Hi, My name is John Battle and I've been telling stories of one sort or another for nearly fifty years. I started out telling serial stories to my younger brothers and sisters at night. Then I'd write short stories for one of my older sisters to mark. 

I have to admit that I've spent most of my adult life not actually writing; life has a talent for getting in the way.

But, since a pep talk from my son in August 2012, I'm now an every day writer. When you are not writing, it is easy to forget how much fun it is.

I now have a body of work that I am proud to present to discerning readers. And there is much more to come.
