Meet the Author

Jason Wood is a visionary who, with a raw and vital voice, has blended his truly unique experiences into a stunning four-part series called From Here to Half Moon Bay. As an African-American adopted as a young child by a Caucasian family, Jason has struggled with the burning questions of identity and the sense of belonging. Who he is and from where he came are questions that spurred him to write From Here to Half Moon Bay, the chilling tour de force that invites you along on his journey in search of answers to everything he is and all that he has learned. Stirred by the uncompromising need to find his birth parents, From Here to Half Moon Bay Part One is the seed of his life-long quest to uncover the truth, his truth.

Born in San Francisco, Jason grew up in the coastal community called Half Moon Bay. Located just south of San Francisco, Half Moon Bay is a friendly town; a beautiful Rockwell painting come to life, where doors stay unlocked, everyone knows everyone, and a helping hand - from either friends or families - are simply parts of the idyllic landscape. For many Half Moon Bay is the perfect place to raise a family; yet for others, perfection is subjective. Half Moon Bay may, indeed, be beautiful but like many a small town, it has its secrets.

Jason knows full well the validity of secrets and the varying perceptions of 'perfection.' From Here to Half Moon Bay reveals his intimate knowledge of the subjective value of perfection. Written in just 28 days, Part One is the extension of a letter drafted to his birth parents in the event they are ever found. First-hand, From Here to Half Moon Bay Part One begins the sometimes poignant, sometimes amusing exploration and examination of the impact of adoption, racism, sexual abuse, incest, drug use, crime, maturity, love and hatred, solitude, grief and sorrow and the everlasting spirit to not only survive but to overcome.

Undeniably, From Here to Half Moon Bay is a trek into a world many are forced to reside. It is also a symbol of the presence of spirit. Written from the heart by a man who, in spite of the breadth of his experiences, has never envisioned becoming a writer, From Here to Half Moon Bay is a courageous series of novels that magnify the need to unveil and heal.

Working nonstop, Jason Wood placed his life and soul onto paper and in that, found an outlet - through his laughter, tears and anger - in which to begin to heal.
