About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    Jeffrey, congratulations man! I didn’t get the chance to call you yesterday, but really, this is so huge for your book, and very well deserved! Great job!

    Happy Thanksgiving and I’ll call you on Monday! : )

    So, when they pick a single sentence to quote, out of all the hundreds and thousands of sentences that you wrote in 300-plus pages, do you find yourself thinking, “Oh, man, I remember exactly where and when I was when I wrote that sentence!” or “Oh, man, that’s one of the sentences I was never entirely happy with!” or “Oh, man, I just knew that line would get quoted!” or anything like that? Cuz I know I go through that sometimes when you quote my articles in Film Forum. But, like, books are bigger deals. :)
