A Georgia native, Dan Jolley is an American author who writes novels, video games, and comic books, collects unmotivated felines, and should really go to the gym more. His first original novel trilogy, the YA sci-fi/espionage "Alex Unlimited," was published in 2007. In 2016 he launched two new series, the superhero noir "Gray Widow Trilogy" and the Middle Grade urban fantasy trilogy "Five Elements." His latest novel, published in December of 2018, marks his first-ever mystery/thriller, the "southern-fried Stephen King" novel "The Storm." His comics work includes DC Comics' Firestorm, Eisner Award nominated JSA: The Unholy Three, and TokyoPop's The Lost Warrior, an extension of the Warriors novel series by Erin Hunter; his video games include Transformers: War For Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron, Dying Light, and Chronos. Dan and his wife, Tracy, live somewhere in the northwest Georgia foothills.
