About the Author


Born and raised on a sheep farm in Kansas, John Rester Zodrow has written novels, motion pictures and opened on stage in Europe and Broadway. He constantly seeks topics that ask hard questions and likes controversial subjects in which characters are tried by extreme circumstances with complex psychological insights that result.

In The Biographical Dictionary of Contemporary American Writing: Gina Macdonald writes that “John Rester Zodrow’s novels give a highly detailed sense of place and character; they provide fast-paced, gripping entertainment with intriguing plots, multilevel action and perilous encounters, and yet they have a strong underlying moral base with tough-minded analyses of the dual nature of man.”

John’s favorite pastimes are being with his family and playing softball. He improbably believes that the best movie of all time is “My Fair Lady.”
