Jason L Tarlton


I started writing while i was offshore working on a seismic ship, and wrote my first installment of "Apocalypse: Texas style!" as a way to keep from going stark raving mad while away from home for 30 days at a time. My wonderful wife Judi talked me into trying to get it out and seeing what happens. I have to say, I have been very pleased with the response and am working on a second installment of post apocalyptic adventure! I keep myself busy working, writing, raising three kiddos :Jacob- 5, Drew-12 and Sarah-17(sheesh! keep me in your prayers!) and performing around my end of Texas with my band the "Unsweet Ts" -(myself, bass playing wife Judi, drummer Morris "Coach" Kuhrt and face melting lead guitarist Dr. Brian Miller).Life is good folks!

I'm one of those horrible morning people, jump out of bed when the alarm goes off, no snooze. My wife and kiddos inspire and support me in everything I do, so if that's the answer you were fishing for, ...
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I work as a pipeline controller, so I work about 14 days per month, alternating night and day, 12 hour shifts. My wife and I have a band, "The Unsweet Ts", playing blues, classic rock and country all over the Permian Basin of West Texas. We also enjoy camping and hunting. Definitely a busy, fun time!
