Jon Hakes writes fiction.  He lives in Wisconsin with his wife, Alyssa, their sons, Ricky and Malcolm, and their cats (who prefer that their names not be mentioned here).  When not writing, he enjoys hanging out with his family, managing a household, reading, being outdoors, eating real food, complaining about the state of the news media in the U.S., listening to/making music, watching movies, and obsessing over why he is not writing.  To be clear, he also still enjoys all of these things when he is writing.  All of them.
