J.P. Biddlecome was born June 3, 2002. He has one younger brother, a mom who taught him, and a dad who drove double long tanker trucks and taught J.P. good work ethic.
He asked for a typewriter for his seventh birthday, illustrating how his writing interests began from a young age. His first writings were journal entries, which grew in creativity as he changed to short stories. He wrote his first full manuscript when he was 11, a story he called Alternate World.
J.P. is dyslexic, but his perseverance, creativity, and desire to learn have pushed him on. He was the youngest artist, for three years, at the Two Rivers Art Gallery in Chiloquin, Oregon (near Crater Lake). He has published two books in 2019, two more in 2020. and is still releasing new works each year.
In 2021 his second book, Big Noise, won the Author of the Year award.
He currently lives in Corvallis, studying Environmental Sciences and Aquatic Biology at Oregon State University.
The first volume in a series of short story & poetry compilations by J.P. Biddlecome.
Includes the first chapter of Big Noise, J.P.'s second book, and Big Noise short story.
Sample from Sirens, one of the poems in Vol.1:
I hear other people crying, whimpering, and praying
I see the fear and the pain
But does it compare to the heartache of those who still live?
And I wonder, oh I wonder
Will they ever come for me?
Includes On the Road, A Big Noise short story, which is a must read for any Big Noise fan.
"I started writing short stories before I wrote my first manuscript, when I was 11. and since then I kept writing them on the side, as well as poems. Earlier this year, 2021, I decided I could start publishing annual, or semi annual volumes of short stories and poetry. And that is how this first installment came to be," J.P. Biddlecome.
