John Avery lives and writes thrillers on a small ranch in the mountains outside San Diego.
Having written his first story in the first grade, John has had a life long love affair with the craft. His many influences include Larry McMurtry, Cormac McCarthy, Edgar Allen Poe, Mark Twain, Ken Follett, Stephen King, William Faulkner, and Earnest Hemingway.
"My objective as a writer is to entertain, to create fast-paced, well crafted fiction that is both vividly real and slightly surreal, with characters that will scare you, make you laugh, and into whom you may become completely lost."
