About The Author

When Jeff retired from his career as a trial lawyer he challenged himself to write a novel. So he did, and three months after First Second Coming was published, it received a Gold Award for writing excellence from Literary Titan magazine. A few months later the novel was nominated for the 2021 RONE Award in fantasy. What was a challenge became a new career. Jeff is now working on a sequel and a spin-off novel even though doing that keeps him off the golf course.
