Jestin Lightner

Biography

I learned how to play guitar from the devil himself. I wrote short stories and songs throughout the years and most of my short stories were oriented around the planes because planescape was cool back in the nineties and spelljammer was old. I also wrote a five hundred page poetry book based on love and LSD trips back in the nineties. That was back while I was playing in a band called Hollow and plotting to take over the world with a religion based on my music. It was alot to ask for someone coming from a garage and a donut shop. Later on in life I was sitting in jail and was like, WTF, I can write better than this crap they are force feeding us in here and so I finally finished my first book. I now have a few titles to please my audience including original home brew Vampire The Masquerade adventures and a D&D supplement on top of The Battle For The Red Gates and EVN. Also if your interested I have prepared an ebook on the subject of writing your own ebook and it is perfect for the newb in us all.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Grew up in 954, Ft. Lauderdale area, for what seemed like forever. Always had role playing groups or bands to do my thing with and that has obviously inspired much of my stuff.
When did you first start writing?
In the sixth grade I read Cycle of the Werewolf by Stephen King and so I set out to write a short story for english class about werewolves that I entitled "Terror To All". I only got an A- because the language in it was not suitable for a school project. It was pretty OK for my age though as the teachers passed it around and all gave me a their own review of it.
