Jason is also the survivor of a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic epilepsy—a life-changing experience that abruptly terminated his quest to become a professional musician. One evening, in the summer of 1999, as his band was about to release their debut album and begin touring, a pair of strangers beat Jason into a coma and left him for dead. When he awoke, he could not walk or speak. Jason spent a year in a wheelchair before going back to school.

Jason earned a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Seattle Pacific University and an MFA in Creative Writing from Chapman University. He lives with his wife and dog in Seattle—and he’s hard at work on his first novel.



  1. Hi

    I have a question regarding your book I believe I should not post in public. Could you please send me an email so I can ask away?
