Jon Eekhoff is an award-winning author (if second and third place count in the annual Tidepools magazine contest, or if the Fiction Writer of the Year from Lemoore High School in 1983 can be included as “award-winning”). He spends most of his time writing fiction which he’d let you read if you were an agent with a million dollar offer. He has completed three novels which are waiting to be discovered while they sit on his hard drive, or in the cloud…whatever that is. Novel #1: The writers and authors of 1920’s Paris play baseball. Novel #2: An obsessed basketball coach kidnaps his college basketball team and takes them on a strange road trip in an attempt to get 700 wins. Novel #3: Jon spends five months with his son in the hospital as his son undergoes treatment for cancer. (That one is mostly true.) He is working on 20 interconnected short stories set around the California Missions.
Jon’s blog is a mess and that’s how he likes it. His non-fiction is primarily to entertain his four readers and keep his mind agile. He likes to travel, do stupid things, eat odd foods, drink beer, suck the marrow out of life, and pay for health club memberships he doesn’t use.
