Co-Writer - Jaramy Conners realized he was going to be a writer in seventh grade, when his English teacher challenged him to write a story. His first story was terrible, but fortunately, no one told him that. From that moment on, he was rarely seen without notebook and pen. Eager to improve his craft, he studied creative writing at St. Lawrence University and earned his MFA from Chatham University. For the past twelve years, he has worked as a writer in the tech industry, developing thousands of technical guides, blog posts, media scripts, and anything else that needed well-crafted words. He also continued to write stories. His short story “Steve” was awarded the Katherine Paterson Prize by Hunger Mountain, and he is actively working on a variety of creative projects for children and adults.
