So who is this Jordon Quattlebaum fellow anyway?
Well, I suppose it depends on who you ask. Here are the facts. I’m a father of two beautiful little girls, and the husband of a beautiful woman.
I’ve done my fair share of traveling the world (though I’d like to do more) thanks to my former career as an elementary school teacher. Sounds glamorous, right?
I started writing when I was around 13 years old, but I didn’t really know I was writing. I was creating characters for a Dungeons and Dragons game my buddies and I were playing. For many years, that was the extent of my writing. I’d write characters. Eventually I graduated to being the Dungeon Master, and started actually writing the outline of the story, or missions, allowing the players to fill in the blanks. For those of you that have never played tabletop RPG’s, it’s sort of a communal storytelling experience, with dice to help you decide if you’ve succeeded or failed.
That’s how I’d like to envision my writing now. It’s nothing fancy. I’m the dungeon master, sitting at a table full of wonderful readers, cracking jokes, swigging copious amounts of Mountain Dew (Coca-Cola for me, thanks), and staying up way later than is reasonable. So please, pull up a chair. I’ve got a blank character sheet just for you. You’re a bit late to the game, so it looks like you’re stuck playing the healer. Sorry. Go grab a friend. There’s always room at the table for more.
