Jake Nickens was born and raised in Southern Mississippi. He spent his childhood listening to family tall tales and reading comic books that turned him into the kind of adult who writes stories about jackalopes and vampire-librarians. He enjoys watching old boxing matches, reading mystery novels, and trying to make an edible gluten-free biscuit. He lives in Louisiana with his wife Lydia, and their Akita, Ceri. Jake Nickens is the creator of Jackalope Stories, a loosely connected series of Young Adult novels, the first of which is called The Thin House and is available now.
