Jarod K. Anderson is a fan of comic books, tattoos, pulp detective novels, herpetology, folklore, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, video games, and all things scifi, fantasy, and horror. Growing up, he wanted to be either a ninja or a maple tree. These aspirations led him to teach college English. Teaching college English led him to try other things. Jarod’s work has appeared in numerous online and print publications including Daily Science Fiction, Escape Pod, Electric Spec, Fictionvale, The Colored Lens, Fantasy Scroll, and elsewhere. His work is forthcoming in Midnight Echo and Shroud Magazine. His bestselling books of speculative fiction writing prompts (co-written with his wife Leslie J. Anderson) include: Inklings: 300 Starts, Plots, and Challenges to Inspire Your Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy, and 100 Prompts for Science Fiction Writers.
