Gage is a student at Musselman High School in Inwood, WV. He is the second of four children and a lover of science and his cat Comet. Gage published his first children's book, "The Adventures of Comet: Comet Blasts Off!"  in July, 2014 at the age of 10. “Comet Dives Deep!” followed in 2015, and “Comet Rides West” was released in the fall of 2016. Hot off the press is “Jurassic Journey,” a book requested by many of Gage’s readers.

Gage gives presentations on the value of reading and writing to school students all over the eastern United States. Gage is currently teaming with illustrator Melissa Bailey on the beginning stages of the fifth book in the Comet series.
