Taran J Hook
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
I'm Taran J Hook
I'm a New Jersey actor, comic, and boat mechanic.

It's not uncommon to find me in a number of different places along the East Coast. I'm easy to find and apparently hard to forget. Don't be afraid to say hi.

Current projects:

The Star Children (novel)
The Dock season 2 1/2 (web series)
The Crown (book series)
Saving Autumn (novel)
It's Been a Long Road (stand-up)

Current Residence: Wildwood Crest, New Jersey
Favourite genre of music: metal, and polka
Favourite style of art: to look at, B&W pencil. To actually do, digital
Personal Quote: You're only young once, but you can be immature forever!
First thing's first, I'm still out of a laptop. I've been having to use the local library, which is annoying especially for doing work related stuff and I only have an hour and a half to get everything I need to do done or risk losing it. I've just gotten back to replying to messages, some from like, April. Sometimes my tablet lets me respond, sometimes it doesn't, so for certain messages I've made sure to get to a reliable computer so the message doesn't get lost.

As for my thing that I'm working on in the meantime... Thankfully I've finally figured out how to use Google Docs, so that I can do things at home and then edit them when at a computer and not have to worry about dealing with flash drives and such. I'm continuing to work on Saving Autumn and The Star Children so that once I'm able to, I can update both of them with a few chapters. There's a short story I'm working on as well, called Keeper. All I'm saying is that it's in the Saving Autumn 'story-verse' and takes place well before Faolan and Fae show up in Forwynn. Again, had a few random scenes pop in my head, decided to run with it and now I'm really liking it. I do have the whole story mapped out, it's fairly short and is looking to be only about 6 parts long. I'll try to post a teaser for it but my main goal, since it's so short, is to have the whole thing finished and THEN start posting it. 

Being that it's May, I'm approaching my busy season and I'm involved with 2 major shows for the summer so there's a chance some updates are going to be few and far between and I may fall off the planet again. Fingers crossed, I remember to renew my membership so then I can schedule posts all during the summer and let my account basically run itself. That was nice while I had it.

That's what's going on in my little corner of Jersey.

question. If Hook is molded after Charles II, is Harper modeled after Nel Gwyn?
TaranJHook Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist Writer
Harper is my own character. I wanted to play with nationalities and especially during this time period there was a of drama going on between England and Ireland. Having a character who was not only Irish, but also a woman, and a woman with power, created an interesting dynamic to play with.  Once I ever get there. The entire Crown series is written down in a bunch of notebooks right now. It's just getting the time to type everything up.
