My Bio
My name is Jason Zapata. I'm a thirty-year-old writer living in Scranton, PA. My work includes poetry and fiction writing. I graduated from the University of Scranton. Besides a minor in writing and communication, my education was in history. I'm currently seeking publication for two major projects. "Ask the Leper" a collection of poetry and "The Jester's Mask" a fictional novel.

Major influences for me: The writings of Neil Gaiman, Terry Brooks, and Anne Rice. In terms of art, I really enjoy the contemporary works posted in Deviant Art. I think there’s an abundance of talent that really needs to be recognized more. Too many galleries are filled with pretentious, abstract nonsense. Current artists I follow include Catherine Langwagen, Stanley Lau, and Javier Miranda. The golden age of 80's fantasy movies also inspired me (Labyrinth, Willow, Legend, Lady Hawke, The Never Ending Story, ect.).

My major goals are to get my current projects published. I would like write one further collection of poetry and have the “The Jester’s Mask” end up being a successful trilogy.

Current Residence: Scranton, PA
Favourite genre of music: Metal / Hard Rock
Favourite style of art: Digital
Personal Quote: Letting your enemy win without a fight is defeat. I'd rather die than be defeated.

Favourite Books
Anything by Neil Gaiman. Novels by Anne Rice and Terry Brooks. For Graphic novel: Fables and Sandman.
Favourite Writers
Edgar Allan Poe
Favourite Games
Chrono Trigger
Other Interests
Novels, Graphic Novels, Art, and Cheesy Horror films.

So I finally took off of work on a Saturday. I really wanted to spend some time on Reginald. I'm super proud of this project and the support its received from the deviantArt community. Which is why I spent the weekend "pulling" the story together. "14 Years: The Chronicles of Sir Reginald The Damned" is an ongoing story in its fourth installment. But I really failed in tying the stories together chronologically. I wanted readers to have a sense of time passing as Reginald continued down the path of his dark crusade. And I believe I've remedied this. Every story now has a year stamped at the top. It was an easy way to show passage of time an

I continue to find myself disappointed with my employers. It seems companies continue to fold due to mismanagement and the anemic economy. Though my latest job wasn't awful - I can't imagine I will be there much longer. Which is frustrating, because I just want some solid ground beneath my feet.   Like everyone else right now, all I can do is try my best and take advantage of whatever opportunities present themselves. Despite the aggravations of my personal life, I'm happy with my writing. Many more readers are discovering "Sir Reginald". With every adventure I write it gets easier to pen the tales. Writing has always (will always) be the ou

I'm in the process of writing the finale for Sister Agatha! I think readers will be pleased with the ending. I wasn't sure if I'd like doubling up the content every week. Instead of posting in 3 page installments - I went with six. This ended up being a little problematic last week and I was not able to post anything. But for a great reason... I've been working hard with the designer of my website. Besides giving it a much needed facelift, we'll be able to provide free content that readers can download. By the end of summer I hope to have Reginald's first three adventures available in an impressive adobe format for your reading pleasure. Als
