Jason E. Fort was born and raised in Greenville, SC. His parents allowed him to be heavily involved with a small local church, and he went on to attend a small Christian college and pursue a brief career in education as a PE teacher. Along the way he taught and coached basketball, baseball, and football. He wanted to make more money for his family, so one day he walked into a local bar and asked about a job as a bouncer. People began telling him he needed to go into law enforcement or security, so he finally took them up on it. He’s been a police officer since 2010, and also happens to write novels and a blog.
