Jacob Lindaman

Biography

When I was younger I hated reading. It wasn't until I grew up that I realized there is a world of literature out there I hadn't been exposed to. I write stories that I enjoy reading. Most of them are short stories, but I have written two novels. The thing that makes my stories so much better than the literature I was forced to read as a child is that I try to write fiction from a fresh perspective.

Fiction From a Fresh Perspective is something I strive to incorporate into all of my works. The fresh perspective part means that in all I do I do with Christ in mind. I like to write about far away worlds and plasma bazookas that blow up mechanical armies and stories set in video game themes. How does this relate to Christ? Ah, dear reader, that is the challenge I accept. And you will have to read to find out.
