JN Chaney is a young adult and science fiction author who loves to describe himself as a “Super Mario Brothers” fan. He has an MFA in Creative Writing and published his first novel “The Amber Project” in 2015. After he served in the US Air Force, he became a full-time author and by 2020 he had become a prolific author with nearly 100 titles to his name in the “Variant Saga,” “Renegade Star,” “Orion Colony,” “Renegade Origins,” “Last Reaper,” “Fifth Column,” “Ruins of the Galaxy,” “Resonant Son,” “Messenger,” “Sol Arbiter,” “Galactic Law,” “Cyborg Corps,” “Deadland Drifter,” “King’s League,” “Renegade,” “Ruins of the Earth,” “Starcaster,” “Wayward Galaxy,” “Exodus Ark series,” a single standing title, a collection of short stories, a novella and contribution to the “Masters of Space Opera” series. His debut series the “Variant Saga” is a dystopian series about genetic engineering among other cool stuff. When he is not gaming or writing, he can be found goofing off online. He has said that he caught the writing bug while goofing off with his friend while in the military. He also loved to spend a lot of his time reading or watching series on Netflix. As for where he lives, Chaney moves a lot but was last seen in Florida.

Chaney began writing in high school when a friend came to school with a story he had written about the apocalyptic end of the world. He thought it was the coolest story he ever read even though it was only two paragraphs long. That very night, he began writing a science fiction story on a notepad he had taken from his mother’s bedroom. It was a dystopian story about a spaceship he and his friend had found in the backyard and accidentally activated to release superpowers and aliens. Needless to say, it was a cheesy story given that it was the first time she had ever written something creative. However, the fifty-seven-page story was enough to convince his mother to get him a computer with a dial-up connection. He started trawling the forums and found that there were a lot of people passionate about stories. He started posting his writing on the forums and did so for several years, improving as he got feedback. During this time, Chaney was also reading a lot and when he went to college his biggest influence was Orson Scott Card. He would later graduate to the likes of Stephen King, Joe Haldeman, and John Scalzi. He has also been influenced a lot by gaming and some aspects of games find their way into his novels.

After four years in the Air Force, JN Chaney knew that writing was something he wanted to do and started planning for life outside the army. During this time, he spent between fifty and seventy-five percent of his paycheck as he saved the rest. He turned down trips to visit family, night out with friends, and ate cereal for dinner and when he finally left the Air Force he had enough to support himself for a year and a half. While he had money and had planned for it, it was not any less terrifying once he was doing it. Chaney asked himself whether he was doing the right thing and cut his expenses to bare bones and worked twelve to fifteen-hour days to ensure he was successful. This perhaps explains why he has built the huge platform he has and become one of the most prolific authors in the genre. While building was a great feeling the ride was hard, it was all worth it once he became a bestselling author with a ton of bestselling titles to his name.

JN Chaney’s “The Amber Project” opens to a dystopian future earth that is dealing with “Variant,” a poisonous and mysterious gas that has forced survivors underground. Several generations of survivors have been desperately trying to repopulate the Earth but so far they have been unsuccessful. They have finally stumbled upon a genetic modification technique that they believe could be the last hope for humanity. But while they have managed to produce genetically modified children, do they have the courage to tell their children what they are? It is a society that controls births and then takes the children at seven years of age to train them on how to survive in a very dangerous world. Terry is one child that was taken, trained and educated to prepare him for life on the surface. But while their teachers have done a good job, it may not be enough to help them deal with what they will find when they finally go on to the surface of the planet. They can breathe the poisonous air and maybe they will be the people that can turn off the machinery choking the planet and finally allow humanity to thrive once again.

“Transient Echoes” by JN Chaney is set three years post the Second Jolt to the Earth. A few of the trained children had managed to reset the Earth and there is hope for humanity going forward. The “Variant Air” is slowly but surely reducing in the atmosphere and humanity can now explore the world though it might come at a cost. After they closed the rift which was the source of the poisonous gas, Terry the hybrid child was transported to a faraway world very distant from what he had always known as home. Completely haunted and isolated from his past, he roams the ruined remains of an ancient civilization that has not been seen or visited for centuries. Back home, Mei a young woman has been researching methods of uncovering the secrets of the rift. She had been warned against searching for the truth but she soldiers on making an extraordinary gamble. Will her obsession result in greater destruction or will they help humanity get a better understanding of what had happened and prevent it in the future.

JN Chaney’s “Hope Everlasting” opens to Terry on the run having killed the prison overseer in the process of escaping from prison. Teaming up with Ludo his friend, they are pushing towards the northern border. Ludo’s wife is being held there and they need to get there before she is sacrificed to the gods by the barbaric locals. They need to cross a continent with an army sniping at their heels and they will need goodwill and all the help they can find from the locals. In the meantime, Mei Curie managed to open a portal to another world and found some very surprising things. There is an advanced alien race that man could ever have imagined, animals with bulletproof hides and worms as big as cars. However, Jonathan Finn has a rifle filled with bullets that he believes will take care of anything coming at them. Teaming up with a band of soldiers, he is determined to find their friend and bring him back home. But in the bizarre world they find themselves in, a simple search and rescue could not be any more dangerous.
