Jonathan Lazar was born in 1985 to the greatest generation that there is: the Nintendo Generation! The eldest of three male siblings, Lazar is the only creative one. His brothers inherited the sports genes. Originally from the Chicago area, he has lived in Michigan, middle-of-nowhere Illinois, St. Louis and currently Tucson. When he’s not writing fantasy or science fiction, he draws, cooks, bakes and stuffs his face full of sushi or pizza that he has made. He shares two Siamese cats with his husband, whom he met in college. Or rather – he would say – Siamese cats (Ping and Pong) share them. His most recent novel is "Zachariah Lars and the High Elf Mystery."
