Just the basics

J.A. Paquette

I was born in Waterville, Maine. The son of a military man, I grew up in various states around the country until my father retired and relocated back home from Sacramento, California to rural Maine.

I currently reside in Durham, New Hampshire with my wife and two daughters. When I’m not writing, I work as the Vice President Of Operations for a local manufacturing firm, attend open mic sessions and occasionally teach guitar.
