My real name is Chris Jackson, though I write under the name C. J. Korryn. I write fiction and Christian fiction, along with short stories, serial novels, and Biblically based allegories, and Bible stories in a more character-based lens.
I currently have a collection of three short stories published in one book, “The Saint with Trin, and Omega Station." I have a stand-alone novel, "Noah's Ark" and a book series called "Insurrection." And of course, I am working on a book series of short story collections, "Bible Dramatizations."
I decided to publish under C.J. Korryn mainly because I wanted something that would stick out, something to catch the eye and something to make it easier to find and follow me on social media platforms. There is a sea of “Chris Jackson” from famous authors to sports players to musicians and painters, so I decided to find a pen name that few people had.
I grew up a military brat but stayed in Abilene, Texas, when my dad retired until I graduated high school. I then moved to Springfield, Missouri, to go to Bible college. After graduating, I soon joined the Air Force in Security Forces. After one enlistment, I returned to Abilene to get a teaching degree, and now I teach English in Abilene.
Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a freshman in high school when I had a vocabulary assignment in which I had to write a fiction story using the vocabulary words. I have never stopped writing since, first writing my dreams into short stories.
