My name is John V. Diehl, Jr. I was born and raised in Pecos, Texas. I graduated from Pecos High School in 1994. I have worked as a correctional officer, security officer, the front desk clerk of a hotel, and was even a Group Manager at an Alco in Ulysses, Kansas.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was a vampire novel called 'Vampire Hunters: Destiny'. I hand wrote it back in 1990 while I was a Freshman in high school. The original story is long lost, but a few pieces of it live on in my first published novel 'Fantasy Game: The Temple of Dreams' and the third act, though rewritten, lives on in a future series I am working on.
