Jerrimiah Stonecastle, a New York transplant, and former NYPD investigator was born and raised in the slums of The Bronx. He was raised by a single mom who struggled to put him, and his three sisters, through private school while working as an NYC teacher; all while earning her Master’s Degree.
Jerrimiah did not share her drive for academic achievements, so after graduating from prestigious Power Memorial Academy, he dropped out of college in his freshman year and joined the army where he became a combat medic.
Upon his honorable discharge, he returned to New York where he worked for the Chief Medical Examiner’s office as a medical stenographer. It was there he saw horrors that no words could adequately describe. He joined the NYPD where he witnessed more horrors, but also saw the love and dedication of those who wanted only to preserve life.
He discovered his love of writing at an early age. Many a young girl was the recipient of his romantic poems. During a poetry forum, sponsored by Lehman College, he wrote and recited a poem called, The Rose. He received a standing ovation and signed the release to the school’s publication.
While working for NYPD, he started a satire laced newsletter that wound up circulated throughout the Detective Bureau.
After trying, and failing to have a crime novel published the traditional way, he joined the Indie revolution and published the An Angel Among Demons crime novellas in 2013. In 2016, after publishing six books, he started Stonecastle Publications LLC.
His first full length, adult fiction novel “FRANKENSTINA” was released on Halloween, 2018 and has been received with positive acclaim.
A father of four, he makes his home now in south Florida, where he runs Stonecastle Publications with a virtual staff.
His company motto is:
“Throwing Stones at a Glass House”
