Jack Kupper, 13. of Surprise recently sold his first short story, called “The War of the Centuries,” to iGeneration Youth magazine, after getting a COVID-19-related article picked up by MSN last fall at age 12.
The family is fairly new to Surprise and is a military family. Jack’s father, Nick, was featured on American Ninja Warrior in 2018.
“I’m incredibly proud of Jack for his intelligence and positive attitude in the midst of yet another move,” stated his mother, Crystal, in an email. “He’s about halfway done with his first fantasy novel and is planning on pitching it to publishers when he finishes.”
