Tell me about yourself, Jesse.I'm a man obsessed with fantasy. I think about it constantly. I'm almost always working on a book. I don't run out of ideas. Writing is all I want to do, and I enjoy doing it. I have a wife and two kids. I've got a writing partner. Her name is Sadie. She's a Rottweiler, and she's with me for every word I type. With my work, I'm trying to make sense of my troubled past, and trying to teach myself how to be an honorable man who can raise two productive and brilliant children. Every one of my novels is searching for something. I can only hope that by the time I'm done, I've found it.

Can Mandrake
overcome such terrible foes to defend those he loves?
What are you working on now?Right now, I'm finishing the third book of a trilogy called The Manhunters. It tells the story of an elite group hunting down a mass of escaped criminals. It has been a whirlwind ride of action and emotion, and I am looking to begin publishing this series in October of 2018.
Where is your favorite place to be when you write?I pretty much exclusively stick to my office when I write. It's filled with images of monsters and angels. The entire room has been streamlined for work and creativity. I write on an ancient Army desk that holds up a state-of-the-art computer.
What is your favorite Website?I'd like to say my favorite website is something hip and revolutionary. I'd like to say it's a research site with a powerful search engine that I use to hunt for nuggets of truth I can suffuse into my stories. But basically, most of my time browsing the internet is spent on YouTube, listening to music that inspires me or gives me an escape, and watching weird videos of people falling down.
