Two sips from the cup of human kindness and I'm shitfaced! Laid back, educated, well-traveled, veteran, fun-loving.


Background Information

Author Biography
 Author John R. Austin is from the land of Hemingway and Tennessee Williams. He was born in Key West, Florida on 18 August 1942 and subsequently grew up on this tropical, Southernmost U.S. Island. Being born in a cradle of literary genius just had to endow John with an inkling of talent, right? We shall see…
 
John R. Austin attended Saint Joseph’s elementary/middle School and Mary Immaculate High School in Key West. He graduated with honors. John graduated from the University of Florida in 1965 with an Architectural Degree in Building Construction and later, while on active duty with the U.S. Air Force Engineers, received a Master of Science Degree in Industrial Engineering.
 
John wrote his master’s thesis titled: “A Methods Analysis of the Air Force Engineering Management System of Total Programming” and achieved limited publication within the Air Force engineering community for instructional purposes. In high school he wrote and delivered a state-level, award-winning, American Legion-sponsored speech titled The Constitution---Ours to Defend.
 
John has lived in the countries of China (Taiwan), Germany, Portugal and South Korea. He has lived in the United States in Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Texas and Wisconsin.  
 
Living and interacting with individuals in various foreign countries with diverse cultures and customs and ten different states with different attitudes and outlooks has equipped John with a uniquely incisive and worldly understanding of human nature. 
 
Besides Havana Harvest…When Cuba Was Naughty! John is also structuring two other stories based on his life adventures and travels: Alaskan Cherokee and Taiwan Tango.
