My real name is Chris Jackson, though I write under the name C. J. Korryn. I write fiction and Christian fiction in several genres, short stories, serial novels, and Biblically based allegories and Bible stories in a more character-based lens. You can find an example of my Bible stories on my Wattpad page and (obviously) my Noah’s Ark story. I also have a collection of three short stories published in one book “The Saint with Trin, and Omega Station”
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, and after one enlistment, I returned to Abilene to get a teaching degree, and I currently teach 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.
