What is the Colorado Switchblade?
The Colorado Switchblade is the personal outlet for Jason Van Tatenhove.
About the Author
Raised by artists and computer programmers, Jason Van Tatenhove gravitated toward Colorado's punk and grunge scenes. His literary hero was Hunter S. Thompson.
Jason Van Tatenhove is an author, writer, and professional artist living with his family in the high mountain town of Colorado.
He has attended three universities for fine artwork, dropping out of each.
Jason was raised in a creative family. A third-generation artist and writer. His grandfather was a member of the Abstract Expressionist Movement in NYC in the ’50s and ’60s. Jason shows his fine contemporary artworks in galleries in Denver.
Jason was a staff writer for a local newspaper before launching his regional news outlet.
He lives with his girls, a pet wolf, and two cats in a world of creative chaos and beauty.
Subscribing for less than a cup of coffee a month directly supports my family and allows me to continue bringing you the creative projects I am cooking up.
Here you will find stories about local life in a small Colorado mountain town, new fiction, podcasts about national and regional issues, updates on new books and series Jason is developing, and keep up to date on significant media appearances, documentaries, and national speaking engagements.
