For many years a software programmer and trainer, J.J. Macke (mac – ee) has been writing for nearly all of his life in various capacities, with copywriting and short story composition being just two of his earliest attempts. He has completed many works of both fiction and non-fiction and loves nothing more than to spin a good yarn now and again. He grew up at the seashore in a small beach town in a large family and uses this environment for reference in many of his tales.

When he is not writing fiction, J.J. is busy writing technical documents and designing websites.

He currently lives in Southern California with his wife and 2 children and enjoys walks on the beach with his family and working with underprivileged children in the inner city through his efforts at community building with other local members of the Baha’i Faith.
