Hey all, John here…
Dot said folks were asking about the books I write and asked me to post something. For years, I’ve tried not to shoehorn my side career into her “dot2trot” universe. Mainly because it isn’t about me — it’s about Dot, her passion for good food and great health, and you folks. But she asked nicely, so what can I say?
Here’s what I write: https://www.amazon.com/John-L-Monk/e/B00DSUEOAG
In the most general sense, my books usually fall into the spectrum of “speculative fiction.” Fantasy, sci-fi, etc. Of the titles in the link above, I’d say the books “Kick,” “Hell’s Children” and “Thief’s Odyssey” are the most accessible to a broad audience. The “Chronicles of Ethan” and my upcoming book “Underpowered Howard” were written in a genre called “LitRPG” — stories told from the perspective of someone living in a game universe governed by game rules (i.e., these stories are not for everyone).
Of them all, my first novel “Kick” has been optioned for a TV show — though with Covid going on, any movement on that has been put on hold.
Note of caution: if you read my books, understand they’re really just fiction — stories distilled from a lifetime of media and experience, then twisted, amplified through the lens of my personality. So no need to pity Dot for having a psychopath husband, kay? 🙂
