About the Author

Born in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jason Graff has been writing since he was fourteen years old. In high school, his passion for the written word was well and truly ignited when he took a sucker punch for writing his crush a poem. He would go on to earn his bachelor's degree at Bowling Green State University and later, his MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College. The intense nature of that program allowed him to be mentored by a diverse group of talented writers which included: Sarah Schulman, Richard Panek, Darcey Steinke, and Rachel Pollack. He loves both reading and producing writing that has a strong, clear voice and conveys a deep connection to the characters. He has published fiction, poetry, and essays widely in journals around the world. His poem "Your Problem With Containers" from The inaugural issue of The Great American Literary Magazine was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. His subject areas range from Darth Vader to conjoined twins to the death of language. Jason Graff currently lives in Little Falls, New Jersey with his wife, son, and their cat. He is currently working on a science fiction novel about the beginning of the end of the universe. You can follow him on Twitter at @JasonGraff1 or find his author page on Facebook.
