F. J. Talley is a Philadelphia native who has had many different career aspirations. After cowboy and fireman, he temporarily settled on being a music conductor. While in high school he switched to a medical career, which lasted until his first Biology course in college. Many years and six states later, he lives on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay directing a scholars program at a local college.
F. J. wrote his first novel-length work in the summer between college and graduate school. This still unpublished work helped to develop his writing style, characterized by dialogue sprinkled with wit and dry humor, even though he doesn’t really have a sense of humor.
He is a big fan of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, and was led to NaNoWriMo by one of his students who has written five novels: F. J. is determined to catch up with her. His first NaNoWriMo-written book is Twin Worlds, followed by Take Hart, both of which were published in 2017. His third novel, Diaspora, is slated for publication in 2018.
