Jason William Karpf grew up with storytelling. The son of a screenwriter, he was a child actor in the early 1970s, appearing on classic TV shows such as The Bold Ones, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and Bonanza. Screenwriting became his calling from his teens to early thirties. In 1994, he wrote the book Anatomy of a Massacre, the true story of the worst mass shooting of the era, presaging the current epidemic of these crimes by 25 years.
Today, Jason is an author, professor, and marketing/fundraising professional. His blog, A Christian’s Guide to Marketing, teaches the natural unity of effective marketing and the Christian walk. His instructional book, Developing a Christian Marketing Plan, is a companion to his blog. His greatest passion is writing Christian fiction, including the sci-fi novel Brimstone 1.
Jason and Ann, his wife, live in Minnesota; between them, they have a son, two daughters, a daughter-in-law, and a grandson. When he is not writing or teaching, he is making music, playing bass and guitar in the worship team of his church. A history and trivia aficionado, Jason was a four-time champion on the TV game show Jeopardy.
