About J.W. Alden

J.W. Alden has a fascination with the fantastic. As such, he's made speculative fiction his domain—though some other weird things sneak in from time to time.

He lives just outside West Palm Beach, Florida with his wife Allison, who doesn't mind the odd assortment of musical instruments and medieval weaponry that decorate his office (as long as he tries to brandish the former more often than the latter).

Alden is a First Place Writers of the Future winner, a graduate of the 2013 class of Odyssey Writing Workshop, and a member of Codex Writers and SFWA. Check out the "Published Fiction" tab to give some of his stuff a read.

The "J" stands for James.
