Jason has been telling stories his entire life. He entered the professional writing world at eight years old, joining his mother's formal critique group as a participating member. Since that time, he has written over half a dozen stories in all genres, from murder mystery to high fantasy, children's adventure to historical fiction. Finding Scrooge is the first of these manuscripts to reach publication, with many more set to follow. His non-fiction work has also been widely read online. In addition to fiction writing, Jason is a speaker, songwriter, and computer programmer. A traumatic brain injury at age 16 fundamentally changed his outlook on life, ultimately turning his focus to communication and education. The unique blend of these passions, paired with a broad academic background, flavors everything he creates.
"If you've ever wanted to know what happened to Scrooge, Tiny Tim et al after A Christmas Carol, you can find out here! A lovely addition to the Christmas season, written by Jason C McDonald." -Lucinda Dickens Hawksley (Author, Lecturer, Dickens Expert and Descendent)"I love the original Christmas Carol, so I was anxious to read Finding Scrooge, to see what it was like. When I did, I found a different Ebenezer Scrooge, a man who had been changed by his visit from the Spirit of Christmas. A man who was actually likable...Finding Scrooge is a delightful story. I strongly recommend it." - Barbara Warren (Author, Editor)"Jason has done a superb job with this novella about Scrooge and his family, friends, and colleagues after his one night experience with the 3 Spirits. This is a well researched, well-presented book in the 'Dickensian' style...I highly recommend this excellent, emotional, and well written book to everyone!" - Dr. Joseph Hageman (Member of Dickens Society and Dickens Fellowship)
