Although the name on my books is "J.G." McKenney, you can call me John. I'm a retired teacher who now writes full time. I love nature and music, and believe learning is a gift and an obligation. I consider myself a "book knight," but you'll need to read my novel to find out what that's all about.
My fascination with fantasy and adventure began at a young age when I discovered works like THE HOBBIT and THE CALL OF THE WILD. That early love of reading has matured into a need to tell stories that transport readers into worlds full of wonder and enchantment. It's an addiction I don't intend to kick. The problem is I'll be dead long before I can write all the books I've got in my head. There...just thought of another one.
In the winter, you'll find me at home working away on a manuscript, reading someone else's book, strumming on one of my guitars, or walking with my wife and best friend, Wendy. If it's Friday afternoon, I'll be playing hockey with the boys.
Summer's my favorite season. It's a time for boating, swimming, reclining in my zero-gravity chair under the shade of the maple trees next the lake shore, and strumming guitars. Oh, and walking with my wife. If it's Thursday afternoon, I'll be playing golf with...you guessed it...the boys.
I'm working on a real fun project, a first-person epic fantasy entitled The Blademaster's Call, the first book in a planned trilogy, The Chronicle of Jack Green. It's very different from the other books I've written, and it's aimed at an adult audience. It pokes fun at the genre and I think those who like to laugh will really enjoy it.
I hope you enjoy my books, and I encourage you to post reviews so others can know your thoughts.
