John W Partington


I have been writing for most of my life: as a child, as a soldier, and now as an independent author. My favourite colour is purple. I have two cats, who choose to annoy me most when I am trying to write. I'm a middle aged white dude suffering from psychosis, but with medication am perfectly stable (except for singing to my cats).

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It has given me hope and an audience. I make enough in royalties to occasionally pay my Netflix bill, but the joy is in the writing, not the reward.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being surprised by what my characters do. I plan for them to go one way on an adventure, and they sometimes don't go there.
