I was born in Philadelphia and grew up just outside of the city. I would imagine that I had a good childhood until my mother died when I was ten and a car hit me when I was twelve and suffered brain damage. Now the brain damage just affected my fine motor controls, so I am all there in the head and have graduated collage with an associates degree in computer sciences.
I dream a lot about places to get away to and doing things that I am not capable of doing. My books help people imagine being at these places and doing the things that I write about.
The Night Watchman starts out where my life has brought me until the character in this book gets his driver's license. Throughout the book I lightly point out the difficulties I have had and seen with people who have had such trauma. I have had first hand experiences, so I can describe them in the first person.
J. L. Manning has published "Changing the Little Things" that he has put his experiences in. this book will help you change your life.
"The Night Watchman" in the past he has written three books about the not-too-distant future of Mars inhabitants. He has written a book about an island in the South Pacific where strange things are happening. Manning started writing to get away from the tragedies of his life and there have been many.
