This site belongs to John August. I wrote everything here, unless it’s specifically credited to someone else.
The site has been around since 2003, and now has more than 1,500 posts. (If you’re curious, you can see snapshots of what it’s looked like over the years.)
I’m writing the Arlo Finch series of middle-grade fiction books. If you like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, there’s a good chance you’ll dig them. You might want to leave a review on GoodReads. I’ve also written short fiction, including The Variant and Snake People.
For television, I created the show D.C. for the WB Network. It was a terrible experience. I’ve also written pilots for ABC and Fox, both of which went fine.
I commissioned the typeface Courier Prime, designed by Alan Dague-Greene.
I married Mike August in 2008. We have a daughter, born in 2005.
The site was originally designed by Ryan Nelson, and is currently maintained by Dustin Bocks. Editorial supervision by Megan McDonnell.
