About the Author

Raised in western New York State, John B. Wren has been functioning as a consulting engineer for over 40 years, providing design services for building utility systems in commercial and industrial facilities, educational institutions, hospitals and data centers across the United States and around the world. Educated in New York and Ohio, Wren has been an avid reader of high tech thrillers, mysteries and in the non-fiction realm, physics and astrophysics. His first published novel, To Probe A Beating Heart, has been available since the summer of 2011 and his second work, Killing His Fear, is now available through Amazon. "My next project, titled 'Darryl's Reunion' is in progress and expected to be released in the spring of 2013." Wren's writing interests are not restricted to tales of murder and mystery, but touch on the conditions of the world around us as will be evidenced in another work anticipated to reach completion late in 2014. "I think about many things that stir a number of us all and putting my thoughts and opinions in writing may well establish a bond between some and build a wall between others, but my objective would be neither. Rather to put the tougher issues of today on a common table where discussion may occur. The answers are not always one extreme or the other but rather a position somewhere in between where opposites may coexist."

Another excellent pyschological/thriller...Kept me engrossed, on the edge of my seat and turning the pages non-stop..It's a slow build of suspense with an increase of intensity and great action towards the end..Not as bloody as his debut novel, but that wasn't the main point in this story..This author has always great with in-depth characterization of everyone in both his novels..He makes you have conflicted feelings and sympathy for a killer..(Much like fans who watch SHO's "Dexter")..With this novel you see the other side which in this case it's nature over nuture...The child had mental development issues that were not handle right by his parents....Actually you will see that after his father died, his mother and sisters are afraid of him..(His own mother has a psychotic break and is hospitalized for a while)..He has horrid nightmares, outbursts, hearing voices, deep rooted fears of the dark and shadows...Plus, big fascination with old classic, Horror Films which at his age they were still black and white...That is the era this child grew up in...Hardly anyone talked or mentioned mental disease..Everything was hushed.......

Brandon is quiet, very tall, skiny and pale.. Some would describe him as odd..Grew up feeling awkward amongst his peers..Eventually, knows he doesn't fit in at home and leaves...His travels will wind up in DC..Where he soons settles into a job as a diswasher...Where if his mind is kept busy on a regular schedule the grey shadows and fears stay away...One night after being fired from his job with no reason giving, panic sets in, voices in his head rise, he will be threatened and there will be an innocent accident...But you will see all it takes is that first time..Now he feels "in control" again...

Format: Paperback

"Killing His Fear" is about a protagonist who has an obsessive fear of night. He has found a way to keep it under control. The cure was by accident but has some unbelievable results. Brandon seems soothed with his reaction to dangerous situations and the mastery of his opponents. His combatants are not so lucky. A bigger problem is Brandon sees only a positive outcome. He doesn't think that he may have to deal with them again n. He feels nothing towards their feelings. I felt the book was quite a page turner but it was rather a little disturbing. The early films depended on lighting and sound to show the effects they were looking for. Brandon as a young boy was very impressionable. One night of watching Frankenstein on TV ans his life is changed. Fear began to spiral out of control. Brandon;s father was killed by a hit and run driver ans his mother, well she had her own personal hell.Brandon heads Florida. He becomes a dishwasher in Washington D.C. to earn a little money for his trip.He ends up staying and things begin to look up for Brandon. This is the second book the author, John B. Wren has written about a serial killer. You get the feeling that this could very well be happening, not fiction , but reality. Will Brandon get control of his fear or will it become worse? I would recommend this book to everyone. It holds your attention and at times you feel like you are actually there. Fear can be quite controlling. It can consume you.

I would give give this book 5 Stars.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book KILLING HIS FEAR by the author, John B. Wren for this unbiased review.

This book is a great carry along book. An easy ongoing read. Lots of tension, scary scenarios using lots of senses.
A must read for those who love a dark story. Also must read To Probe a Beating Heart by the same author.

Format: Paperback
This is the second John Wren novel I have read. Unlike the first one where the serial killer is not likeable you actually feel sorry for Brandon the killer in this novel. You are given enough information as the book progresses to see that a single incident in his childhood changed the way he looked at life. He tries to get on with things in his own way dealing with his own fears but circumstances put him in a situation where things change and he finds a way to quell these fears through the act of killing. It was easy reading and a book I didn't want to put down.

Format: Paperback
This is John B. Wren's second novel. I found it to be plausible, tight and tense.. Again, Wren focuses on the psychology of a child and how one unfortunate event can shape and destroy the child's future. Young Brandon loses his father at an early age after he is run over by a hit and run driver. The line between the monsters in the movies and the "monster" who accidently killed his father become blurred and Brandon is consumed with fear. As a young man, Brandon decides to seek his fortune in Florida. En route to a his new life, Brandon decides to stay for a short time in Washington, D.C. in order to earn money to fund the completion of his trip. It is there that he quite accidently discovers how to squelch his fear. This is a roller coaster of a tale and I, as the reader felt a great deal of sympathy for Brandon. Without giving away the shocking ending, I encourage you to read this book but don't recommend you do it before going to bed!
