Gage Fears started writing at an early age, alongside multiple forms of art. Though Gage had a troubled adolescence, he stuck to doing the things he enjoyed. After publishing photos of an abandoned radio station in Arkansas, he was noticed by Abandoned Arkansas. The rest is history. Gage is a member of three historical societies, an ordained minister, TWIC card holder, multi-instrumentalist, and military fanatic/historian. He is a contributor to the National Cold War Center; the Jacksonville Museum of Military History in Jacksonville, Arkansas; and the Rock and Roll Highway 67 Museum in Newport, Arkansas. Gage is a historical preservationist, just like his grandmother.
