“I try to create stories that take you somewhere you’ve never been before; stories that leave a lasting impression and make you think differently about yourself and our world.” – Jeff
I was a very reluctant reader when I was young, so I write books to be as compelling and cinematic as the best films and video games, to turn reluctant readers into lifelong ones.
