JD Slajchert is an American novelist born and raised in Southern California. He wrote his debut novel, MoonFlower, during his final two years as a student-athlete at the University of California, Santa Barbara. When tragedy struck and he lost his biggest fan Luc Bodden to Sickle Cell Disease, he knew he needed to preserve Luc’s spirit and honor his memory by writing his first book.
Following his many trips to Mammoth Lakes, California, he became moved to write his first purely fiction work, Joining the Choir Invisible. A bittersweet slice of life that leaves you at the edge.
He credits much of his inspiration to many of the authors from the lauded Lost Generation, and has aspirations of one day living in Paris himself. He is currently working on his second novel.
