I've spent my working career in finance and banking. Writing is a new endeavor, but I've been a voracious reader all my life. Scifi, fantasy, thriller, horror, it's all good. But I keep coming back to urban fantasy and that's what I've chosen to write.
I forge knives, study Brazilian Jiujitsu, and help run an outdoor education center (www.ndcenter.org) in my spare time, which is whatever is left over after two teens and my wife get done with me.
“John Conroe's first book does more than display his familiarity with the currently popular sub-genre of vampire stories. It also showcases a truly individual and engaging storytelling voice. With intelligence and sly humor, Conroe has crafted a tale that is more than mere genre fiction. It's a truly engaging and rewarding read.” – Joseph Bruchac, award winning author of The Skeleton Man and co-author of the best selling Keepers of the Earth series.

Hi just one to day that I am really a big fan of fantasy books especially Urban Fantasy. I had a chance to read God Touched the 1st book in the series & really loved it so I had to get the rest.
I read all the 4 books in the series back to back during a weekend & loved all of them
All of the books are well plotted & I really enjoyed them & would recommend them to others as well.

Overall Feedback: Conroe has made the transition from God Touched to Demon Driver skillfully and flawlessly. We find Chris picking up seven months later and he is coming into his own. I felt the overall book was a very enjoyable fast pace adventure with a little touch of romance and fantasy all rolled into one. This is a must have and the third in the series will be next on my review list.
Point of View: The point of view is pretty standard for this genre but adds to the appeal.
Voice: As part two of a series the voice carries through and endears the reader.
Character Development: The fast pace of the book makes character development kind of sticky. The character seems to build power fast but this keeps the pace going at the speed of light.
Plot: Straightforward, concise and moves from book one to two without flaw.
Dialogue: First catch your breath. Okay so the dialogue is fast, but it builds the characters and helps the reader relate. So I say A+ here too.
Pacing: Without a doubt the pace is blisteringly fast. You will be turning pages faster than you thought you could read.
Setting: Conroe paints a good picture of the world his characters live in but maybe could have added a little more detail but he effectively gives the reader a good idea.
Continuity: Conroe does an excellant job of moving the series forward and leaving enough room to create a curosity for the reader of what comes next.
