About the Author

John Rachel has a B.A. in Philosophy, has traveled extensively, been a songwriter and music producer, and is an evolutionary humanist. In the past ten years, he has lived in or visited over thirty five countries, which profoundly informs and inspires his writing.

Since 2008, he has had eight fiction and three non-fiction books published. These range from three satires and a coming-of-age trilogy, to a political drama and now a crime thriller. The three non-fiction books were political works, promoting representative democracy and peace. He has also completed a fantasy/travel/cookbook called "What Do Mermaids Eat?", which is now being reviewed by publishers in the U.S. and England.

Never knowing when enough is enough, the hyperthyroid Rachel continues to be very busy. He has three more novels in the pipeline for publication 2018 through 2019: Sex, Lies and Coffee Beans, a spoof on the self-help crazes of the 80s and 90s; Love Connection, a drug-trafficking thriller set in Japan; and finally The Last Giraffe, an anthropological drama involving both the worship and devouring of giraffes, which unfolds in 19th Century sub-Saharan Africa.

John Rachel's last permanent residence in America was Portland, Oregon where he had a state-of-the-art ProTools recording studio, music production house, a radio promotion and music publishing company. He still writes music and, much to the annoyance of his neighbors in the traditional rural Japanese town where he now lives, attempts to sing his original songs.
