J.E. Marshall was born in the North Georgia Mountains and relocated with his mother to middle Georgia when she married his stepfather. I remember always having a very vivid imagination growing up. I would come up with skits, story lines and anything else that would spark my creative side. Around the age of thirteen, I began creating different characters with my best friend, Felicia, and acting out different story lines for them. My very first male character that I gave life to was Christien James. He is by far the most complicated and intricate character I have created, though he will not be the last.
