From the time Jearl was thirteen and completed his first term paper on ancient Greece and Rome, the passion to write ignited. At first, journalism seemed a logical pursuit, but the path down newspaper and magazine publication wasn’t broad enough for his drive. He needed a motor speedway; somewhere he could floorboard the throttle of his imagination. He now writes suspense novels where his unsuspecting characters best buckle up. Jearl makes his residence on the Washington State coast just an eight-minute walk to the Pacific Ocean. Free range black tail deer grazing on his lawn, bald eagles keeping the rodent population in check and power walks with the pounding surf at his ear are only part of the inspiration he finds near home. Whether it’s the deserts of eastern Washington, the streets of downtown Seattle or the ocean’s shore, he draws the settings for his character-based novels from the diverse pallet of the Pacific Northwest.
About Jearl Rugh's Reading & Writing
I read a broad spectrum of novels, recently finishing “The Hunger Games" trilogy just to see what's happening in YA. My tastes lean toward thrillers, especially with a psychological bent. Perhaps that's why I tend to write on the mental edge. My first published novel, "Born to Make the Kill, " pits youthful innocence against gnarled psychosis in a 2, 000-mile race across four western states. My newest work, "Dead of Nyte, " rides along with a Seattle police officer while she pieces together the clues left by a Vietnam POW who, after 40 years, chooses murder to act out his manifesto. .
