John’s Writing!

John’s Coaching is OPEN!

Not another “Package” you need to figure how to fit yourself into, but individualized conversation with the one goal of helping you write that thing you want to write (How many pages are in that drawer?), or of creating that “Thing” that has been bouncing around in your head for too long now.

This is an opportunity to have focused conversations that have the one goal of helping your creativity do it’s thing!


Join Pops and the Skwerdlock for a weekly, half-hour of stories, activities, and other fun things they might dream up for our favorite early readers and listeners!

Thursdays at 10:30 AM CST, on Facebook Live! And all sessions are recorded and available on the StoryTime Live website!

John’s Workshops Coming Soon!

“Another World for Writers and Storytellers!”

“An Introduction to Interactive Fiction for Writers and Other Creatives!

What Is John Doing Now!

  • I am VERY excited that “StoryTime With Pops!” has returned to FaceBook Live with a weekly program with my early readers and listeners friends. Skwerdlock and I are excited to see our friends from around the world back for more fun and surprises!

  • I am working on illustrations for the next Skwerdlock books to come early next year!

  • I am excited to finally be able to have more time to help other writers and creatives with my coaching. See this page for more information.

  • I am developing the first episodes of my new podcast called, “Just Good Stories!”, to being starting soon!

  • A long-time fan of Old Time Radio, I am just putting the finishing touches on the first story of what may become the “Hap Shuman Series”. Hap Shuman returns to the noir detective stories like Sam Spade, Philip Marlowe, Richard Diamond, and others found in the old “pulp” magazines as well as on the radio. Best of all, I plan to publish the Hap Shuman stories here on my website for all to enjoy! Coming VERY soon.

  • Following that comment about Hap Shuman, I have been experimenting with using my spot on the Second Life platform as a creative fuel for writing Hap’s stories. I have created the “world” of Hap Shuman there and am amazed at how visiting the locations from the stories kick the brain into a new gear. More on that later…
