Throughout his life, John has sought far-flung locations around the planet to observe and photograph wildlife, from Africa to Australia and from Canada to South America.  His photographs capture the essence of his subjects. His writing draws from many life experiences as a physical therapist, naturalist, dolphin researcher, sea kayaker, SCUBA diver, and adventure trip leader. His novels are filled with memorable characters, sharp dialogue, and a sense of place, making for page-turning stories that are hard to put down.

John lives in Tucson, Arizona, with his marine biologist/artist wife, Katie Iverson, and two chows, Jet and Ri-Lee. Since 2006, their backyard, named “Jurassic Cafe,” has become a favorite dining location for local birds, reptiles and other desert denizens.
