Born in Huron, Ohio, John is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a B.A. in journalism. He obtained his law degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. For many years he represented Major League Baseball in many high-profile cases, including the celebrated George Brett "Pine Tar" case and the Pete Rose gambling case. His first book was Jean Arthur: The Actress Nobody Knew. At the end of 2011, John retired from active legal practice to concentrate on his writing career. Since then, in addition to American Queen, he has published an e-book, An All-American Murder, a true crime story of a murder in Columbus, Ohio in 1975. His next book, The Swamp Fox: How Francis Marion Saved the American Revolution, is scheduled for publication in October 2016. When not writing he pursues his hobbies of golf, theater, film, and travel. He divides his time between New York City and a home in California wine country.
