Welcome to my website. I am Maquel A. Jacob. Since the age of seven, I have had a passion for the written word, reading everything I could get my grubby little hands on which included encyclopedias and the thesaurus. At twelve, I had my first encounter with a Stephen King novel (The Stand) and was hooked. After going through most of his titles the inspiration came to write my own brand of fiction. I decided to combine multiple genres to keep things interesting.
By injecting elements of gender duality in each story to fuel and steer the conversation of acceptance and diversity, my readers get to discover new ways of thinking. Many of my characters cannot be defined as one gender, or even one species. I feel, instead of trying to put everyone in their own tiny boxes, we should be thinking outside of them and learn to understand each other.
On a fun note, I am a HUGE Anime fan. My streaming device gets a work out every weekend. I also love a great bottle of wine and rocking out to heavy metal music. I have seen Megadeth five times, if that gives you a clue. In my early days, you would find me in a mosh pit.
Originally hailing from the Windy City of Chicago Illinois, green and lush Oregon is where I currently reside spinning imaginary worlds in my head and daydreaming.
