About John

A lifelong Coloradoan, John graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 1996 with a degree in Business Administration and Computer Information Systems. He spent the next sixteen years developing accounting software and Internet-based, workflow collaboration solutions.

johnWith a thirst for creative expression that went beyond the logic and absolutes of computer programming, John developed an interest in writing. His early work included newspaper editorials, and film and television reviews for entertainment websites. He later became drawn toward more substantive commentary on world events.

He currently writes political, cultural, and media-analysis columns for the website of Bernard Goldberg, former CBS News journalist and New York Times bestselling author. He’s also a writing contributor to Paste Magazine and National Review.

John felt compelled to take his writing to the next level after watching a television interview with former NFL football player, Tim Green. Inspired by Green’s career transition from a professional athlete to an accomplished author, John found the motivation to begin work on his first novel, From a Dead Sleep.

From a Dead Sleep was published in 2013, and its follow-up, Blood Trade, was published in 2015. The third book in the Sean Coleman Thriller series, Broken Slate, will be released in 2017, and John is currently working on the fourth.

John lives in Greeley, Colorado with his wife and two children.
