John Theo Jr. received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Salem State University, and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. For almost two decades his diverse writing portfolio included roles as a movie critic, a magazine freelance writer, and a college professor where he taught screenwriting.
John grew up in the suburbs north of Boston where much of his youth was spent buried under stacks of comic books. He latched onto any story involving far off places and fantastical characters. Years later he realized the novels and movies that impacted him on the deepest level were ones with a spiritual component. In hindsight, he realized that his youthful obsession with these stories was, in fact, a longing for the Divine.
Today, John Theo Jr. writes novels from a Christian perspective. Like the stories of his youth, John enjoys tales with an otherworldly component to them as well as a good measure of action, adventure, and romance.
We are here for a blink of an eye and then gone. A true “Happily Ever After” in fiction stories, and in life, is only attained with an eternal perspective, and the hope that we have in Jesus.
Murder at Cluster Springs Raceway is John’s seventh fiction novel. For more information check out johntheo.com
