Author Bio

Jasen Sousa was born and raised in Somerville, MA. where he grew up as a successful basketball player. Being an athlete helped him stay away from the drugs and crime that plagued the rest of his peers. Being surrounded and growing up in this type of environment and seeing what was going on with sober eyes, Jasen knew that something was terribly wrong. To deal with his own sadness and frustrations, Jasen turned to writing at the age of 17. Writing started as a hobby, but after losing some close friends to suicide, writing became a need to tell a story of what was going on in his neighborhood.

Eloquently embodying all of their emotions and eventually becoming a voice for his generation, Jasen founded J-Rock Publishing. J-Rock was founded and created with the purpose to give young people a voice with the written word. To date Jasen has written 7 Hip-Hop inspired poetry novels. Life, Weather, A Thought and A Tear for Every Day of the Year, Close Your Eyes and Dream With Me, Almost Forever, A Mosaic of My Mind, Selected Poems of Jasen Sousa, 17-24 and Humming Eternity.

Jasen has sold thousands of his books throughout the United States. He frequently travels across the country making guest appearances at book shows, high schools and colleges to talk about his life, his writing and future visions he has for his company. Jasen has just recently graduated from Emerson College in Boston with a Bachelor’s Degree in Writing, Literature and Publishing and is currently enrolled in graduate school at Pine Manor College on Chestnut Hill to attain his MFA in creative writing.
