John Coutelier is the author of the sci-fi adventure mystery ‘Jen Air: The Little Queen’, now an ongoing series that follows the adventures of Jennifer Airhart, her childhood friend and teenage bully Kaya Cade, the fearsome changeling Tenley Tych, and many other friends.
All his life he’s been drawn to mysteries, whether they be the mysteries of science, the paranormal, history or dressage – never been able to figure that one out. He has a very broad range of interests such as art and astronomy, video games and origami. Naturally he has a very strong interest in all things fantasy and science fiction related, whether they be books, films, games, or comic books. He is an avid collector of toys, merchandise and all sorts of tat.
Growing up with shows like Star Trek, Doctor Who and Blakes 7, the other major influences on his work are HG Wells, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman and Douglas Adams. In fact there are many, many more, such as Clarke, Asimov, Crichton and Carl Sagan… the list is far too long really.
As a young boy, he read a magazine called The Unexplained, and then started a club at school to hunt for ghosts, aliens and bigfoot.
He never found them, but he still has the magazine and the camera and binoculars.
