About The Author

Born during the revolution of art and culture, the 1970's offered many world changes. Technological advancements were key. Jeff grew up during the Vietnam exodus to the Washington D.C. area, providing a large pool of cultural difference and ideals. But life was not peachy keen, and Jeff struggled with inner turmoil, anger, and depression most of his life.

With a major influence in several teachers who took time to explore his writing capabilities, Jeff took up writing at the age of nine and continued to loosely pull his thoughts and ideas into stories he's crafted over the last forty years. Many of them will probably never see the light of day, as many more have been lost through his transient teens and young adult life. But many of the notions, ideas, and stories have survived in his head through those decades.

His desire to share unique and individual stories based on craftiness and unique humor will eventually be fully on display. But you have the chance to get into his mind for some of the stories he's crafted by buying his (currently) self-published books. Many will delight, some will reel, but the desire to live the storyteller life is strongly his desire.

Major writing influences: Ernest Hemingway, Charles Bukowski, Maya Angelou, Douglas Adams, William Shakespeare
