Award-winning horror and zombie maestro Brian Keene called Janz, “One of the best writers in modern horror to come along in the last decade.”

In addition to being a multi-genre author, Jonathan leads a double life as a full-time high school educator and family man.

He is the author of nine novels and recently signed an 11-book deal to offer limited-run, collector’s editions of his books.

Jonathan’s tenth novel — Children of the Dark — lands March 15th, 2016, and it has been likened by critics to Stephen King’s work.
