Jobie Hughes was raised in Spencer, Ohio. He was a high school state champion in wrestling, attended Ohio University on an athletic scholarship, and graduated with a degree in business for no other reason than, at age 20, he hadn't the slightest idea of what he wanted to do. What followed were five wayward years earning minimal pay working shitty jobs, several of which he was fired from. He started writing when he was 24 and, at age 27, left capitalism behind and moved to New York City to attend Columbia University’s School of the Arts. He graduated in May 2009 with an MFA in Creative Writing (fiction).
Hughes is the author of three novels, two of which were #1 New York Times Best Sellers and have sold over five million copies worldwide. His work has been translated into 27 languages and published in 49 countries.
He lives in southern New Hampshire.
