Author’s Bio

Prior to becoming an adventure fiction author…

John Phillip Backus explored the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, backpacked extensively throughout the western United States, attended sacred Native American ceremonies in New Mexico, panned for gold, held jobs as a lumberjack, fir cone harvester in reforestation efforts, carpenter, boatbuilder, and as a U.S. Army paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division.

As a freelance technical writer, John wrote how-to books, computer software manuals, management materials, curriculum, as well as scientific reports as a contractor for the CDC in Atlanta.

John currently spends his time traveling, researching, and writing the next volume in his popular post apocalyptic series, After The Fall, and soon-to-be released science fiction saga, The Dorian Chronicles.
