Biography

Jordan Belcher grew up in a inner city neighborhood in Kansas City, Missouri, with his mother and father, and two older brothers. Living below the poverty level, he was forced to be creative to entertain himself. He built clubhouses, made his own toys out of paste and cardboard, directed plays in his basement for the neighborhood kids to act out, and at the age 11 he had written several comic books. His mother was an elementary school teacher, and she would take him to her teacher workshops to make copies of his books that he would sell to his classmates, even to his principal.

But as a teen he let go of his artistry, dropped out of high school and grabbed on to crime. He went from petty thievery to armed robbery, and a month after he turned 19 he was arrested and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Behind bars, he started reading urban literature and immediately rediscovered his passion for writing.

He earned his GED and penned his first novel by the age 22, wrote his second by the age 24, and now at 26, Jordan Belcher has his debut novel, Tre Pound, scheduled for release April 2010 through Art Official Media. He?s currently working on a sequel and revising an earlier work, but more than anything he is preparing for his release from prison in early 2011.
