Author Name: Pierce Askegren

John Pierce Askegren (1955 - November, 2006), of the Louisiana Askegrens, was an American author best known for his work in adaptations of licensed properties and is a lifelong comic book fan. His life began in the circus where his parents performed as high wire walkers. After a tragic fall at the age of 11, Askegren broke his hip and began his life-long affinity for Tab Soda. After his father took a job with a railroad company, Askegren’s parents finally settled in a small Northern Virginia town where he non-eventfully finished Junior High and High School. He attended Madison College in the early 1970s where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts. During his college years, Askegren, dabbled in a singing career in and around the Shenandoah Valley and Washington D.C. areas.
After a chance meeting with millionaire Herbert Haft, chairman and chief operating officer of the Dart Group, Askegren went to work at Crown Books. His time at Crown Books was tumultuous as he moved from store to store, finally ending up at the unglamorous Rolling Valley Mall location. He finally left during the late 1980s and went to work in the Defense Industry where he has been a logistician, editor, and technical writer.
Askegren died suddenly shortly before Thanksgiving of 2006.
