She's joined the crew of the adventure schooner Orion, a ship of scientific geniuses bent on discovering the deepest truths of reality.

Will Jenn find what she's looking for? Or will the madness of a few turn her world upside down?

Solve the World
Part Three

The world is broken. Can we unbreak it?

Jennifer Dash is hunting for a way to fix the world, and herself. From Fox-masks, to secret orphan bunkers, to a New Zealand skyscraper culling, to a ravenous Wendigo, this third part of Jenn's harrowing adventure takes her past the boundaries of science, and straight into the dragon's lair of mythological nightmares. Can Jenn solve the world before Leviathan awakes?

Continue the Journey.
Beware the Pied Piper.

Dante has lived in multiple places. In each of those places, he has read to his dog. She doesn't seem to mind, but Dante is suspicious that she's not actually very interested in what he has to say. You have to understand, Dante's dog can't read. So he has to read aloud to her. He hopes that you can read for yourself, and that maybe you'll read the things that he's read aloud to his dog. Maybe you'll be more interested in the things Dante has written and read aloud than the dog is.

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote a story about blowing a bubblegum bubble so big that it enveloped me and I got lost inside. I don't remember much about the story besides my final line -- the classic, "Goodbye, cruel world." Even as a little fella I liked my stories dark.

When did you first start writing?
I was in third grade when I first recall enjoying handwriting little stories.

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first book I read cover to cover was "Dear Mr. Henshaw" by Beverly Cleary. The novel is entirely letters from a young boy. I was in third grade, and absolutely riveted by the style. I'm not sure if I even cared about the storyline -- this lady wrote a whole story just through letters! It was incredible. Mind blowing. How could this be? Reading that book was my first hint that there are no limits to what a book can be.

What's the story behind your non-fiction book, “Fun with the Apocrypha”?
I wanted to know more about the books that didn't make it into the Bible. Once I grappled with the menagerie that is the pseudepigrapha and gnostic and apocryphal writings, I quickly learned that I had to limit the scope of my endeavor. So for now, I'm focused on the Apocrypha. If all goes well, there will be various "sequels" exploring other forgotten ancient texts coming down the pipeline. Additionally, I wanted to flex my comical muscles. Generally, I write darker tomes devoid of humor. In that regard, this project was a stretch for me to try to elucidate as many jokes out of myself as possible.
