J. C. Geiger has eaten the beating heart of a snake, been deported from a full-moon party, and spent a short time locked in a Bolivian prison. He also writes fiction. His short works have appeared in the pages of Murky Depths and Horror Garage, and on stage at The Second City in Chicago. His debut novel WILDMAN, earned the Kirkus Star, was named as a Top YA Book of 2017 by Amazon editors and featured by Banks Street as one of The Best Children’s Books of the Year. His next novel from Disney-Hyperion is slated for 2019.
Special note to writers and readers: J.C. Geiger’s life sounds pretty darn catchy when all of his accomplishments are neatly summarized in one paragraph. It is important to note: It took J.C. a long, long time to sell his first book. Sure, prisons and full-moon parties were involved. But mostly basements. Small rooms. Too much coffee. Sunless days, head in his hands wondering: Will this ever happen for me???
In addition to writing, J.C. is the Artistic Director of No Shame Eugene Theatre, a 2018 Moth GrandSLAM champion, and the proud owner of a legendary 1968 Gerstenslager bookmobile. To be included in updates, ill-advised exploits, and cross-country adventures, embark here.
