J.P. Barnett grew up in a tiny Texas town where the list of possible vocations failed to include published author. In second grade, he worked harder than any other student to deliver a story about a tiger cub who singlehandedly saved the U.S. Military, earning him a shiny gold star and a lifelong appreciation of telling a good story.

Fast forwarding through decades of schooling and a career as a software engineer, J.P. Barnett stepped away from it all to get back to his first real passion. Years of sitting at a keyboard gifted him with some benefit, though, including blazing fast typing hands and a full tank of creativity.

As a child, J.P. consumed any book he could get his hands on. The likes of Stephen King, Michael Crichton, and Dean Koontz paved the bookshelves of his childhood, providing a plethora of fantastical and terrifying tales that he read way too early in life. Though the effect these books had on his psyche could be called into question, these masters of storytelling managed to warp his mind in just the perfect way to spin a fun yarn or two.

J.P. currently resides in San Antonio with his wife and hellion of a cat, both of whom look at him dubiously with some frequency.

Coming March 2019: The Beast of Rose Valley, Book 1 of the “Lorestalker” series of suspense/horror thrillers.

Something evil stalks the citizens of Rose Valley—not for the first time, but hopefully for the last.

After suffering through a horrific car accident, Jake Rollins struggles to survive in his tiny hometown of Rose Valley—a place to which he hoped never to return.

When a sheep is viciously mutilated on the ranch where Jake is recovering, he’s dragged back into the cloying politics of small town life. While the Sheriff tries to pass off the incident as the work of coyotes, Jake turns to a local reporter and old high school flame, Shandi Mason, to search for the truth.

They discover that this creature has stalked Rose Valley before, claiming nearly a century of carnage and intrigue, all starting with a shameful secret guarded over by one of the town’s most respected citizens.

As livestock mutilations escalate into deadly attacks on humans, and the Sheriff organizes a foolhardy manhunt, Jake and Shandi must race to save the town from a seemingly unstoppable evil.

Taya is a mix of a bubbly and stubborn personality trapped in an old, sad soul. She believes there’s something extraordinary in each being, that no one is too small or insignificant to deserve a second chance in life.

Her chaotic identity took a hit when her father suddenly died. Clawing her way up from the murky hole his death created forced her to face the facts of being tangled in toxic relationships, and depression that had a violent hold on her muddled mind.

She wanted to be whole again. Her restless feet and burning passion for animals led to leaving her home in Finland, and to accepting a working student job at a horse farm in Hereford, England. Long hours, hard physical labor, and countless nasty bunions ruined her body—but was Xanax for her soul.

To further her career in dressage, Taya moved to America, and lived in Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and California. Each mile traveled, she felt healthier, more independent, stronger.

She didn’t need another person to make things happen for her, to heal. She needed only to live free. And just then, when she least wanted it, she found a being whose heart loved the same way as hers did.

For years, she and her little menagerie traveled. Struggle was no stranger in their lives, but not a day went by without laughter and a new experience from which to grow and learn.

After living through 1001 bizarre tales, Taya returned to Finland to take a breather from her shenanigans, and to finish her first novel in the “Borderline” series.

COMING LATE 2018: Between Two Doors, Book 1 of the “Borderline” series (Inspired by Actual Events)

Depressed and abandoned after her father dies, Dee is sent to a therapy center, where she must decide between two doors.

Behind one door awaits a life in her home country. She can stay and scramble through a tangle of mistakes made, but a poisonous relationship is slowly killing her. Choosing the first door leaves her in danger of suffocating.

The second door offers her an escape. She can run away to an unknown land far away, where demanding physical labor could help push aside her inner demons. The second door just might give her a fresh start.

Which door will she choose?

Like many new authors, I said for years I wanted to write a book. Life, careers, and other necessary evils seemed to always derail that goal. Then, last year, on a road trip out west, I found the spark that ignited The Temptation of Destiny.

My journey began in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. After high school, I joined the U.S. Coast Guard, spending the better part of eight years busting holes in the sky on C-130s. After the military, my career path meandered through the financial services industry, auto industry, bar industry, and construction management.

I am excited to start my next adventure with a move out west, and begin work on my second book. New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment, will provide the rich Native American mythology to take readers on another roller coaster ride (as The Temptation of Destiny does).

In my downtime, I enjoy hiking and other outdoor adventures with my wife. Hunting, fishing, and doing everything possible to stay from falling into the “status quo,” fuels me.

When it’s time to wind down this adventure we call life, I hope to be sitting in a cabin high in the alpine forests of the Rockies, spending the days with my wife, children, family, and friends, reminiscing about the blessings this life afforded us all.

22 May 2018: The Evolved Publishing Team welcomes its newest artist and illustrator.

I am particularly fascinated by the relationship between art and human perception. Studying art is like engaging in an interrogation with nature, constantly trying to figure out if our assumptions about the world are in any way accurate. Even if such an aspiration may never be fulfilled, there is an excitement in embarking on the venture of unravelling the opacity of the universe.

I believe writers and artists share this desire intimately. I enjoy working with authors on their book covers since it gives me an opportunity to understand the myriad ways in which the authors express the world they have imagined, or interpret the world around them. I love art and I love words, and I find it satisfying to develop a book cover that resonates with the writer. In addition to art, literature is one of my passions, and I am an aspiring writer myself.

I initially chose to study Computer Science, but the lure of creative pursuits proved too strong to resist. I experimented with animation as a means of expressing the stories I wanted to tell, but ultimately I found illustration to have the strongest appeal for me, and I decided to explore it in a self-taught manner. For the past few years I have been working as a self-employed illustrator based in the UK, designing book covers as well as environments for comics.

Please feel to reach out to me through any of the links in the contact section. I’m always up for any discussions about books, art or philosophy.

I’m a writer. From childhood I kindled three dreams: to one day become a father, a writer, and a baseball player.

Two of three ain’t bad. (I shall neither confirm nor deny holding out deluded hope for the third.) Most of what I write is fiction, but not all. I write the occasional article and guest post, and conduct some interviews. I’m an English major, have a masters in social work, and have been an early childhood leader/advocate for many years. I’m sports-obsessed, love animals, and love to share the veritable treasure trove of pithy comments from my kiddos, particularly my little girl, about whom I receive regular requests for more “Rachelisms.”
