I am John Thornton, and I have a diverse background. I have worked as an EMT and as an RN for 10 years in various ICUs, cardiac, surgical, and medical. I saw lots of people die, and I also listened to some really amazing people share their life stories with me. I also graduated from two seminaries and work as a pastor.
I enjoy reading very much. I read all kinds of literature, from romance novel to historical fiction to science fiction (I love dystopias and stories about things in a post apocalypse) to theology texts, to-how to books. Did I miss any genres?
And as you may be about to discover, I also like to write.
I have a wide range of interests, as you will see from my short stories, novels, and collections of my messages from a radio show I did for 10 years.
I have four grown up daughters, a delightful wife, and two wonderful dogs, and two ancient cats.
I live in the Northern Plains of the USA, so I experience the cold and bitter during the winter, and hot and dry during the summers. I also live with a chronic associate, a painful form of degenerative arthritis. I have lots of mechanical parts inside my body, and in some ways I truly am a cyborg. Which leads me to share with you my current project.....
Please check out my science fiction adventure series! "Recovery of a Colony Ship" and "Exploring the Colony Ship" and a third book which is about to be published. All these books take place on the mysterious and not quite functional Colony Ship Eschaton, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
