About D. W. St.John

Here is where a writer is supposed to tell you all about the exciting things he's done. How he's wrestled crocodiles in Tanzania, bounced drunks in an Amsterdam brothel, smuggled guns to Cuba and sat in as drummer for the Who in Tokyo. Well, I've never done any of that, but hey, nobody's perfect.

My life is much like yours. I'm just another soul shoe horned into a meat puppet biding my time until I return to the one.

These stories are just dreams I lived. If I've done my job even passably well, then you may live them, too.

Review by: Jim Hulse on July 18, 2012 :
Sitting at my computer, I came across this book. It hooked me with its cover, and the word "Nasty" and I am glad it did. I couldn't put it down. The book is chuck full of wonderful advice and tips for anyone writing, or desires to write. I have to rate it extremely high, for it opened my eyes. Thank you. It was an easy read and to the point.

This will offend everyone equally---from writers, to editors, to publishers, to agents---their oxen are all gored here. Couldn't happen to better folks.
