Jafe Danbury hails from the trenches of the Hollywood production scene, where he spent decades as a camera operator, director of photography, and director. He has also worked as a teacher and is a decorated U.S. Navy veteran.
He enjoys noodling on the guitar, long road trips, likes his bacon crispy, and loves a good dive bar––especially if it happens to have a twenty-two-foot shuffleboard table. He prefers a leisurely walk to running, unless being chased by a clown with a chainsaw.
His debut novel, THE OTHER CHEEK, was awarded a Finalist Medal for "Best First Novel" in the 2020 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. His riveting follow-up novel, LEAVING PHOENIX, is garnering great reviews and is currently being adapted as a screenplay. It's been called, "A high-octane thriller with lots of heart and something to say!"
Jafe and his lovely bride currently reside in central California and are working on their exit plan. Their children consist of several rescue dogs and a couple of cockatoos.

Some of the Reviews the author received
A crime thriller, yes, but also psychological and very deep. A girl who led a normal life had to face danger only because of her curiosity to find her origins. In a way, we might think why would she do it, but them...well, it is human to want to know where are you coming from. I liked the author's writing and the character development. I will check for more books from him. Rating - 5, well deserved, stars.
LEAVING PHOENIX by Jafe Danbury was an incredible novel. He has a compelling writing style, detailed and spot-on, keeping on edge or chilled - all in the right moment. I felt like I was with Phoebe during her journey, I loved how she grew and coped with the secrets of the family. A novel you should experience! Recommended.
Phoebe's story is breathtaking. I was rooting for her throughout the entire novel. Her search for her biological parents was really thrilling. I absolutely loved this book. I highly recommend it.
