Jacob Devlin

Friends of the Festival

When Jacob Devlin was four years old, he would lounge around in Batman pajamas and write semi-autobiographical picture books about a python named Jake the Snake. Today, he is the author of the young adult fantasy fairy tale "The Carver" and its sequels, "The Unseen" and "The Hummingbird". A native Arizonan, Jacob can usually be found disguised at a Comic-Con, spoiling his niece, or blasting Italian rock music in his car.
