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.

    Dralin pulls you in from the first page!

    I have read all of John Carroll's work so far, and he gets better with each book. Dralin is a dark fantasy whose characters live in world that is rife with hardship, finding hope and happiness where they can. Vivid description make the world of Dralin almost a character in itself. I found this a hard book to put down, because each page had me wondering what was going to happen next, and I was surprised by the twists and turns the plot took.

    If you read this and like it, seek out Carroll's other books. You'll be glad you did!

    Dark and intense

    I felt like something was going to go wrong the whole time. But I was still surprised when it did, and then it went wrong again and again. I wanted to yell at the people who were being stupid.

    I read this in a day, but I'm really fast at reading. It was really good though. I want to know what happens to the girls and there should have been more about Frath. Please finish the next book Mr. Carroll.
