John Day

Biography

Dear readers,
If you were to spend years writing great books and hearing nothing back, I think you would be rather disappointed with the human race. I put my books out there for free, for your benefit, not mine.
When you download them, read them and enjoy them, at least do the decent thing and write a review. Even if it is just "A great read, thanks John." It would mean so much to me and encourage me to keep writing.
If you just downloaded the books, because they are free and don't bother to read them, seek medical help. Hoarding does neither of us any good. You don't get a great read and I have no idea if you loved or hated the books. I will assume you hated them and become broken hearted and depressed.

Now a bit about me. I have no idea why you would want to read this, but authors are supposed to write this crap.

Born in England he spent most of his working life there running his own businesses. In 2005 he and his wife Carole, moved to the beautiful Channel Island of Alderney.
Inspired by a dream one night whilst on holiday, perhaps it was the wine maybe the rich food, we shall never know, the sudden desire to write surged through his active loins.
Expect to read fast paced stories with an unusual plot.
Amongst his other interests are Photography or as he likes to describe himself, a Happy Snapper! His photo website has a remarkably large following.
Adventurous by nature, John Day has had some very close calls. Occasionally life has been quite cruel, but his knack of turning adversity into advantage has served him well. His experience of life shines through in his writing.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I find the planning and plotting to be immensely stimulating.
When I am developing the story, at night when I am asleep, I dream the story. It is so real, I feel I am there.
Just think, you get to do everything you could want and you cannot get killed off, arrested or in trouble with the wife.
What do your fans mean to you?
If I knew I had some, that would be awesome.
To know they enjoyed my stories would be all the reward I could hope for.
It is tax free as well.
