During the work day John is a mild-mannered program manager at a software development company, helping to coordinate teams to achieve their goals and get good software out on time and at quality. Away from work John likes to coordinate how evil doers will attempt to destroy the world and how good-hearted heroes and heroines can stop them. That is, in between being a father (which includes such subduties as substituting for a jungle gym), a condo trustee at the wonderful Camelot Cohousing community, and a student of the Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do.
John finds he has lots of ideas but is working hard on how to put them all down in some semblance of structure that would make for a readable story. Proper grammar is a struggle, but not for the next 30-ish days. John also finds it weird to write in the third person for bios, even if that's the tense that his novel is written in.
