John is currently an Electrical Skilled Tradesman for the University of Michigan. He has over 33 years’ experience in his field. He resides in Southern Michigan with his wife Maryann. He spent four years in the Marine Corp as a 7011 (Aircraft Launch & Recovery Tech). After his tour, he completed a four year Inside Wireman Electrical Apprenticeship with I.B.E.W. (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers).
At a very young age, John developed a love for reading and hoarding books and has continued to do so. It’s not uncommon to see him writing notes about something. John believes inspiration comes from an intentional reading of the Word and following the Lord. He feels it encourages better living and thinking.
He comes to the playing field of writing with no formal writing education. When asked, "why do you over think everything?" his answer is simple: he's slow and methodical when working on projects. He calls himself Over Thinker John for the fun of it.
When John is not working, writing, and reading books of various genres, he is trying his best at being a husband to his wife, father of six, grandfather of seven, brother to four, brother and friend to all, uncle to seven. His goal is to show hope in overcoming adversity through humorous storytelling. He highlights the golden nugget of inspiration to sustain us through discouragement and renew our approach for a better outcome. It's a lifelong skill he's built and shares through his writing.
In addition to John participating in the blogosphere. He occasionally contributes his writing at PublishousNow and Two Drops of Ink : A Literary Blog. Both embrace and encourage you on your writing journey.
