PSH Chapbook Challenge Live Until Midnight 12/1 PST

Published by Jake Cosmos Aller

I am a novelist, poet and retired U.S. diplomat having served 27 years in the Foreign Service. I have been writing poetry and short stories for decades, and have published my poetry and fiction in over 25 literary journals. My poetry can best be described as “neo-beatnik” as growing up in Berkeley I was been heavily influenced by the beatnik writers.
I have completed four SF novels, – Giant Nazi Spiders, the Great Divorce, Jurassic Cruise, and Ft. Ashland. I hope to have all four readied for possible publication within the next six months. I have completed ten volumes of poetry and one volume of short stories.

During my foreign service career, I served in ten countries (Korea, Thailand, India, the Eastern Caribbean (lived in Barbados but covering Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts, St Lucia, and St Vincent) and Spain

I grew up in Berkeley, California and have lived in Berkeley, Stockton, Seattle, Washington DC, San Antonio, Texas and Medford, Oregon, and have traveled to 49 states, and 45 foreign countries. I speak Korean, Thai, and Spanish. I am married with no children. I live half the year in Korea and half the year in the United States.
