About the Author
John Major Jenkins is the author of a dozen books on Maya mythology, cosmology, and culture, published with Tarcher/Penguin, Inner Traditions, Bear & Company, Borderland Sciences Research Foundation, and his own limited edition imprint, Four Ahau Press. His travels in Mesoamerica since the 1980s, living and working with the Maya, provided intimate insights that are woven into his novel. He is the voice talent in several audio programs that feature his work (Sounds True, 2007, 2008), and has appeared in numerous documentaries. He has contributed introductions and chapters to popular and academic books and anthologies, and his work has been endorsed and cited by many leading writers. As an independent investigator, his work has been featured in dozens of documentaries including 2012: The Beginning, which was the best attended documentary film in the MipDoc section of Cannes in 2012. His work was also featured with a full-page author photo in the New York Times Sunday Magazine of July 1, 2007, and in the U.S. News and World Report. He has presented at academic and popular venues, was a featured speaker at press junkets for a Hollywood movie, co-founded the non-profit Maya Conservancy, and has lead tours to Maya sites and Peru. In the late 1990s he served as the literary executor for Finnish-American poet and translator, Eino Friberg, and edited books for the Finnish Ruusu-risti (Rosicrucians) that were published with Blue Dolphin. His poetry and stories can be found in his books, and a work of historical fiction (featuring Boulder, Colorado in the 1930s) was completed in 2003. His best known books have been translated into a dozen languages: Tzolkin (BSRF, 1992/94), Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 (Bear & Company, 1998), Galactic Alignment (Inner Traditions, 2002), Pyramid of Fire (Inner Traditions, 2004), and The 2012 Story (Tarcher/Penguin, 2009). Previous travelogue books with characters, stories, and dialogue were self-published in 1989 and 1991. A seven-volume series of historical fiction with poetry is being completed.
