About Jake:

I’m a Bram Stoker Award nominated-novelist, award-winning novelist, short story writer, independent screenwriter, podcaster, audiobook narrator/producer, and inventor of the Drabble Novel. I have over a decade of experience as a professional writer/creator beginning with the podcasting of my first novel, DEAD MECH, back in 2007-2008.

I’m a co-host of the Asheville/WNC Writers Coffeehouse going on three years now (on hiatus due to COVID, unfortunately), helping mentor and advise new writers on the business of writing and publishing. Got a question about publishing and/or professional writing? Hit me up! I’m always here to help!

I’ve entertained thousands and reached audiences of all ages with my uncanny ability to write a wide range of characters and genres. I’m the author of 60+ novels including the bestselling Z-Burbia series set in Asheville, NC, the bestselling Salvage Merc One, the bestselling ROAK series, the Apex Trilogy (DEAD MECH, The Americans, Metal and Ash) and the Mega series for Severed Press, as well as the YA zombie novel, Little Dead Man, the Bram Stoker Award-nominated Teen horror novel, Intentional Haunting, the middle grade scifi/horror ScareScapes series, and the Reign of Four series, which I call “medieval space fiction”, for Permuted Press. I also published Stone Cold BastardsBlack Box Inc., and Blood Ghast Blues with Bell Bridge Books.

And so much more is on the way!
