NAME: Jared Vaughn
KNOWN FOR: The Longest Time
Jared Vaughn was born with a creative nature that has taken a variety of forms over the years in writing and performing. Of all his creative pursuits, he never wrote a book...until now. His first novel, The Longest Time, was originally conceived in 1999. The idea kept surfacing through the years, until the time came to finally pursue this dream. Real life experience and creative practice have shaped the original story into something much better than first envisioned. This idea has become the beginning of a series exploring the power of love, hope, and following your dreams. Jared has also caught the cosplay bug, buzzing in as Marty McFly on Back to the Future Day, October 21st, 2015. Since then, his costumes have increased and improved, as well as friends joining the fun. Whether he's riding a hoverboard or writing a story, Jared Vaughn encourages you to take Doc's advice--"The future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one."
