Quiz WriterJake

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Did you know?

The Duke

Many of us today associate John Wayne with the American West. In fact, though, he was born in Iowa. And, actually, he was educated at the University of Southern California. He was a consummate actor though. He received his first leading role in The Big Trail in his early 20s. His next big break came from working with John Ford in 1939’s Stagecoach. The actor would work with Ford several times more. Born Marion Robert Morrison, this iconic actor had the screen name of John Wayne, but he was also known as “The Duke.” Although he was active on-screen over nearly 40 years, he didn’t win an Academy Award until 1969. He died in Los Angeles of cancer in 1979.
