John Rhoades is a firm believer in the Bible, an ardent supporter of the U.S. Constitution, and a defender of liberty. The views expressed in his books are not necessarily his own. After all, he can hardly be expected to share the values of a demon. It would reflect extremely poorly on his church if he did. It has been noted, however, that the foolishness of some of the characters in his books are all his own.

May 18, 2013- After a long hiatus I finally uploaded the full book! Magic School U.S.A: Easy "A"
I hope you all enjoy the FULL story as much as you enjoyed the 6 chapter book!
Tricks of the Trade- Is only the first 6 chapters of the full American Magic School book. I found this floating on many websites that I did not authorize. You can download this book if you want but understand it is only the first 6 chapters (and even those 6 chapters have been changed and edited more), so you can just see this as a longer sample book!
The Sample Book- Newly uploaded, just a nice sample chapter to wet your taste buds for the full novel! :)

Raised a Holy Roman Catholic from the Empire State, his early life consisted of an indentureship with the local Archdiocese--as an alter boy--before lapsing into an All-American Athlete who counter-cultured his way towards a university degree in Alternative Education. Despite this impediment, he holistically morphed into a high-flying corporate executive within the American industrial complex.

He was born on the North West coast of the US in the late 40's. Addicted to horror movies, he spent hours absorbing everything that induces a sense of terror and fright in people. He was afraid of the dark as a child and this fear of the dark served to heighten his insight into those things that frighten people.
As a voracious reader, he delighted in finding unique ways of describing the most mundane things. "Words must have a taste or they are useless" is a phrase friends frequently heard him mutter as he read anything from advertisements to Stephen King.

When M dot Strange touched down in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival in January 2007 for the world premiere of his first animated feature, We Are the Strange, thousands of Internet-obsessed teens and twentysomethings already knew more about the film than any buyer at the festival. For months M dot had been leaking footage and behind-the-scenes featurettes of the film to YouTube, and once he was accepted to Sundance he put up the trailer. It got 500,000 views in four days. Not bad for a guy who made a movie in his bedroom.
