jp Rodriguez

jp Rodriguez grew up in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He studied in Thunder Bay, Vancouver and Toronto, taking more courses than he suspects anyone ever has en-route to a teaching degree. Following his studies, he spent seven years abroad, and those experiences greatly influenced him and his work.

He began writing fiction in Japan, while teaching English to students ranging in age from three to eight-eight. After five years living in Tokyo and traveling extensively, he and his wife moved to London, England, for two years. They returned to Thunder Bay, and jp began to rethink a teaching career, deciding to focus on social work. He now works in that field.

jp is passionate about social justice and global politics, and these interests inform his writing. He has written and published many short stories, and The Space Between is his first novel.

Although writing is what he loves most, he also enjoys painting, making music, photography, cycling and skiing.
