In my novels, I want the reader to experience places that are filled with hopes, dreams, challenges and fears that make us human. Come join me in this reading adventure!



   J. E. Thompson grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York and attended Bushwick High School. The sixties in Brooklyn was an era that had a personality, a feel, and a life-force that changed a generation. Mr. Thompson felt this energy and experienced these fires of social change.

      After high school, Mr. Thompson spent the next four years riding the "A" train to Harlem, in upper Manhattan, to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from the City College of New York. At CCNY, which was located just a few blocks from the famous Apollo Theater, Wednesday afternoons were hard on the undergraduates. The matinee performances of the major R&B groups of the times was more tempting than attending a boring college lecture. Most of the time Mr. Thompson succumbed to the temptation, but still earned a college degree from one of the best universities in the country.

       At CCNY, literature instructors like Prof. Thomas Tashiro, fueled the fire in him to become a writer!

       Mr. Thompson’s journey to compose a trilogy began in 1995.
The fictional journey of character Andy Michael Pilgrim from Brooklyn, to Philadelphia and finally Atlanta is now complete. In this pilgrimage, readers experience places that are filled with hopes, dreams, challenges and fears that make us human.
      The novels that make up the trilogy are A Brownstone in Brooklyn, Philly Style and Philly Profile and The Ghost of Atlanta. Mr. Thompson won the 2011 Readers Favorite National Gold Medal Award in General Fiction for The Ghost of Atlanta. Mr. Thompson also received the Georgia Author of the Year nomination for Philly Style and Philly Profile, from the Georgia Writers Association, and The Ghost of Atlanta.

      Mr. Thompson's fourth novel, Phantoms of Rockwood, was published in 2013.
      Mr. Thompson’s is working on a fifth novel which will be published in 2015: Stormy Winds. Mr. Thompson is a former Creative Writing/Publishing Instructor at Atlanta’s Evening at Emory’s Writers Studio.
