JP Wilder

This is my website.  I write dark fantastic fiction, and enjoy stories that flit around the darker side of speculative fiction — just on the edge of Horror.


I make my home with my beautiful wife and family in a suburb of Los Angeles, among a cluttered collection of too-big, cookie-cutter structures. Here I rest each night after a long (and somewhat miserable) commute from the glass monoliths of West Los Angeles, cloistered away from the multi-hued grid of American culture, pretending that I am above it all.

Currently, I run this little blog, ply a trade as an executive in a financial services firm and muddle along as a wannabe (rather soon-to-be, for have the utmost, if undeserved, confidence) successful author.  Yet, in my life I have donned many uniforms. I have been:


A farmer (or son of a farmer — unwilling [and unable] to claim the expertise of my father in the ways of farming and ranching)
A dishwasher
A projectionist
A paratrooper
An Army scout
A student
A frat guy (of sorts)
A roofer
A plumber (but not a very good one)
A grad student (twice-cooked)
A professor (Adjunct really)
An accountant
A husband
An executive
An author
A father

And as I have changed and adapted to the world around me, one thing has remained constant: My connection to fantasy fiction and the macabre.

    If you are anything like my wife raising our kids, I am surprised you have time to read, much less keep a blog!

    I like your posts on ADHD. My kids aren’t impacted. but some nephews.

    I will like your site later. I am unfortunately at work right now. Thanks for kind comments!

    Wow! You looked at my website? Thanks! I want your next book when it comes out! Must write that review…. but I’m a busy, scattered mom.

    Just read The Crusader. Loved it. Must right a review.
    I grew up in L.A., but fled when I got the chance. Now I live in the wilds of Idaho.
