More About the Author

When I was ten or eleven, I started telling stories by drawing them. (To this day, drawing and doodling helps open up my creative side for storytelling. Once in college, during a very boring lecture, I doodled in the margins of my spiral-bound notebook and those doodles eventually turned into a complete science fiction novel manuscript.) By twelve, I began typing one page stories. Into high school and college, I was writing short novel manuscripts.

My first novel, the co-authored WITHER (by "J.G. Passarella") won the Horror Writers Association's Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel. Columbia Pictures bought the feature film rights. I followed up with two stand-alone sequels, WITHER'S RAIN and WITHER'S LEGACY (Wendy Ward novels), plus the paranormal thriller KINDRED SPIRIT and SHIMMER. In addition, I've authored six original media tie-in novels, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: GHOUL TROUBLE, ANGEL: AVATAR, ANGEL: MONOLITH, SUPERNATURAL: NIGHT TERROR, SUPERNATURAL: RITE OF PASSAGE and GRIMM: THE CHOPPING BLOCK. My fiction collection EXIT STRATEGY & OTHERS (with two new novelettes) is now available for Kindle.

I graduated from Interboro High School (Prospect Park, PA) and Widener University (Chester, PA). Currently, I live in New Jersey with my wife, three children, a dog and a cat.

I'll be honest, although I love Supernatural, until now the tie-in novels have left me cold. Poor characterizations, ridiculous plots and awful secondary characters have pretty much ruined them for me. That all came to an end with John Passarella's Night Terrors.

Night Terrors starts off with a bang-we're dropped right into the action and it never slows down. From giant tarantulas to Nazi zombies to killer trees, Sam and Dean are literally up against the stuff of nightmares. And gruesome ones at that--trust me, the tarantula scene is exceptionally graphic. The MOTW is interesting and one not often seen, which makes it fun trying to guess what it could be. I especially like that the hunt fits in easily with the show's timeline--no glaring canon errors, or events so big that they should have impacted the series.

The best part of the novel, tho, is that Mr. Passarella knows his stuff when it comes to Supernatural. He is a longtime fan of the show and it shows clearly in his characterizations of Sam and Dean and in their interactions with each other and everyone around them. He works in references to recent events in the show such as Sam's return from Hell and his fear of returning to Soulless!Sam as well as Dean's tendency to repress, repress, repress--little things that make the characters recognizable and believable and that have been sorely lacking until now.

Night Terrors by John Passarella is by far the best Supernatural novel I've read. I highly recommend it to any and all fans of the show and I hope that we see more from Mr. Passarella in the future!

It's about time there's a Supernatural paperback tie-in novel worth reading. If you haven't yet bought Night Terror, DO IT NOW.

Before reading Night Terror, I read an interview with the author, and I knew just from this that the book was going to be good. Why? Because John is actually a fan of Supernatural. He's been a fan since the pilot episode. So he KNOWS these characters. Unlike 95% of the previous tie-in authors who probably watched one episode, tops, John knows the entire world of Supernatural and cares about Sam and Dean. And it shows in every single page of this book.

Thankfully the story takes place between Frontierland and Mommy Dearest, so Sam has his soul back, which was a big plus for me. The main plot of the novel is that in a town in Colorado, people's nightmares are literally coming to life - from natural disasters to wild animals to zombies - and killing people. And it's up to Sam and Dean to figure out what's causing it and stop it. And the boys are not immune, either, both of them experiencing their own nightmares. While at first Dean's "nightmare" is amusing, his second is very much the opposite. And Sam's centers around the other half of himself, Soulless Sam, which comes to life and turns deadly for Dean.

There's just so much to love about this novel. It had such a classic season one/season two vibe to it - the boys ride into town, kill the monster and ride off into the sunset. The dialogue is spot on, I could hear Sam and Dean's voices in my head as I read. I just love the way John wrote the brother's relationship. Like I said, he knows these characters. The urban legend was very interesting and how it spiraled out of control in this town.

Finally someone gets it! This is the best tie-in novel for the Supernatural series that I've ever read. Amazingly, this writer has delved into the aftermath of Soulless Sam, more than the show ever has, and I loved it- all the while wishing this author could write for the show, too!

Supernatural: Night Terror

John Passarella's 'Night Terror' is the absolute standout Supernatural novel to date. From the first page I was drawn in by an exciting and vibrant story that would rival any great horror movie plot. The characters felt real and I could see the whole thing play out like a movie in my head. What held my attention the most in this particular novel was not that it was just a great story but that the author really captured the essence of the Winchester brothers. It's plain to see that John Passarella loves these characters and really 'gets' them, and is able to translate that into his writing.

As a fan of Supernatural I have dutifully bought and read each novel as they came out (with one exception where the author's previous attempt had me so disappointed that I couldn't bring myself to read her next novel) and for the most part it was an exercise in frustration as many of the novels lacked insight into the show, had poor characterisation and listless plots.

Of the three novels about this TV show that I have really enjoyed reading, Night Terror is by far my favourite. This is one book that will stay in my collection. If any of my friends want to read it they will just have to go buy their own copy!

I had a lot of high expectations for this novel when I bought it, as I have enjoyed other works by John Passarella in the past. I'm more than happy to say that it fullfilled those expectations easily. Night Terror was one of the most enjoyable Supernatural novels to date. The characterizations of the brothers were spot on for me. Dean had me laughing out loud with his one liners and pop culture references without them ever feeling forced.

And as this novel is set in the latter half of Season Six, we also see the fallout of Sam dealing with the wall that has been placed in his mind and in turn, how that affects both brothers.

It was lovely to get a real sense of the boys being a team again and having that bond slowly building between them. As the chaos and danger built up with each chapter, it was gripping to read how the boys dealt with everything while not blowing thier cover as FBI agents. I'll also admit that some of the deaths were suitably gruesome for a Supernatural book and had me squirming as I read them....but that just added to my enjoyment.

Another element of the book I thoroughly enjoyed, was the individual characters within the town itself. Each of them had their own story and it was hard not to give a damn for them as they faced the complete destruction of their town and loved ones.

All in all? This book is well worth getting your hands on. It is definitely one of the best of the Supernatural novels and is a shining example of how this show can be continued and further explored. I would love to see the novels continue in this style and with authors like John Passarella being given control? There is no reason for them not to!
