John Noel Hampton


I was born in the tiny town of Buckingham, Illinois. Since the town had only 100 inhabitants, our family of 12 counted for over 10% of the population. I studied painting, drawing and sculpture after high school but didn't feel like starving for a living so I moved on, eventually doing disaster relief work for the Federal Government. I survived a long tour of duty with the U. S. Army in Viet Nam, then went on to become a senior vice president in charge of branch operations with a major bank in Los Angeles for over 25 years before taking up writing.

I lived in the Hollywood Hills for most of my banking life, but now I'm happy to reside in beautiful Palm Springs, California where I write when I’m not walking my dogs and enjoy reading, travel and dining with friends. I’ve written 2 novels, 5 screenplays and a few short stories. The screenplay version of this novel "The Wrong Bus" has been optioned twice with an Academy Award winning actress attached to play one of the leading roles.
