Hi, I’m John. I’m a husband, father, dog-walker and storyteller from small-town Ontario, Canada.
My first pro fiction sale was MARKED MEN, in the Martin H. Greenburg and John Helfers anthology Slipstreams, published by DAW.
Serving Worlds, the name of this site and blog, was also the name of my first podcast: a short fiction collection. My first novel was ENEMY LINES. I have completed 5 more, and am in the arduous process of publishing them now.
I’m a huge supporter of independent artists. I released PODCAST TEARDOWN, a podcast featuring eleven popular podcast novelists, to document the work involved. I love telling stories with words and narrating them for audiobook release. Sometimes I tell other people’s stories, too. I am the creator and editor of a shared world called the Flames universe, where I get to play with other authors.
Ebooks have been a love of mine since the first serial novel blogs and PDF promotions. I believe a writer’s first responsibility is to entertain the reader or listener, not a distributor or chain of bookstores. For the first time in history, that can happen.
