About the Author
I never wanted to be an author. I was certain I would become a creative director in advertising by the time I was thirty. But, fate played a heavy hand. Little did I know that while in college to accomplish my career goal, an English assignment would change my path forever. We had to write a short story using inspiration drawn from the movie title, “A River Runs Through It”. It was out of that story THE KING OF EGYPT was born. Then titled, “Rivers Part”, my professor handed it back with a note saying, “You should think about turning this into a novel.” That message played in my mind for ten years while I traveled, worked in interior design then TV production until I finally mustered the courage and decided ‘all or nothing.’ I quit working to pursue this dream of writing the novel. I was sure after I completed the book and self-published it for my own satisfaction that would be it - I wouldn’t be able to write more than that one book - after all, novel writing seems daunting. Though, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Story ideas have flooded in, filling the pages of notebooks, waiting for their turn to be developed into a novel or screenplay. Mostly, they have come to me in dreams during sleep though some sprout out of a daydream, which leaves me wondering, ‘Where did that come from?” I think if I lived to 100, I wouldn’t be able to write all the stories I want to tell. Looking back, although, I had never intended to take this path, I now realize there was no better path for me to take. Onwards & Upwards! J.J. Makins, author/writer (I like that).
