Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Southern California and some of what I write is about that location, but I also write about other places I have been and as I go to new places I incorporate them into my writing.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have had some books published by traditional publishers, but I got tired of them having all the control and I got tired of waiting, plus some of what the small time publishes do to promote your work, you can do yourself.

How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months

I just finished How I sold 1 million eBooks in 5 Months. I learned a lot. I learned what I need to do that I am not and I also learned about things that I am doing wrong. Keep up the good work John.
When David Died (A True Story)
on April 17, 2020
I just finished When David Died. I found it to be a compelling read. As are the rest of John Locke's books, It was well worth the money.

I didn't think I would like this story that much because I am not used to reading the British English, but this story hooked me like a fish and reeled me in. It is a great tale and I highly recommend it.

The Oath Keeper Trilogy - Book Two - The Grooming
on Aug. 22, 2021
this was one of those books that I couldn't stop reading until I reached the end. All though it is a fictional story, it makes you think about there realities we face today. To my knowledge no order as described this book as the Knights of the Way exist, but I wish there was such an organization, because too many of our elected officials care more about their pocket book and their desire for power than they do about our freedoms, their oath of office and the constitution. I recommend this book to anyone who values their freedom as an American.
The Oath Keeper Trilogy - Book Three - The Assumption
on Aug. 26, 2021
This is historical fiction at its best. The tale weaves its way through historical events as the main character and his associates do their best to fight terrorist abroad as well as corruption and treason in our own government. This book will keep you turning the page until the very end.
No Gun's in Little Cavern
on Aug. 29, 2021

The Floating Outfit 5: From Hide and Horn
on Dec. 27, 2021
Another excellent Western by one of the greats. It is a shame that the author is no longer with us. What surprises me is that an author who lived in England could have such great success at bringing the Wild West alive in his fiction. If you like Westerns you'll love this book.

One part of me hates this kind of book. One that is so good I can't stop reading it until I reach the end. As a result somethings don't get done. I loved this book and you will too.
