John Aalborg


John Aalborg is a traveling, card-carrying member of the working class who can write. Thanks to the invention of the portable laptop, he has been able to type his hard-boiled, originally handwritten crime novels into digital form. (Several of these books are also available as quality paperbacks at Amazon). Along with internationally published "over the road" articles (including NEWSWEEK and COSMOPOLITAN) Aalborg wrote the entire Axel McKay radio-play series aired coast-to-coast, numerous magazine publications of trucking experiences in foreign countries, and continues to write a monthly road column by "Mo'hammer and Cheater". Never boring and often controversial, Aalborg's pithy and morally suspect characters, both male and female, bring the reader into a world rarely seen.
Aalborg has spent his life working jobs rich in personal experience: three years living off the German black market and culminating in his being deported back to the USA (without his iconic, antique, Mercedes roadster); five years as a licensed locksmith in the City of Miami, where many of his less ethical assignments were for law enforcement; five years as an EMT for a rural Florida hospital and ambulance crew; many more years driving OTR (interstate) for long-haul trucking companies; with winter respites from the road by working the graveyard shift at local fuel-stops on exits off I-10, where he packed a gun and took care of his own law enforcement.
In other words, Aalborg can take you into worlds the average person would love to get a peek at, but preferably at a distance and in the comfort of an armchair.
Update: Since retiring from driving big trucks, Aalborg has retired his social life as well, and now writes full-time. He does his best to keep his location and contact numbers secret and has pulled himself from Facebook and the like. His next crime novel, however, will be out in paperback in February 2016 and serialized as eBook episodes here at Smashwords, the first one or two segments free. -- Update by Cheater, Bleep-Free Press 16.December.2015

Smashwords book reviews by John Aalborg

  • Smashwords Style Guide on June 10, 2016

    Everything covered AFAIK including changing justification to Left for eBooks. One thing missing: instructions for hyphenation. Since eBbooks are read on different size screens, should anything be auto-hyphenated in a Word doc originally formatted for a print book?
