Hi, I’m Jesse. I write books and stuff.
Is that not enough? All right, here is a little bit more about me. I’m a recent high school graduate in Oklahoma, a Christian, an athlete, and an author! I attend the University of Tulsa! I write all the time, be it poetry, short stories, novels, or even song lyrics (but I don’t sing!). I want to be a man of many hats so I’m always trying to learn something new. Ben Franklin once said, “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” My goal is to do both.
This website, however, is dedicated primarily to my writing, so here is a little information about it. At age 16 I finished the novel manuscript that would become my first book, Creepers, and I signed the publishing contract for the book around Christmas of my junior year of high school. The book released in September of 2014, and since then I have been very blessed to see it take off. The book is available for purchase here: https://www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore/book.php?w=978-1-63185-358-6.
One of the best things that has come from my book is the opportunities that have emerged that allow me to share my writing experience with others. I travel to schools and share my story with students, encouraging them to write and offering advice and ideas about getting started with the process. Writing is as powerful of a tool as one will ever come into contact with in the course of life, and that is why it is so important to embrace writing instead of being intimidated by it.
I enjoy talking to fans and I am very open to answering questions, so please feel free to contact me about anything! Enjoy exploring my website.
