About this author

Hello. Thanks for visiting my author page here on Goodreads. In case you don't know me, I'm John Marco and I'm a fantasy writer. I've written seven books so far, including the Tyrants and Kings trilogy and the books of the Bronze Knight Lukien. My next book, The Forever Knight, is due out in April 2013. I also write short stories from time to time, and these you can find at Amazon. Like a lot of fantasy fans, I'm a proud nerd and often blog about nerdy things over at my blog--thehappynerd.com. Or, if it's easier for you to remember, just type in johnmarco.com and that will take you over to my blog as well. Hope to see you there!

I'm still working on that sequel, which for those who don't know is called THE WALKER BETWEEN THE WORLDS. So I really can't say when it will be out. The next book out from me will be THE BLOODY CHORUS, which comes out in November.(less)

So, this is a tough one, because it brings up a lot of personal feelings. I tend to see a lot of anger in my writing, and that probably comes from when I was younger and went through some stuff at school. I wouldn't call it bullying precisely, but it definitely colored my sense of justice, which you see in characters like Lukien. But of course I've had a lot of good things happen to me--great family, lots of love, that sort of thing--and I do think that influences my writing as well. I tend to be a pretty emotional person, and very internal, so that makes my stories more character driven, and less plot driven. (less)

So as we tick ever closer to the new Star Wars movie, the release of Disney Infinity 3.0 has my son all excited about Start Wars again. We started talking about it today and I remembered this very cool cartoon series from around 2003--the original Clone Wars cartoon. This isn't the clunky one they did later on CN, but the original shorts that have been pretty much forgotten now since they're n... Read more of this blog post »

Rami I'm sure I will enjoy The Forever Knight immensely! My reaction on seeing your name on the cover, and the dawning of my realization that it was Lukien I was looking at, was thankfully unobserved, ahaha!

John Marco Hello! If anyone would like a postcard featuring the cover art for THE FOREVER KNIGHT, feel free to message me. They look mighty cool.
