At thirteen years old, Jon R. Osborne discovered a passion for two things: writing and telling stories. Instead of doing what a normal author-to-be would do and write stories, Jon wrote for his school newspaper and told stories through the medium of running role-playing games for his friends.
Journalism helped pay the way through college, and gaming garnered him lifelong friends. After college, journalism didn't pan out as a career, but Jon continued creating worlds and forging stories with his friends.
Fast forward almost thirty years; Jon is still a gamer who every now and then dabbles with writing. A long-time friend and fellow gamer who had found success as an author, Mark Wandrey, convinced Jon to submit a short story for an anthology. Jon's story was accepted, and it gave him the impetus to finish his first novel, A Reluctant Druid.
Living in Indianapolis, Jon still games, and continues to write. You can find out more about Jon at jonrosborne.com. Fans who sign up for his mailing list will receive Chapter 0 for A Reluctant Druid and be the first to here news about Jon's newest books and stories.
