Jeremy Larson studied creative writing and English at Bob Jones University, later earning his Ph.D. in English from Baylor University. He has taught English for more than a decade at various secondary schools, colleges, and universities—including Regent University where he is an assistant professor. His favorite literary work is John Milton’s Paradise Lost, and he enjoys the contemporary work (mostly YA fantasy) of N. D. Wilson. He lives in Virginia Beach and is a proud girl dad. He played trumpet and soccer for many years (though not at the same time), and continues to play when possible with enthusiastic mediocrity.
