had an early interest in storytelling.
A child of sunny Santa Barbara, California,
he loved playing pretend growing up,
swinging a sword around
and facing his darkest fears
He loved getting lost in the worlds
of books, movies, and video games,
finding his true calling in writing.
after moving to Austin, Texas,
he began the first chapter of a new book
on independence day.
Seventeen at the time,
he wanted to tell a story
about a young man and woman
questioning their world
and trying to find their own independence.
Jack remained in the
lone star state
for several years,
working on sequels and editing
until he completed drafts for a trilogy.
He now lives with his wife in Washington,
where they work together on the series.
ten years to the day
after starting that first chapter,
he at last presents
The Royal Green.
