Jon Messenger has been a storyteller from a young age. When he was ten, his older brother introduced him to something that would change his life forever: Dungeons & Dragons. Years of living in a world of imagination made the transition to author easy.
Today, Jon serves as a United States Army Officer in the Medical Service Corps. Since graduating from the University of Southern California in 2002, writing speculative fiction has remained his passion, a passion that has continued through multiple combat and humanitarian deployments. He has written 12 novels and is currently working on an ongoing steampunk series, Magic & Machinery. His steampunk world is the inspiration for the D&D 5e modules being debuted at Gary Con. These days, he lives in San Antonio with a wife far smarter than him and two little boys that are half Scottish and half a-holes.
