Jason Schimschal is the author of the Darken Realm series of books. He is also a chemist and technical writer for a generic pharmaceutical company. Schimschal enjoys speaking about his life as a science fiction author and his knowledge of science in general. Schimschal's current series is based on the struggles of two youth, who are cast out of their village as a rite of passage. Those exiled are supposed to scour the ruins of the battered world for ancient relics and lost technologies. Twenty full moons must rise before the youth can return home and take their place in Scarskin society... but only if they survive. It is Schimschal's goal to write novels that draw the reader in, and bring them back to his novels time and again. Schimschal enjoys speaking for free at local events, espacially to encourage students to become involved in science.
