John Worman presents a epic story of courage and romance as a young man tries to find spirituality in a world that oppresses him. This is the ultimate Vision Quest.


Background Information

John Worman was born in Southern California, to his great surprise. Actually he wanted to come from Santa Fe, New Mexico, but his parents had other ideas. At the age of nine, East Los Angeles became his home. John was educated in the public school system, studied violin and was constantly chased by the local gangs. He tried his hand at college only to find his male hormones too overwhelming. John’s salvation was a mentor who insisted that everything inside him was human. John began studying the world’s great religions in his early twenties.

John was fascinated by the Space Race and reasoned that through unique employment opportunities he might meet some exciting people. However, the closest he got to space was x-ray astronomy, gamma-ray moon-mapping, simulating the Martian atmosphere and getting a nose length away from Apollo moon-rocks. Finally he came to his senses and took the next freight out of town. He landed in the desert southwest of Tucson, Arizona, where he built his own house and finished his college degree.

Today, John still enjoys playing the violin. But his main occupation remains engineering. He has written many technical articles and a few fiction works. For recreation, he hits the ski slopes and has also been seen sailing a catamaran in the French Antilles. The closest he gets to Space is when he’s flying a Cessna 182.

John is currently working on his next novel, The Bottom Line. It’s a story about a Harvard MBA who loses everything and finds his soul.

The Frog King
The Frog King” is a fairytale about finding “Soul.” In our modern world there are so many factors that attempt to estrange the soul from our essential being, the public schools, the everyday work place to name a few. When this happens we become neo-stoic; a belief that humankind should be free from passion, unmoved by grief or joy, indifferent to pleasure or pain, and able to submit without complaint to the unavoidable necessity by which all things are governed. Sound familiar?
