Jason M. Hough (pronounced 'Huff') is a former 3D Artist and Game Designer (Metal Fatigue, Aliens vs. Predator: Extinction, and many others). Writing fiction became a hobby for him in 2007 and quickly turned into an obsession. He started writing THE DARWIN ELEVATOR in 2008 as a Nanowrimo project, and kept refining the manuscript until 2011 when it sold to Del Rey along with a contract for two sequels. The book released on July 30th in the US and reached the New York Times Bestseller list the following week.
The trilogy, collectively called THE DIRE EARTH CYCLE, was released in the summer of 2013. Jason's next book, currently untitled, is tentatively scheduled for release in early 2015.
He lives near Seattle, Washington with his wife and two young sons.
