About John (1957-)

John grew up with a neglective father, and a somewhat crazed mother. He dropped out of high school, so he could get away from his hometown, Amherst, Massachusetts, and his parents. Despite all that, he worked as a special effect designer for the band KISS, and also worked as a game designer for a major toy company. He also worked as a manager for a Boston electronics firm, and ran, and still runs, a car repair shop. He is also the author of three books about his life, Raising Cubby, Be Different, and Look Me in the Eye.
