there's just one problem - his family has been so successful with their life's mission that nobody believes that vampires and such even exist. So he's a pariah, a joke, and he's on his own when vampires begin to return. It stems from my love of playing the old CastleVania games on the NES and watching the Universal Horror classics with my brother growing up.

After that I'd like to try my hand at a more modern story, set in our world, and then I plan on writing sequels to "On the Backs of Dragons". I think that's enough on my plate for now! Hopefully my wife doesn't see this; she's suffered enough. I've been trying to pace myself better after obsessing over my first novel attempt.
