Jafe Danbury hails from the trenches of the Hollywood production scene, where he spent decades as a camera operator, director of photography, and director. He has also worked as a teacher and is a decorated U.S. Navy veteran.
He enjoys noodling on the guitar, long road trips, likes his bacon crispy, and loves a good dive bar––especially if it happens to have a twenty-two-foot shuffleboard table. He prefers a leisurely walk to running, unless being chased by a clown with a chainsaw.
Jafe and his lovely bride currently reside in central California and are working on their exit plan. Their children consist of several rescue dogs and a couple of cockatoos. The Other Cheek is his first novel.
Since this journey began, there have been countless steps along the way. From setting the tone to exploring the complexity of the characters, then navigating the curvy (and uphill!) path to securing rights to lyrics from music publishers, the actual writing, editing, rewriting, re-editing...and now, publishing! Whew! It's been a ride... Thanks for your patience, everybody. I think it'll be worth the wait! ~ Jafe
