Living a Dream With Passion

It took Jon 66 years to start writing his first book. Now that he has published his second book and lived his dream and his passion, he claims his fondest wish is to die while typing on his keyboard.

Jon's first two books are war-related. He writes stories about people who never give up and people who are willing to fight. His personal belief is that each of us is given a life worth fighting for, not just at war, but also here at home as parents and friends who care. If you don't fight for life, you don't have a life.

Jon has written diverse and richly detailed stories. He loves humor, emotion, and passion. He also loves strong and weak characters, a diversity of plots, and romantic stories. He writes about people who come from behind to accomplish amazing things. Jon is into fitness and has edited and contributed to fitness magazines. He also worked at a community college as a communications specialist designing manuals and as an information director for a government agency.
