For those of you who would like to sample my writing check out my www.johnpirillo.com site, I have a free novel I blog every day and tons of free stories and other things thing.
I cut my teeth on the old sci-fi pulps and such great authors as Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Tolkien, Edgar Rice Burroughs and so many, many others.
I've been writing since 7th grade.
I graduated from the California Institute of the Arts in California with an M.F.A. in experimental animation, which should tell you that I love abstract art and animation.
I have taught meditation for a living, traveled around the world, had my own animation business, and currently teach middle school as well as write in every spare moment I have, which also includes doing artwork of the digital kind which I incorporate in my writing as well as animation.
I am a spiritual person and believe quite strongly that the path of love and kindness is the best way to live one's life. I will also admit to making mistakes. Something that happens as we grow up, and since we never stop growing (at least I haven't), then we can always keep learning, which means also making mistakes.Just don't want to keep making the same ones.
I have a lovely daughter and three grand children and live in one of the hottest places in America, Las Vegas,Nevada.
