John Schweingrouber


Thanks for checking out my books and bio on Smashwords. I began my writing career in early 2000 when I found myself between jobs. Having been a big fan of the horror genre, I found that writing horror for my first project, L&L I, the Night Walker, came easier than other story lines I had unsuccessfully tried.

A few great characters and four novels later, I now find that I enjoy the art of writing more and more each day. Learning the craft of writing as I've gone along certainly hasn't been easy. However, at the end of the day I hope that I developed some great characters and stories that have entertained you, although I do not have a team of professional editors and marketing machine behind me.

Thanks again for your time and I hope you were entertained. If you enjoyed one of my books please feel free to leave a comment on Amazon or other sites to help other readers.

    Great character development, great story. It was a suspenseful read with a bit of humor tossed in for good measure.
