From Lana Pattinsin:
Time for the annual #PimpMyBio blog hop for Pitch Wars Contestants!!!
This is just for fun, for mentees and mentors to get to know each other better. I repeat, this is NOT mandatory…but I know some mentors use it to get to know contestants better.
The Blog Hop closes when the Pitch Wars sub window does…August 6th

John is an avid reader, often blowing through a novel or more a week. A lover of both scifi and fantasy, he has always had aspirations as a writer but often found motivation lacking.
John was born in Western New York. When he was five, his father read the red leatherbound version of Lord of the Rings to him. He fell in love with the idea of other universes, other realities. Star Wars and Star Trek gave him new insights into these and he was forever changed by both.
He attended schools and universities in Western New York. He moved to Europe in 2012 to teach in a secondary school in Germany (English, History, Geography, Politics and Computer Science). He is totally addicted to travel and has visited over a hundred cities across thirty-four countries since the move.
His first novel is adult fantasy written in his own world. He is currently searching for an agent with the hopes of publishing it.
There were once eleven artifacts made by an ancient race. Together, they have the power to alter the very nature of reality. Scattered to the winds, they have only been brought together twice, both times to a tragic end. Now, the search to bring them together begins anew.
One man struggles to find his way through this search, while being hunted by those who would find and use them for themselves. His search is complicated by the fact that his past is a mystery, even to himself.
With no memories, who can he trust to help him? Who is chasing him, and why? And most importantly, how can he get those memories back?
My Favorite Books/Authors of All Time (Often I really like many books from each of these authors, but I picked my favorites for each)
