Hi there ~ I'm JC Andrijeski and I'm a writer of words and a dreamer of dreams, one with a (perhaps overly?) friendly appreciation for my own dark side, at least when it comes to my fiction writing. That being said, if you read my stuff, you'll discover pretty quick that, at base and in my heart, I'm a big, sappy, pie in the sky idealist, and always want the light to win, love to win, the good guys to win, compassion to win, the bad guys to be redeemed or at least to find love...even if they have to crawl through mud and blood and crazy sex and betrayal and broken fingernails to get there...
Here's the drier stuff about me: I've published novels, novellas, serials, graphic novels and short stories, including new adult fantasy series, Allie's War, new adult science fiction series, The Slave Girl Chronicles, and the Gateshifter series, about a shape-shifting alien and a tough-girl PI from Seattle. I also write nonfiction essays and articles as Jules Okapi, some erotica as Blue Daniels and some children's fiction as Hunter T. Castle. My short works have been featured in anthologies, online literary, art and fiction magazines as well as print venues such as NY Press and holistic health magazines. I work full time as a writer in Portland, OR.
