About John A Shivers

John Shivers began writing for his hometown newspaper when he was only fourteen years old. As a lifelong wordsmith - some have called him a wordweaver - his byline has appeared in over forty Christian and secular publications, winning him seventeen professional awards. Hear My Cry, his first novel, was published in 2005, and a dream of forty-four years was realized. With that realization came the understanding that his books that impacted readers across denominational lines, answered a call to ministry he'd felt much earlier in his life. With the publication of Repossessed, he now has seven books in print. John and his wife, Elizabeth, along with Callum, their irascible but lovable Skye Terrier, live in his hometown of Calhoun, Georgia. They are members of the Plainville United Methodist Church, where John serves the congregation as Lay Leader. When the schedule permits, he loves to slip away to heaven on earth in Rabun County, Georgia, where he enjoys the music that his heart doesn't hear anywhere else. John has recently finished the first volume of a secular mystery series, and is also at work on another Christian fiction book that includes some of the same characters found in Repossessedshow more
