Meet the Author

John Hayden spent his career in the engineering and construction businesses, advising politicians and high ranking officials across the USA, Europe, and the Middle East. Having worked jobs on both ends of the spectrum, from equipment operator and laborer to executive and CEO, he has met the best and worst of people; often they've been involved in a stew of corruption and crime. It is such characters that populate the universe of his novels.
John admires mysteries and thrillers driven by characters readers can recognize as real, and frequently flawed. His own books reflect such lives, intervened upon by unexpected disasters. Lies and Perception, John's second novel, examines how the best and worst among us can be warped; particularly in the Garbage Game where bad things happen, usually as a result of greed, jealousy, lust, anger or fear-and sometimes all of the above.
John earned a Ph.D. in engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. He is married with three adult children. A lifetime New Englander, John and his wife Janet, along with Fergus the Red Setter, now split their time between Cape Cod and the Palm Beaches.
