Born and raised among the rolling cornfields of Iowa, Jed Quinn spends his days as a professor of history, volunteering as a school board member, keeping up with his five thoroughly enjoyable and oftentimes punctual children, caring for his charming yet demanding shi-tzu Benji, and stepping into random wardrobes trying to find his way into Narnia. He has traveled the globe extensively in search of wild adventures, ideas for his books, and exotic and frightening things to eat. Oh, and he’ll totally crush you at Chutes and Ladders, so bring it!
Quinn is the author of Orchard, a YA novel about a woman who awakens to learn she is part of a small band of vampires tasked with protecting our world. The sequel, Cove, was released in 2016 and the third novel in the four book series, Violet, comes out summer 2018. He is also co-author, with Michael Koogler and Jaren Riley, of The Krypteia Conspiracy, a series about a secret organization attempting to hijack the end of times and overthrow God.
