I'm John. I have very eclectic tastes and I will read just about anything. I am a full supporter of independent publishing, so if any of you are curious about self-e-publishing, I uploaded a comprehensive how-to right here...


I really enjoy the raw energy of the stories here on WP and I go through a lot of them. Typically, I roam WP stories on my iPad before I go to bed (Sometimes they seem to shape my dreams). Then, while at my computer the next day, I login to Wattpad and vote on all the stories I enjoyed the night before.

Ok, enough about me as the fan, here is some info about me the writer…

One of my characters is called Pandora Driver. She is a vigilante lurking the city streets of the 1930s. She is kind of an ass-kicking Batgirl from the wrong side of the tracks with an unstoppable car. If you like batman, or any of the lady superheroes you might want to peruse Pandora Driver.

My other characters are called Skyracos. Their stories are set in a galaxy far, far, far away. Skyracos are winged warriors encased in metal armor, like flying knights. They try to solve the problems they encounter while invading alien worlds. If you enjoy the powered armor adventures of Ironman, Starship Troopers, Halo or other Space-marines, you might want set your sites on the Skyracos.

You can download ebooks featuring my characters to your iPads, kindles, nooks, kobos, tablets or phones, from just about every bookstore on the web. The anthologies are free.

In other news...

I'm also the inventor of Thumbtraps, a joystick substitute for iPad and tablet gaming. If you’d like to learn more about me or to see more of my stuff, feel free to visit me elsewhere on the web...
