about John


What I want people to know about me right out of the gate is that I write books to entertain them. That’s right, my work isn’t deep and dark and plodding—no, I consider that I am what the Beatles sang about, a Paperback Writer. Pulp Fiction—that’s where I dwell and it’s where I want to be. You can expect that I will use every tool I can find in order to grab your attention on page one and keep you turning pages until THE END. You can expect a roller-coaster ride as the book paces along and takes you away.

Now for the meta-data. I live in Southern California, married to Deb, five daughters (yes, I know what it’s like to yearn for my own bathroom with only one key), three dogs, too many guitars to count, and a love of anything outdoors. Right now I live two blocks from the beach and spend long days there, working on an iPad and tasting the salt air in between sips of my Starbucks. For fun, there’s a motor scooter and a three-wheel bicycle that I ride up and down these crowded Ocean Beach streets causing minor traffic jams as I go past. Oh, well.

I have written full time for 28 months and expect to keep writing until the judge turns the lights out. My books have been downloaded one million times and the number keeps racing upward every day.

To say it’s been an unbelievable ride to go from exhausted trial lawyer to energized writer is an understatement. It’s been a dream come true. And I owe it all to my readers. I love each and every one of you. Now, buy a book and keep turning pages!
