J.A. Bender was born and raised in the rugged New England countryside, surviving the dangers of suburban living.  While he’s spent time living in upstate New York, Scotland, China, Boston, DC, and the Pacific NW, his home will forever be in the nearest coffee shop.

His latest novel, The Shadows At Their Feet, is about art, perseverance, doppelgangers, ghosts, blue roses, tarot cards, and love.
