BIO

John Bauer read, lived, worked, loved, won, and lost, well before he ever wrestled with words.
In 2007, fired as county manager for no good reason from a place he’d previously managed for six productive years, he mistitled, and under-achieved with a textbook/cathartic memoir—boats, knots, other things.
Undaunted, John sold health insurance and stocks and bonds, and then served five (5) twelve(12)-month tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Senior Governance Advisor for the US Department of State.
Since 2013, Scribes Valley, Stone Canoe Literary Journal, AnotheRealm, the Magazine of Speculative Fiction, Andrews UK Limited (House of Erotica), WildSound Novel Writing Festival, and Stringybark Stories have published his stories. Thrice he’s successfully participated in Nanowrimo; in November 2013, he drafted Squandered Existence.
His genres are adult contemporary, dark comedy, farcical, horror, erotic, and non-fiction. A believer in pre-destination and Divine Providence, John opines the endings to each of his manuscripts are not entirely his own.
Born in Brooklyn, raised on Long Island, New York, where he dug clams for eight summer seasons, John was schooled at Notre Dame and Syracuse, with detours to Mexico City, Mexico, Raleigh, NC, and Little Rock, Arkansas. Since 1979, he has worked as a public servant in southeastern North Carolina. There, he and his wife raised three children who’ve created five grandchildren.
Oldmanwrite –website and brand—reflects by any quantitative measure, John is old. Qualitatively? That part of his BIO has yet to be written.
