J.L. Jurkiewicz began writing as a child, inspired by writers like J.R.R. Tolkien and Brian Jacques. In high school, his interest in writing was sparked again by a creative writing assignment that ended with him writing a novel-length story. He looks for inspiration in everyday things, little ideas from scraps of conversation, or movies and books.
In his spare time, he likes to play strategy games on his computer and roleplay with friends online. He’s also obsessed with the apps on his smart phone and has a dog who likes nothing more than to eat all the paper in the house when he isn’t looking (and sometimes when he is, just for laughs). He currently lives in Pennsylvania, where he spends a fair amount of time grumbling about the snow.
