Jeff Cann lives, works, writes, and runs in Gettysburg Pennsylvania. His essays and stories have appeared in the Gettysburg Times and Like the Wind magazine, as well as various blog sites dealing with the topics of mental health and running. Jeff is married with two children.
When he isn’t working, parenting or writing, he can be found hiking or running the wooded trails surrounding Gettysburg; instructing punk-infused indoor-cycle classes; or reading novels and biographical essays.
His first book of personal essays, Fragments – a memoir, was published in April 2016.
