J. A. Partridge has been an editorial assistant for a regional newspaper, an accounting specialist in a variety of accounting fields, a special projects coordinator (whatever that is) and a web application developer/designer/stylist. Perhaps not too surprising for a biology major who somehow ended up with a BA in Philosophy and Religion.

He's also an award-winning poet, but he's promised to give that up.

He currently lives in south Texas with his wife and two kids and a hedgehog named Speppers where he does the web thing, designs and plays games and has finally acknowledged that continuing to fence épée will only get himself hurt. He is currently working on over a dozen short stories and novels simultaneously.
