About Jason Blacker
Jason Blacker was born in Cape Town but spent most of his first 18 years in Johannesburg. His thirst for justice and peace for all humanity was formed in the African sun. He writes mystery fiction and literary fiction as well as poetry and daily haikus at his haiku blog.
When not writing he is either spending time with his wife and son or herding the 4 cats that rule the roost. Other than that, he enjoys squash, both the game and the vegetable and running. A healthy body allows for a healthy mind and a fertile creative soil from which the writing springs.
