INFORMATION
Raymond John is a hopeless FanStory addict who has at times spent as many as twelve hours in a single day reading, reviewing and writing for the site. His three purposes are based on three "Es" which are Explain, Enlighten and Entertain. His greatest fear is to take himself too seriously. He may not always smile, but he always has a twinkle in his eye. Knock his socks off with a fantastic write and he'll be your best cheerleader and give you a banner award, to boot.

He has written two novels and numerous short works. His first book, The Cellini Masterpiece, has sold nearly 3,000 copies and received an Honorable Mention in the 2006 IPPY awards. It is now available in a Kindle edition from Amazon.com. An audio version (ISBN 9780615268125) is now available read by the renown actor, James Cada. MP3 edition, downloadable for IPOD, is 14.95. Order at www.raymondjohnbooks.com. His second mystery, Mix and Match Murder, which was originally scheduled for release in September of 2008 is now in print and available from Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and North Star Press.

A scholar born in the golden age of radio, Raymond always appreciates hearing a well-told story, especially one with action and believable dialogue in a historical setting.



I have written and received many reviews. I have a thick skin, so if constructive criticism is forthcoming, bring it on.

    Dom G Robles: Thank you Ray for your nice comment. My friend was someone I had been asssociated with for many, many years. She had cancer. She had suffered for quite a long time but I am glad it is all over. But the pain still lingers especially during memorial day.

    RaymondJohn: I know it must be a relief. It still is a shock when it happens. Cheers. Ray.

    Alexander E Poet: Some have asked me what is truth ? who‚??s truth? I‚??m I looking talking about?


    I want to share with you my answer.

    What is truth? truth is simple, truth is facts, when you find the facts you find truth. for example : Look at the Sun, that is truth, when people see things as clear as they see the sun today here‚??s the tricky part. ( inside theirs heads to THAT is truth. Start there the sun is truth! AlexanderQQ.,

    dale339: I see you were "born in the golden age of radio". Check out www.otr.com - I highly recommend "The Great Gildersleeves".

    RaymondJohn: I remember the Great Gildersleeve well. I'll give a listen to your suggestion, though I fear I'll be spending all my time there. Ray
