About Jake Bible
Born Jacob David Bible pre-Microsoft in Bellevue, WA, Jake was whisked away to the Beaver State when he was three and raised fundamentalist pagan. Fed a steady diet of Doritos, Fritos Bean Dip and Chinese herbal tonics, Jake had so many vivid hallucinations that he was writing and binding his own books by fifth grade. True story.
He grew up fascinated with the speculative and the macabre. He spent many summers on his grandparent’s lake reading a leather bound, Franklin Library Edition of The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe. No, it wasn’t a haunted book. And, no, it wasn’t a haunted lake. Yes, his grandparents were actually re-animated corpses that had been accidentally murdered and then raised from the dead when a cocktail party got just a little out of hand. And they drank gin and tonics. True story.
A Bram Stoker Award nominated-novelist, short story writer, independent screenwriter, podcaster, and inventor of the Drabble Novel, Jake entertains thousands with his horror, sci/fi, thriller, and adventure tales. Jake reaches audiences of all ages with his uncanny ability to write a wide range of characters and genres, from zombies to SpecOps, space opera to YA horror. Humor, horror, action and adventure, Jake writes it all.
Jake is the author of over sixty published novels including the bestselling Z-Burbia series, the bestselling Salvage Merc One, the bestselling Roak: Galactic Bounty Hunter series, the fan favorite hit Team Grendel/Mega series, and his original post-apocalyptic mech/zombie mash-up, the Apex Trilogy, all for Severed Press. His other novels include the YA zombie novel, Little Dead Man, the Bram Stoker Award nominated YA horror novel, Intentional Haunting, the middle grade scifi/horror series, ScareScapes, and the historical fiction/space opera mash-up series, Reign of Four, for Permuted Press, as well as Stone Cold Bastards and the Black Box Inc. series for Bell Bridge Books.
Jake built a large and loyal following early on by podcasting his first novel, DEAD MECH, for free in 2009, garnering over 1,000,000 downloads. Jake’s readership is in the tens of thousands, growing everyday with his activity on Substack where he releases a free drabble each Friday.
Jake currently lives in Asheville, NC with his wife (while his two kids enjoy the college life). While Jake loves the mix of the eclectic attitude of the area and good ol’ Southern hospitality, he really wishes the tourists would just go away. True story…
