J.R. Vikse is a Canadian author and playwright, who, after years of creating stories using nothing but his imagination and superfluous piles of Lego, finally decided to try his hand at writing them down. Whether it works out or not is up to you. He was an early reader, since there wasn't ever much else to do during Canadian winters, but he didn't get into serious writing until his 20s. Jason wrote his first short story in 2008, and has pecked away at the keyboard ever since. He published his first book, The Lazy Postman, in May of 2012, and always has more projects on the go than he probably should.
When he isn't writing - which isn't often - he can be found onstage, where he employs other forms of story-telling as a director and actor, mostly in the genre of musical theatre. He has directed or performed in thirty-four productions in three countries over the past eighteen years.
He currently lives in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
