A longtime fan of science fiction and fantasy, Jeremy Varner has been writing speculative fiction for most of his life in one form or another. First introduced to the genre through his father, a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy from the days when that wasn’t very cool, some of his earliest memories formed around watching aliens, creatures of legend, and robots of all shapes and sizes. It wasn’t long before Jeremy wanted to create his own worlds and tell his own stories. From fan-fiction to original works that he dare not ever show the public, Jeremy’s childhood notebooks were littered with fantastic worlds inspired by the works of greats.
It was during a particularly rough time that Jeremy realized that he didn’t want to just dream anymore. After years of treating it as his secret, geeky hobby, Jeremy eventually decided to take his work professional and bring his own quirky brand of world building to the real world he was often escaping. Shards of Glass, originally released in 2011, was his debut novel and the first book of the Agent of Argyre series – a series he hopes will someday inspire someone else to take the same journey.
