Jake is a YA writer, character artist, role-player, and avid gamer. His collection of finished novels is currently numbered at eight, all of which are in the sci-fi/horror genres. Throughout the years, he has written multiple short stories, and various screenplays.

(Official website: jakeastrife.com/ )

Jake was born in the ‘village’ of Bellaire, Ohio. As the population shrank, he knew he needed to get out or get caught in the trap of the average small town—if you don’t get out young, you don’t get out at all. So he moved to Southern California, and is there to stay.

The earliest influences on his writing were survival horror video games, and sci-fi/fantasy novels. It was the thrill of a good scare, and abilities above and beyond the scope of physics that drove his imagination.

For many years, Jake focused only on his artistic abilities and put writing aside. He eventually enrolled in an art school, but after taking a Story Writing course, he became serious about his work and eventually switched to Creative Writing at another university. He was twice published in the school’s magazine, The Aviator, for his works, Book of Fate and Omega Virus.

Currently enjoying the sunny weather of California, Jake spends most of his time with his fiancé, and is always writing, drawing, or gaming—and loving the abundance of amusement parks nearby.
