Jarrod D. King | LGBT Fantasy Author

Jarrod D. King is an author of fantasy and sci-fi with a literary twist. He loves mixing deep characterization with extravagant stories and seeks to bring a new voice to the world. He writes fiction featuring LGBT characters of color. As a black, gay man he recognizes the need for inclusion and diversity in all forms of entertainment including literature.

J-rod, or J-roq, as he is sometimes called, has had a love for writing ever since his days in elementary school. He used to watch Scooby-Doo religiously and once copied the formula to write his first short story. At 12 years of age, his love of video games led him to complete a full script for a game. Finally, his unsuccessful first attempt at crafting an epic for a high school English class served as the seed of inspiration. Now, ten years later, he has completed his first fantasy novel, Pangaea: Unsettled Land.
