Jared, tell us where you were born?
Salt Lake City
Getting the word out about my book.
Amen to that. Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?
My father. He kept a library of books at my house. I consumed them. I probably shouldn’t have read some of the books when I did. For example, I read Rambo First Blood Part II in fifth grade. I think I read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings first, though.
