About%20me%20Headshot_Statue_edited.jpg

Thank you for visiting my site, my name is J.G. Blodgett, founder of Gate Key Publishing. I guess you're here because you might just be interested in me as an author. Well, if that is the case, then you probably already know that I write middle-grade fantasy and children's books, so let's see what you don't know about me.

When I'm not writing, I am usually spending time with my amazing wife and two beautiful children. Our house is full of animals: two dogs, a cat, and two adorable little cavies (guinea pigs) - it's a regular small farm we have going. Guinea pigs are easily my most favorite animals ever! Which is kind of funny, as I was reluctant to get a guinea pig when my wife, Paula, first presented me with the idea, which was supposed to be a present for my son, but I quickly fell in love with the little whistle pigs - it's kind of hard not to fall in love with them when they whistle like they do! Well, enough about cavies, maybe just a tad bit about what I'm up to as an author.

I currently have a middle-grade fantasy novel out called The Dark Light which is just Book 1 in an ongoing series called the Gate Key Chronicles. I absolutely love to write in the fantasy realm, and hope you enjoy reading the genre - as I plan to stay in there for a long time.

 

More than writing for entertainment, as a Christian writer, my hope is that my writings will also get the reader to look deeper within themselves, as well as take a closer look at the world around them, and possibly help one to ponder those impossible, life-altering questions. When I used to write for film, I actually had a production company called If Only One Productions, the title implying that: if my films could help to change just one person's life for the better, and maybe even help lead that person into either a new, or deeper, personal relationship with God, then I will have been a success as a filmmaker, and in what I believe to be my calling as an artist. My hope remains the same with my novels and children's books.

I do hope you will join me on my latest journey into the world of creative authoring and publishing, by subscribing below. All subscribers are privy to what's coming up next from Gate Key Publishing - way before anyone else - as well as secret content that no one else gets to see!
