Thanks for coming to my site. It means a lot to me.

So . . . about me: I’ve known I wanted to be an author since I was 9. Life got in the way, though. Specifically, I finished college, landed my first newspaper job, got married, got divorced, raised my three amazing kids with my wonderful ex. Turns out, life’s a lot of work. During this entire time, I was employed as a full-time writer, strictly nonfiction—though dramatic nonfiction, I like to think.

Anyway, when my kids got old enough, around my 50th birthday, I was able to devote the time necessary to write a novel. So I did. Little did I know how much time would be “necessary.” Why didn’t someone warn me writing a novel’s so hard?

A Danger to God Himself is my first book, written almost entirely at a coffee shop in Puyallup, Washington, and a bar in Tacoma, Washington—mornings and nights, respectively.

"I work with people who have schizophrenia and have suffered with it for years myself. Everyone's experience is individual, but John's description of his mission companion is exactly what it is like. I myself was brought up in the LDS religion and John makes it very clear the dysfunction and hypocrisy that exists in the church. This book has a way of facing the truth and dark reality that is so easy to deny. It is humorous and profound.”
