Meet the Author

John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn’t kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel’s skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad’s fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)As a teenager, John spent most of his time driving wherever he could in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the road, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He was the captain of the chess team, lettered in golf and band while in high school, and wasn’t beaten up anywhere near as much as one might imagine.As an adult, John spends most of his time staring at a computer screen in an attempt to avoid people. He stares at the monitor for hours, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He has been married to his wonderful wife for sixteen years and they have three obnoxio . . . wonderful children who always behave . . . when they’re asleep.Emo bunny minions surround John at most times. He is their imaginary friend and they look to him for guidance. At one point, they took over the world. No one noticed because they left everything exactly as it was. They gave the world back after a week because it was depressing.The Willden Trilogy is his first endeavor into the field of writing. Other series and standalone works will be forthcoming. In addition, John has written a number of short stories that can be found at most eBook sites. He writes in the evenings and weekends whenever possible. Regrettably, the family mentioned in a previous paragraph desires food and shelter, requiring the author to possess a full time job until his writing makes him rich.

This was interesting. Creative thinking from the author in this short story. It some way makes you wonder what impact you have an others, even those who you don't really know or "see". The ending left a little to be desired, but it it was an okay read.

The story started out good but after Lori "killed" him it just ended. I found this disappointing. I think it should have had a better ending.

This book/story had the beginnings of what could have been a good book. However it fell short, reading far too much like a teens English assignment and less like a book to take seriously. Even though it is free, I felt time was wasted reading this book....far too simple and like a slumber party story for my taste.

I think this could be a good horror story, but it needs to be more fleshed out and longer. As is, it reads more like a first draft by someone just trying to get the bare bones down on paper. It's not bad, but it needs more development and more story. I'd be interested in reading a novel-length version that fully explored the details the short version only lobs at the reader. Ie. the 23 yrs that Adam has been stuck and how he evolves from a nice nerdy kid to ruthless crazy person.
