My name is Jakob Wild, and I grew up in the mixed oak forests of Pennsylvania, USA. My childhood took place in the middle of nowhere, with plenty of winding roads and a night sky full of stars. That place allowed me to roam and explore the hidden worlds within the surrounding woods. My imagination was able to truly grow and run wild in that place. Yet the quiet and isolated countryside had the misfortune of breeding many strong beliefs paired with incomplete world views in those around me. It threatened to swallow me. My few school friends lived over 35 miles away, my elders were busy with their own problems and preconceived notions, and the two kids within walking distance were hard to have any healthy relationships with. I sometimes worried I would be trapped there forever. Many aspects of these things bleed into my stories in some form or another.
While I always had stories in my heart, from pretending to running around Middle-earth to the stories I told myself, I did not start putting pencil to paper until high-school. While I had a love for it and wrote often, it was not my time, dwindling off during my attempt at college. After I spent years with the occasional day dream of revisiting old worlds and figuring out my life, my moment finally came to pick up the pen in June 2021.
I write what I read. Though provoking and abstract, with hints of something deeper. Sic-Fic, Fantasy and Horror are my main genres of choice. I lean towards shorter forms of creative writing.
