Jonathan Yanez was born and raised in Oxnard, CA. He was involved in everything from piano and saxophone lessons to swimming and track. Growing up his parents encouraged him to read, and he did – anything he could get his hands on. Soon he developed a fascination with storytelling and characters that would follow him the rest of his life.
Graduating from BIOLA University with his BA in English Literature he never lost his love for writing and creating. He now works full-time as a author.
Other than reading and writing, his passion is living life to the fullest. He loves; spending time with his wife, daughter and pets, watching movies, participating in mud runs, traveling, going to the gym and pushing his limits in everything. This desire takes him anywhere from skydiving and motorcycle riding, to archery and various types of martial arts. He has his eyes set next on running with the bulls in Spain.
He is married to the love of his life and resides in Southern California with his daughter and pets.
