Jace Ridley is a writer, designer, transmedia artist, pirate captain, and part time anthropomorphic personification. He lives in the Philadelphia Suburbs with his son and their 2 feline overlords.
He’s a Storyteller. Anything else is just details…
Oh you wanted details? Okay then.
Raised by his single father from a very young age, he was quickly introduced to all things science fiction, fantasy, and everywhere in between. Drawing on inspiration from a lifetime of Star Trek, Star Wars, Dungeons and Dragons, Dune, and classic video games, he quickly moved into many current fandoms, taking up residence among the Whovians, the Supernatural Fans, the Potterheads and so so SO many others.
He’s also deeply tired of talking about himself in the third person. So let’s move on from that..
I love stories of all kinds. Some people play video games for the challenge, but by and large, I play for the stories. I read comics for the stories, not the art. Story, to me, is everything. I imbue everything I create with a personal backstory of some kind, and when it comes to my visual art, I like to present a scene that would suggest one.
To that end, I love world building and creating places for stories to take place.
I’ve been writing since a young age, but nothing that really amounted to much until I started sitting down and really trying to organize what I wanted into real outlines that made it easier to follow. I start with broad strokes and key details, and then I let the story tell itself. It’s produced some interesting twists and turns, which you will be able to read more about on my website in the coming months, if you are interested.
On my site, you’ll find free fiction, information about me, and whenever I release new material, you’ll find “extras” there, like special features on a DVD, about the worlds in question.
I hope you enjoy my work. I thank you for your patronage and the time you take to read it, and read this.
What I’m Reading…
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, which I’ve now read probably a half dozen times. One of my favorite novels.
What I’m Watching…
Shadowhunters based on the series of books by Cassandra Clare called “The Mortal Instruments.” So far, I’m digging it.
What I’m Playing…
Been playing a lot of OVERWATCH on PS4 lately, mixed with trying to start Watch Dogs 2 and Let It Die(among others.)
Still need to finish Final Fantasy XV.
