Hi I’m JP Rindfleisch IX, author of the LGBT Cozy Suburban Fantasy called Mandrake Manor, author of the nonfiction writing book Story Hypothesis, co-author to a Paranormal Humor serial called NRDS: National Recently Deceased Services with Jeff Elkins, co-author to a massive Dark Urban Fantasy project called the Leah Ackerman series with A.B. Cohen, and author to a collection of short stories in varying genres.
I’m also a co-host of the Writer’s Ink where we talk with authors about their experiences in the publishing world. I’ve previously been a co-host of Write Away Podcast with author Crys Cain and the Serial Fiction Show with Christine Daigle where we talked with serial fiction authors on their stories and craft.
I’m based in Rockford, Illinois, and I run a local writing group called Rockford Area Writers, which seeks to connect and uplift local writers within our community by working together to improve craft and publicize and support all events where writers present their works to the public. We currently have 60 members and an Anthology forthcoming.
