About Jonathan

I have been a creative writer since I first learned how to tell a lie. And that's the truth. I hate being pigeon-holed into a genre, so I tend to hop around different styles both for creative purposes and to expand my range. I'm also an Oscar-junkie since I'll never win one. And have I mentioned my overwhelming optimism?

Unique traits: I've got a weird pit in my stomach that my wife teases me about. Does that count for anything?
