After reading thousands of books over the years and thinking to himself that he could do better than some authors that have been published, in late 2013 John R McKay decided to put his money where his mouth is and give writing a go.

The result is five completed novels, the latest of which, The Worst Journey In The World, was released on 8th September 2017.

John is currently working on a story for the anthology ‘The Darkest Hour – World War 2 Tales Of Resistance’ which will be available in January 2019. It is available for pre-order on iBooks. Click here for details

John lives just outside Wigan in the North West of England with his wife, Dawn and has two grown up daughters, Jessica and Sophie.

John served for seven years in the Royal Air Force and after two rather dull jobs in the packaging industry he then moved on to Greater Manchester Fire Service until leaving in May of 2014.
