John Akers


John Akers was born in West Virginia and grew up in the small community of Ronda, on Cabin Creek. He spent his youth roaming the ‘hills and hollers’ near his home.

An avid outdoorsman from an early age, John has driven through all of the lower forty-eight and most of Canada and Alaska, hiking, hunting, fishing, and exploring the diverse mountains and valleys. His desire to travel these trails alone has helped inspire his first novel, West of the Midnight Sun.

John, now enjoying retirement, lives in Charleston, West Virginia, along with his wife, Lynn, collecting antique bottles, artifacts and tinkering in his shop. He still finds time to roam the ‘hills and hollers’ that claimed his heart.
