From the author's website:
John's Air Force family moved over forty times before he graduated from high school. He's lived in Maryland, D.C., Virginia, Germany, Texas, New York, Arkansas, and New Mexico, not exactly in that order and sometimes more than once. He went to high school in three states and earned his B.A. and M.A. degrees from U.T. Austin. At one time or another he's been a sculptor, painter, teacher, office manager, groundskeeper, cartoonist, online news editor, Web designer, and rock and roll songwriter. A few years ago, he played rhythm guitar for Los Changos del Mar, "New Mexico's only extraterrestrial, psycho-surf-punk, spy-billy, harem conjunto."
"When I'm able to write like that, I feel ecstasy and unity with all Creation. It's like an athlete performing an 'impossible' feat with seeming effortlessness and grace. I live for that... When I'm in that state, I don't care about money or sex or food. I don't care about who I am or what I am. I don't care if I'm in the front of the line or at the very end. I don't even care if I'm alive or dead, because it seems I'm in the same place, either way." - JHF (@jhfarr)
