The forests of Northern Michigan were an ideal setting for Jeff Pryor’s childhood. He developed a love and respect of nature at an early age, before moving to the more populated metro Detroit area in his teens. Spending formative years in both urban and rural environments contributes strongly to his stories.
Jeff began telling stories as a young child. Reading and writing were early passions, but Dungeons and Dragons was what eventually led him to fantasy. Many years of telling his stories around the gaming table eventually stirred his writing passion. ‘Chosen of Trees and of Talons’ was published in 2016, followed by his first poetry collection, ‘Whispers of a Broken World’, the following year. ‘Strings of Chance’ begins a new story, with many still to come.
Jeff still lives in Michigan, the place where people point at their hand to show where they’re from. He lives with his adult (whether she wants to admit it or not) daughter and a jerk of a cat named Tarot. Northern Michigan is a second home, with the call of the forest always in Jeff’s ear...and his stories.
