About me
Jeffrey L. Cheatham II was born on October 9th 1985, but he didn’t discover why until 1990. This was the year that his father introduced him to his favorite reading material, comics. Jeffrey immediately became fascinated with the creative worlds that comic books exposed him to. His favorite comics that he loved reading were Batman, Spiderman, & The Archie comic series. As a result of his love for comics, Jeffrey wanted to be a part of it by writing stories of his own. His passion for storytelling were evident to all those around him, even when he attended John Muir elementary school when every literary assignment he completed was in the form of a story or comic. As he entered high school, his desire to write became secondary to his athletics. The desire for storytelling re-emerged for Jeffrey during his final year of college. When late one evening he watched his favorite childhood movie, The Lion King. That moment helped Jeffrey decide that he must be true to himself and return to his writing aspirations.
