About Jase

Jase Peeples is an award-winning journalist, author, and storyteller. He is the former entertainment editor of The Advocate, the leading LGBT-focused media outlet. He was named “Journalist of the Year” at the 2014 L.A. Press Club National Arts & Entertainment Journalism Awards where he was praised for his “original angles and points of view” which cast “new light on many beaten tracks of entertainment journalism.”

As the son of a librarian, Jase grew up surrounded by books and fell in love with storytelling at a very early age—writing his first story at the age of seven. In 2016 he realized a life-long dream with the publication of his first children’s picture book Square Zair Pair.

He currently lives in San Francisco with his partner and his ever-growing collection of comic books.
