J.R. White

J.R. WHITE has been a sailor, scientist, and professional cage-fighter. As a merchant sailor he crossed the Arctic Circle, passed through the Straits of Gibraltar, witnessed sea monsters, and participated in a helicopter rescue atop the tallest cliff in Scandinavia. He has worked as a research scientist studying gene therapy for two major universities and spent four years as a professional mixed martial artist. As a civilian contractor he spent three years at Fort Leavenworth, KS, where he taught hand-to-hand combat to personnel from every branch of the military and over ten allied nations. A father, adventurer, and military spouse, White and his family have lived in eight states from coast to coast in their nomadic journey as an Army family. Shadow of Wolves is his debut novel. "I like to do things a bit differently around here, mixing genres, bending rules and exploring themes in the pursuit of one grand goal – your entertainment. That’s the point, you see. That’s why I write, and why reading remains my first love. Growing up, reading was an instant doorway to adventure and a conduit to fresh ideas and strange minds. It was reading that turned rainy afternoons into wild wanderings and dark nights into shadowy misadventures. Later, the embers fanned by my reading grew into real adventures in the physical world. Voyages at sea across the Atlantic, through the Straits of Gibraltar and North of the Arctic Circle. Hikes atop the jagged cliffs of Scandinavia and among the gnarled saguaros of Arizona. Fighting in a chain-link cage before a roaring crowd. The raw power of the written word started all of that. I want you to rediscover the joy of reading for reading’s sake. Reading as adventure and exploration, as a journey into created worlds and reimagined history, uncorrupted by the stiff interpretations of stodgy English teachers and other guardians of literary pretention. Sure, we may stumble into the odd rumination on the nature of life and this shared human experience – no one’s perfect, after all, not me and certainly not my characters – but we’re still striving to fulfill one mission. To entertain. Sometimes to frighten or sadden, to exhilarate or amuse – to enthrall. But above all else, I want you to have fun." J.R. White, Storyteller at Large.
