Author, Actor, Poet

Welcome to John J

Please take a few minutes to look through the pages of my site. I have been posting blog articles since 2010 on a variety of subjects, including Civil Rights, poetry, autobiographical sketches, financial planning, book and drama reviews, and commentary.

If you'd like to get in touch and share your thoughts about my blog, my books or something else, I invite you to send me a quick note from the Contact page.

Enjoy your stay, and come back soon.
