Welcome! I’m John Desjarlais, author of novels that explore mysteries both visible and invisible and that lift the imagination to awaken wonder.
Kick back and look around. Browse my books and reviews, check my blog on writing and literature, consider attending an event listed in "News" if you’re close by.
Come follow me on Facebook and Instagram for the latest news, schedule of events, and updates on works-in-progress. Sign up for my quarterly Email Newsletter (link coming here soon!)
When I’m not writing fiction or poetry, I’m hiking and biking the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, playing my guitar or dulcimer and enjoying a craft beer. Maybe we can share one sometime.
(BTW, that photo above is a view from a nearby trail that I like).
