About the Author
J. Kilburn is the author of three self-published novels, as well as one feature-length investigative newspaper article published in his community's local newspaper. Reviewers have compared Kilburn's narrative style to those of Hunter S. Thompson and Nell Zink. His subjects and almost cinematic descriptions of setting have earned his works comparison to movies and television shows like Sons of Anarchy, Tin Star and Twin Peaks.Kilburn lives a quiet and private life on the shore of America's sixth Great Lake. He has lived and worked in Vermont, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Minnesota. During these travels, Kilburn has dabbled in law enforcement, private security, emergency medicine, truck driving, and horse-logging. Other occupations have included at-risk youth mentor, big-city process server, park ranger, industrial wastewater treatment operator, and plastics processing machinery mechanic. Along the way, he's pedaled to 14,000 feet above sea-level in a major bicycle race, been marooned overnight on a deserted island, ridden a motorcycle from Chicago to Thunder Bay, and hiked Vermont's highest peaks to watch sunsets on both the longest and coldest days of the year. When not at work he and his wife enjoy life around a little urban farm complete with greenhouse, garden, and mini-barn. Their current flock is composed of four chickens and a cat named Sierra Feral.
