Author Jeremiah Kleckner has taught English/Language Arts in Perth Amboy since 2005. During that time, he earned the Samuel E. Shull Middle School's 2014/2015 Teacher of the Year award and published several books. His highly-successful dark fantasy prequel, CAPTAIN JAMES HOOK AND THE CURSE OF PETER PAN, was co-written in 2012 with his longtime friend Jeremy Marshall and is available in digital, print, and audio formats. That book's sequel, CAPTAIN JAMES HOOK AND THE SIEGE OF NEVERLAND, was published two years later in 2014. The third book in the trilogy is slated for release in 2018. Jeremiah's ongoing TOME OF TESTAMENTS series, starting with ADVERSARY, BEAST, and CREATURE, is a Lovecraftian dark urban cult fantasy set in modern-day Jersey City and Hoboken. FORCE, a superhero fantasy, and WATCHING FROM BEHIND GLASS EYES, a collection of short horror stories featuring a possessed doll, are available for free online if you want to give his writing a test drive. Jeremiah lives and laughs in Jersey City with his wife, daughter, two dogs, and one cat.

"In the most devious manner, McLaughlin's stories achieve a high degree of demonism by perpetuating a sinister 'humor' at the gallows of the human comedy."
- Author Thomas Ligotti
Um contador de histórias, um bardo sempre aprendendo novos caminhos e novas canções.
Uma mente fragmentada, mundos em estilhaços, o poder da criação. A força que estrutura, a mente que molda o poder da palavra e o coração de um aventureiro. Que a jornada comece, e que muitos sejam os amigos a caminhar ao meu lado por todos os mundos fantásticos que em nós habitam!
Sundays are my Wattpad days, so watch for story updates then.
Recommended books for writers (of all ages):
"Several short sentences about writing" by Verlyn Klinkenborg.
"The Elements of Style" by Strunk and White.
Writers, always remember, you have access to the all the same words as [Insert Your Favorite Author Here] does.
When you make something (ex: writing) part of your daily routine, then there is never the question of 'How will I find the time?' You just do it. Like brushing your teeth or eating lunch.

Thank you for visiting my profile. We are all here for a good story and I aim to please. I discovered the joy of writing in the first year of University, attended a number of courses and classes and ran a fantasy club on Deviantart. Life however, loves to throw curveballs and sadly, I did not pick up the pen for many years...
Till now. A mutual friend of mine told me he wrote here on Wattpad and that he was writing a horror version of a fairy tale. Who knew the embers of writing were still there. Who knew that such a chance meeting would see me seriously consider spilling my thoughts out on blank space?
In any case, I hope you enjoy what I have to offer.
