About

Jesse Teller lives in Missouri. He hasn’t always, but like storytelling, it snuck into his bones. Teller fell in love with fantasy when he played his first game of Dungeons & Dragons. The game gave him the ability to create stories and characters from a young age. He started consuming fantasy in every form and, by nine, was obsessed with the genre. As a young adult, he knew he wanted to make his life about fantasy. His books explore violent issues without flinching.

He lives with his wonderful, supportive wife and two inspiring kids.

What draws you to this genre?
Fantasy has been my life since I was five. It provides me with a lens through which to understand the darkness of this world. As a kid, I used it as a coping mechanism. As a man, it allows me to search for wisdom. Fantasy is a language I use to discuss themes like hope and despair.

Why do you write?
How could I not? Writing is a passion that gets in your blood. Like cars to a mechanic, or gospel to the Christian, writing seeps into your bones. Once its there, it never leaves. I write to keep my sanity. I write because I can’t stop.

Is there a message in your books that you want readers to grasp?
All my work is about hope. There are virtues in this world worth fighting for, things we can’t do without. I hope to inspire honor and vigilance. I hope to raise an awareness of innocence and its worth.
