Growing up in New Hampshire, he discovered Stephen King much younger than most probably should have, reading IT before he reached high school—and knew from that moment on he wanted to write horror. He co-founded Livid Comics in late 2020, co-creating and writing his debut comic titled Jol (pronounced Yule), a Christmas horror series for all ages. After publishing that, the itch to expand his writing was one he had to scratch. Through Livid, he wrote his second comic due to be released this winter titled Dead Ball. John also launched a podcast with fellow Livid founder Joel Vanpatten called The Livid Comics Lair, where they talk with many of today’s best horror authors, comic creators, and all things that go bump in the night like UFO and paranormal investigators.
