Author has written 3 stories for Legend of Zelda, City Hunter/시티헌터, and Karate Kid.

Name: John

Birthday: 9/21/1985 - Eight days after the Japanese release of Super Mario Bros. Coincidence? I think not.

Favorite Games:

-Anything from the Zelda series, especially OOT and SS.
-Anything Final Fantasy, especially VII and VIII.
-Anything Mario, especially old-school classics like SMB3 and SMW.
-Chrono Trigger
-Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game (the actual arcade console, not the NES port)
-Harvest Moon 64
-Goldeneye N64
-Outpost 2 (PC)
-Descent I and II (PC)

This is hardly an exhaustive list, but this includes most of the titles that are nearest and dearest to my heart and that I've spent the most time with over the years.

I am currently studying for my M.A. in English through Morehead State University's online program. My first commercial publication is Virtuous Worlds: The Video Gamer's Guide to Spiritual Truth, a book that attempts to draw positive connections between Christianity and video games (an almost unheard-of concept, it must be admitted). You can find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many other online retailers.

Man Who Catch Wife with Chopstick reviews
An extended alternate ending to Karate Kid II that takes place three years later, narrated from Daniel-san's perspective. Let's just say it involves a proposal, a wedding, and plenty of references to Japanese language and culture.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Novel reviews
I always felt that the Zelda series deserved a novel, something that tells the story we're all familiar with, except with the kind of plot and character development more often found in literature than in video games. The seeds are there in the game, but sometimes they have to be drawn out. Believe it or not, this project came close to commercial publication. See intro for more.

The Bear and the Monster reviews
City Hunter is my favorite K-Drama, but the first time I saw this series, I felt the ending was way too rushed. I still think another five or ten minutes would have allowed for more of a resolution. At least, with the ending as-is, we're free to play with the fates of our favorite characters, yes? Personally, THIS is how I like to think it would have played out.
