Known for his incisive approach to writing, he really understands the art form, taking his readers on a journey, really pushing creative boundaries in the process. From graphic novels to crime-fiction, he’s a versatile writer with a lot to say and offer, really making the most of each and every one of his premises. Keeping his audience glued to the page, he definitely has a gift for suspense and tension as well, really taking it up a level in the process.

Over the course of his literary career, he’s also created several series, seeing his readers returning for more time and time again. Proving to have created a successful formula with his work, his voice has shone through on the page, giving it a fresh and unique perspective. This approach to storytelling has ultimately allowed him to become an idiosyncratic household name for many around the world. Through the universal nature and themes of his work he’s related to many both nationally and internationally, being hugely popular worldwide.

Crafting finely tuned characters too, he manages to really push the envelope when it comes to populating his stories with idiosyncratic personalities. Making sure his books speak not just for himself, but universal truths as well, he relates to readers from both far and wide. His characters are also what ensure readers come back for more too, as they effectively leave a powerful imprint upon the audience. With a lot more still yet to follow, he’s a writer who wont be finishing up anytime soon either, as his writing career continues to grow day-by-day.

Early and Personal Life

Born in 1966 on the 22nd of November, Jason Starr was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York City, he would begin writing in university. Growing up, he had more of an interest in tennis, baseball, and horse racing, before discovering his love of the written word. Attending Midwood High School, he would later go on to attend and graduate from Binghamton University, which was where he began writing fiction and plays.

A few of his plays would be performed in Off-Off-Broadway, and he would soon focus on fiction and crime novels in particular. Many of his books would be satirical in nature, with them being set in and around New York City, as he’d draw heavily from the world around him. Living in New York to this very day he continues to write regularly on an ever-consistent basis, with a lot more to follow yet.

Writing Career

The first novel that Jason Starr would write was titled ‘Cold Caller,’ and it would come out back in 1997 to many positive reviews. He’d soon go on to publish his second novel in 1998 the following year, which was titled ‘Nothing Personal,’ which would also be well received. Sometime later, he would also go on to write a few book series as well, featuring recurring protagonists, and they were also crime-fiction.

During his career, Starr has been given many awards, such as a ‘Barry Award’ in 2004 for ‘Tough Luck,’ and ‘Anthony Awards’ on two separate occasions. Books of his have also been optioned for big-screen adaptations, and he’s also written for the television as well, including work with Marvel comics. A well-known figure both offline and on, he regularly speaks at events, being a highly vocal voice for both him and his craft.

Panic Attack

Originally released through the ‘Minotaur Books’ publishing imprint, it first came out in 2009 on the 4th of August. The book itself has also been optioned by director David Fincher’s film production company, and was a major bestseller in Austria. No part of any series as such, it’s a stand-alone crime-thriller set in New York, and is definitely a must for any fans of the author.

Living the otherwise perfect life with his wife Dana, Dr. Adam Bloom seems to have it all, along with his twenty-two year old college graduate daughter Marissa. Then late one night two unarmed intruders make their way into their house, and Bloom manages to shoot one of them, while the other one gets away. Now the family must live with the aftermath of the event, asking some deep and serious questions in the process, as their daughter meets a new partner, and Bloom has his suspicions. Who is this new artist boyfriend really, will the assailant come back for revenge, and what will become of them as they face a panic attack?

Dealing with some tougher subject matter, this book covers a lot of ground, making for an extremely engaging and effective thriller. Raising some interesting questions about morality, it’s also a tension fuelled story with a lot to offer the reader in the way of suspense. Keeping the audience on the edge of their seat throughout, it doesn’t hold back, right up until its thrilling conclusion.

The Craving

First arriving through the ‘Ace Books’ publishing imprint, this would arrive in 2012, and would be the second book in ‘The Pack’ series. It’s best the books themselves are read in order so they easily make sense, with ‘The Pack’ being the first published back in 2005. There are elements of horror combined with social satire, as it has a lot to say on various different contemporary issues of the day.

Wanting only to head off with his pack, Simon Burns has nearly lost everything in his otherwise successful life, from his job to his home. With his inner wolf desperate to be let out, he’s found a ‘pack’ of like-minded friends who seem to understand him and his plight. Finding who he truly is, he blacks out some nights, not being able to remember the horrific details, but it’s difficult to leave the pack now he’s in seemingly for good. Does he really want to though, can he ever hope to make sense of it all, and what will finally become of the craving?

Mixing satirical commentary with supernatural elements, this displays another side to Jason Starr’s versatile body-of-work. Following on from the previous book, it builds upon some of the interesting ideas that came previously, really working with and developing them. Using its premise to tell an entertaining story, there’s plenty of room to continue, as it’s definitely a story with a lot to offer.
