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.

Overall Feedback: As with all of his novels thus far Conroe exceeds expectations and does a fine job with entertaining us for another chapter in the Demon Accord Series. I would not rate this as the best in the series but I still think it is well worth the read.
Point of View: Only adds to the storyline and stays within the concept of the series.
Voice: Stays in line with the series and drives the reader through in a flash.
Character Development: By now we already know the characters but just when you are happy in your knowledge Conroe brings in some more details.
Plot: Perfectly aligned with the series and shows that the Author paid attention to the series overall and not just to each story. Only issue is some things were left unsaid and a novice gun owner would be a bit confused.
Dialogue: Flawless as expected by this author.
Pacing: Again lightning fast and over before you want it to be.
Setting: Conroe is excellant at placing characters in a believable place, time and circumstance.
Continuity: Does not miss a beat and drives home the thought and I my opinion view of the story. "How would you deal with loss?"
