About John DeJordy

What can I say about myself? I was born in Ohio, but grew up in Holyoke in the 70's and half of the 80's, when computers were still in their infancy. As such, most my youthful free time was taken up reading, or using my imagination to go exploring.

My first exposure to fantasy actually came from my chemistry teacher, who unique teaching method left a lasting impression. He also ran the school's "Dungeon's and Dragons" club. That exposure unlocked something inside me, creating
a deeper passion for the art of writing.

I am the type of person that when he puts his mind to something, it gets done. I went on to get a computer science degree. I hold a Massachusetts Real Estate Salesperson License. I've held many jobs, did many things, explored a small
part of the world in my travels, and yet, I've always kept that passion for the written word.

I have many passions. I explore game worlds such as those created by Sony Online Entertainment and others. I enjoy the challenge of board and thinking games like chess or Sudoku. As, if my health allows, I enjoy a stroll through the woods
for even passion is stronger than pain sometimes.

As I go on, trying to get published, I hope you can journey with me as we explore the worlds I intend to create for you.

If anything, it will be an interesting ride.

Review by: David Silver on Feb. 28, 2012 :
A positively charming book. The characters are likable and animated. It is aimed at younger audiences, so I forgive some bluntness, but there is a hint of subtle symbolism to be found lurking in the corners. Quite enjoyable and worth the buy, would recommend to others.

A positively charming book. The characters are likable and animated. It is aimed at younger audiences, so don't expect too much subtlety, but there's a hint to be seen there. Worth the buy and would recommend to others.
