The nerdy, brooding, luftmensch xerophile called “Dunebat” (better known as J.C. Bat) is a sketcher, scrivener, and scholar native to West Texas. With almost two decades of experience in graphic arts and broadcast television production, Dunebat is well-versed in the media/entertainment business. He also possesses some meager experience in the private security and information technology industries.

Besides being a scholar and an artist, J.C. Bat gains inspiration for his works from his family, friends, and the people he encounters. Having dreamt of being a writer since high school, he met Empress Kitten in 2021. After proposing to her his idea for his novel The Edge of Chaos (still in development), she gladly picked up his project and said, “How come you didn’t write this earlier?”

A proud Trekkie, he has successfully converted three people so far into becoming fans of the franchise, and he often enjoys watching other classic nerdy shows such as The X-Files, Daria, and Babylon 5. His writing influences include Michael Crichton, Chris Carter, J. Michael Straczynski, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Ray Bradbury, Bram Stoker, Dan Aykroyd, George Lucas, Ira Steven Behr, and Terry Pratchett. Though his writing was first inspired by Ghostbusters, The X-Files, and The Lord of the Rings, he was ultimately motivated to write by Revelation 1:19 (KJV):

“Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter”.
