John Rachel has a B.A. in Philosophy, is a novelist and established political blogger. He has written eight novels and three political non-fiction books. His political articles have appeared at OpEdNews, Russia Insider, Greanville Post, and other alternative media outlets.
Since leaving the U.S. in 2006, he has lived in and explored 33 countries. He is now somewhat rooted in a traditional, rural Japanese community about an hour from Osaka, where he lives with his wife of four years. Daily he rides his bicycle through the soybean fields and rice paddies which sprawl across the surrounding landscape. As of the date of the release of this book, he has a small but promising organic vegetable garden which begs his attention.
