Jordan Dumer

Biography

I'm a creative soul who lives and breathes fiction writing. I love great storytelling regardless of style and genre, but always find myself leaning towards horror, mystery, comedy, fantasy and science fiction.

Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
I don't really have a favorite of anything especially not when it comes to books. How can someone compare something like Shakespeare's Hamlet to Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer? But I can name the five books that have been the most influential to my own style: John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, Dashiel Hammet's The Maltese Falcon, JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 and George Orwell's 1984.

The reason for these works influence is not just subject matter but the way they present it in third person perspective.
What do you read for pleasure?
I usually don't read for pleasure but for ideas but my best ideas usually come from the places that provide the most pleasure. That's why I read non-fiction on the subjects I love. For fiction, I usually read classics or something that catches my eye. I usually don't care about the genre or the medium as long as it's good.
