J.A. Kalis

Ever since a very young age I have had a passion for reading, travelling, meeting new people, learning foreign languages and experiencing new cultures.
Those passions and my love of adventure inspired me to write my debut novel When The Jaguar Sleeps.

I have wanted to write a novel for as long as I could remember, but somehow I wasn't able to get around to it. Finally, an opportunity presented itself and I grabbed it. One day an idea for a story popped into my head, where it began to linger and grow. I just couldn't get it out of my mind. Slowly, scenes and characters took shape in my brain. And I began to write my thoughts down. A year later I completed my debut novel When The Jaguar Sleeps.
From then on, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a full-time writer.
