A writer with a lyrical and satirical voice, Jason Thornberry is able to frame the human experience within the wider context of culture and power, hypocrisy and absurdity.
His work has appeared in the Adirondack Review, The Stranger, Orange County Weekly, Central Circuit Magazine, The Coast Report, URB Magazine, Skratch, The Blacklist, Mean Street, American Music Press and more than thirty online magazines.
Jason is the survivor of a traumatic brain injury. In 1999, he was assaulted by two strangers. This life-changing injury ended Jason’s quest to become a professional musician—a passion that he pursued for a dozen years.
After a year in a wheelchair and more than two years of physical, occupational and speech therapies, Jason set out to document his experiences in music and recovery, resulting in a completed memoir.
Jason received a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Seattle Pacific University in 2017.
Having finished his first novel, he is currently at work on short fiction.
Jason lives in Seattle with his wife.
