Jeff Minerd thought he
stopped writing fiction a long time ago until the story for The
Sailweaver's Son came to him not in a dream, but after a dream.He
is grateful for that, and for the opportunity to explore the world of
Etherium and entertain others with what he finds there.
Jeff has a son, Noah, who is also a
writer and avid reader. Jeff hopes to one day place in the top ten -
or maybe even top 5 - of Noah's favorite authors. But the competition
is pretty stiff.
In a previous lifetime, Jeff published
short fiction in literary journals, where one of his stories won the
F. Scott Fitzgerald short story contest, judged by novelist and NPR
book reviewer Alan Cheuse.
More recently, Jeff has worked as a
science and medical writer for publications and organizations
including the National Institutes of Health, MedPage Today, The
Futurist Magazine, and the Scientist Magazine.
Jeff lives in Rochester, NY.
