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: So here is the third installment of The Demon Accords and let me tell you... The story has only gotten better. John is a phenomenal author and I can not wait for the next in the series. He has taken a genre that I felt was overdone and gave it some helpful breathes of fresh air. His writing is both captivating and intriguing. You will get lost in this series as quickly as I have.
Point of View: Again Mr. Conroe ( I say John as I like first names, seems friendlier) gives his stories the typical Point of View but he does it masterfully only adding to the fast pace of the read.
Voice: Here John has stepped forward to say there is more to this genre than Twilight or Underworld or even Blade. He has taken this genre twisted it to his will and made his voice heard.
Character Development: Straightforward development that never thins out nor does the reader lose sight or feeling with any character.
Plot: He has carried this series into a third installment without missing a second of plot and each one has it's own subplot to stand on.
Dialogue: No issues with the flow of dialogue as I could garner from my read but I was also too engrossed in the story to care (not really a bad thing right).
Pacing: As stated previously this is fast paced, no holding, back nitrous oxide reading run rampant.
Setting: John is able to carry the setting forward without a hitch and still deliver with a storyline that holds you in awe.
Continuity: Find the first two books and buy them. Okay now you have the first two (God Touched and Demon Driven), now read them. I said read them, okay now read this one. There wasn't that awesome and don't you agree that continuity is not an issue. Okay now go buy the rest and you can thank me later:)
