J.G. Contor

Biography

Born and raised in Idaho, I constantly had access to the outdoors; hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, skiing, and summer water sports. After high school, I spent two years in Korea teaching English and proselytizing for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was exposed to an entirely different culture and learned the virtues of knowing the way others think. Shortly after returning from Korea, I enrolled in college in Hawaii on the island of O'ahu, and soon became exposed to more cultures from the pacific islands. College education focusing on English, Creative Writing, and Theatre gave me opportunities to dive into literature and enjoy the depth of writing and its potential. Hawaii became my first love and the one place where I always wanted to return to, should I find myself away. In Hawaii, I met my wife, and we were married in Kona. We lived and taught in Hawaii for two years, before moving to the mainland to escape high rent prices. We are now pursing more school and continuing to write and create new stories and worlds to put them in.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
In the future the human race has spread out into a half a dozen systems, and whether they intended it to be so or not, they have become the bullies in their region of space. This particular story, The Linchpin, is about a specific group of humanity that is invading worlds and what is done to stop them.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I sell independently to hopefully sell enough books so that I can say I've sold books on my pitch to a literary agent.
