P.J. Owen grew up among the tree-lined streets of upstate New York’s wine country. He split his childhood between schoolwork, exploring outdoors, reading the books of authors like Tolkien and Salinger, playing games like The Legend of Zelda, and devouring movies like The Goonies, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones.
As a teen he took to writing, short stories mostly, and song lyrics to perform with his largely unknown band. Later on, at the urging of his parents, P.J. studied business, and still operates two companies of his own.
At the ripe old age of thirty-five Owen made a decision to return to writing, and sat down to pen the story he had been playing in his mind all those years before, the stories that would eventually become the serialized middle-grade fantasy series, Seeking Daylight.
Owen continues to live in upstate New York, with his wife on their small horse farm, soaking in todays books, movies, and pop-culture. He can still be found exploring the outdoors and thinking up stories, if only for himself.
