Jason M. Thornberry’s writing appears in literary journals and magazines, including TAB: The Journal of Poetry & Poetics, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Entropy, and Letters Journal. Jason is also the survivor of a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic epilepsy—a life-changing experience that abruptly terminated his quest to become a professional musician. One evening, in the summer of 1999, as Jason’s band was about to release their debut album and begin touring, a pair of strangers beat him into a coma and left him for dead. When Jason awoke, he could not walk or speak. Jason spent a year in a wheelchair before returning to school. Jason earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Chapman University. He currently teaches writing at Seattle Pacific University and is finishing his first novel.
