More About the Author

John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn't kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.

As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel's skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad's fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)

As a teenager, John spent most of his time driving wherever he could in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the road, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He was the captain of the chess team, lettered in golf and band while in high school, and wasn't beaten up anywhere near as much as one might imagine.

As an adult, John spends most of his time staring at a computer screen in an attempt to avoid people. He stares at the monitor for hours, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He has been married to his wonderful wife for sixteen years and they have three obnoxio . . . wonderful children who always behave . . . when they're asleep.

Emo bunny minions surround John at most times. He is their imaginary friend and they look to him for guidance. At one point, they took over the world. No one noticed because they left everything exactly as it was. They gave the world back after a week because it was depressing.

The Willden Trilogy is his first endeavor into the field of writing. Other series and standalone works will be forthcoming. In addition, John has written a number of short stories that can be found at most eBook sites. He writes in the evenings and weekends whenever possible. Regrettably, the family mentioned in a previous paragraph desires food and shelter, requiring the author to possess a full time job until his writing makes him rich.

I downloaded this book on a whim, and I am so glad I did. From the begining, when the Sugar Plum Fairies were hiding under a non-christmas tree, I started laughing and didnt stop when the elves were attacked with the sugar plums and Santa, well read the book. It is a quick entertaining little tale for demented adults.

Though I downloaded the "Demented" books to read to my niece, I've been enjoying them myself.

"Attack of the Sugar Plum Fairies" is a cute story about the Fairies attacking Santa Claus's workshop on Christmas Eve in an attempt to bring attention to the unfair conditions of their situation.

Though my niece is pretty sensitive to spooky things, I would consider reading this book to her.

You don't have to be demented to like this. It's just a nice silly story about what happens when sugar plum fairies get fed up. Short and the ending was in a different tone than the beginning, but still nice read for children.

Not appropriate for younger children, but my pre-teen very much loves these stories. May want to read it yourself first if it is for someone younger than 15/16 years old, it has an adult sarcastic sense to it, we got all of them b/c my kids enjoy that style of humor and are very well schooled in right vs wrong, to know to not mimic nor copy what they read or see on tv. When viewed in this sense, the stories are quite entertaining!

I don't consider myself to be demented, but I love reading John Carroll's stories!!! He has a way of describing things down to a very minute detail so that you, the reader, can really imagine the story just how he meant it to be.

This story is one of my favorites of Carroll's so far.

The premise of the story is good and the characters are ones that make the story complete! I highly recommend this story to ANYONE!! I'm not a child, but this story was still a good read.

I think it would make a great bedtime story!

Cute story. Had me laughing from beginning to end. Was not really sure if I should buy this book, but then figured what the heck,it's free. Glad I did since it was a good chuckle. A definite delight. Also made me happy to know I am not the only demented adult around.
