Forrest has been a college professor, an international scholar, an expatriate, a medal-winning martial artist, a trophy-winning archer, a ticket-winning Skee Ball player, a wilderness survivalist, a sailor, a corporate consultant, an architect, a horseman, a rock-and-roll guitarist, and an utter layabout.
He is the author of dozens of short stories, which have appeared in the likes of Analog Science Fiction and Fact, Crossed Genres, Third Flatiron, Robot Cowgirl Press, and others. An active member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, J.L. Forrest is also an advocate for literacy, literature, and literary shenanigans of most kinds.
