About John

On the lam. Can't say too much or I'll have to eliminate a few people. Truth is I was a musician for decades, then a teacher of languages in high schools, all the while honing my craft (Is that the right word, "honing"?). Now I am aflame with the desire to make other people recognize the unique insights that I can offer to characters and storytelling (Is that the right word, "unique"?). If that doesn't work out, well, I shave with an open razor and have a hot bath running....

Unique traits: untrustworthy, resentful, spiteful, vindictive, easily offended, irritated, irritating, cheap, vindictive, vicious, angry, aggressive, manipulative, and vindictive, BUT people love me in spite of it all. My psychiatrist told me so. I wanted to thank her and hug her but the straps on my jacket are too tight.
