John Blasé is a literary agent with The Bindery. He spent over a decade as an editor and ghostwriter in traditional publishing working with such names as Eugene Peterson, Ann Voskamp, and Brian Zahnd. During that time, he penned two books with his name on the spine—one of them a self-published poetry endeavor titled The Jubilee. At the end of the day, he tries to live by writer George Saunders’ advice: “Stop trying to teach the world something and instead refuse to be boring.”
John and his wife, Meredith, have lived in Monument, Colorado, for almost twenty years. They have three children, all grown now and out living their one wild and precious lives. A long-time fitness aficionado, John earned his CF-L1 certificate in 2019, which allows him the opportunity to coach CrossFit classes each week.
John’s long been a culture junkie hooked on everything from the drama of “Hill Street Blues” (which dates him) to the wonder of Game of Thrones to the thoughts of Ta-Nehisi Coates to the poetry of Taylor Swift. And he still mourns the loss of Anthony Bourdain. While loving all genres of literature, he admits a weakness for fiction, short stories, and memoir. A good story, well-told, he simply finds hard to resist.
