John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn’t kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.

As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel’s skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad’s fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)

As a teenager, John spent most o

“The flowers like me back.”
John H. Carroll, Rojuun

“There were glowing pumpkins and ghost lights in the yard and cheerful looking spiders and vampire posters everywhere.  “This is just disgusting,” Abel said in disgust, landing on a happy mummy poster staked in the yard.  “Must everything be commercialized these days?  I’m surprised the vampires don’t sparkle.”
John H. Carroll, Unholy Cow

“Runyx hated cherubs.  They were little jerks that ran around in diapers and shot things for no apparent reason.”

John Carroll I understand that completely. My wife ran through mine and she was afraid I would get upset if she said anything negative, lol. Once she realized that I was receptive to the critizism she gave me some really good advice.

Don't stress too much if you're behind. If you really enjoy writing, it's a lifetime thing I've found. setting goals for being at a certain point is good, but remember to forgive yourself if you don't make it. Deadlines can take some of the fun out of it.

Anyway, back to writing for me. *grin* 3 chapters left in the book and it's the exciting part. It's even more fun writing the part you can't put down than it is reading it.

John Carroll Hi Molly.

I put it on there because I noticed you're just starting out and no one's read it. I'm finishing my second book at the moment so I probably won't read until January. After that I plan on at least reading a little bit.

If I don't like it, I'll at least let you know why, whether it's just not my style or if I feel there's something that can be improved . . . if you like. :)

It's hard to get people to start reading and giving their opinions, so I like to help when I can.

I wish you the best. :)
