John Dunning was born in 1942 in Brooklyn, NY. He was raised in Charleston, SC, is married, and has two adult children.
John always wanted to write, but was a poor student. He left high school in the tenth grade, partly because of an inability to concentrate and absorb lectures. Several years ago he was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD), a malady that could not have been imagined in the glorious 1950s.
John's latest challenge has been a large benign brain tumor, which was partially removed in 2006, causing the loss of one eye and a long recovery period. But he is now writing again and working at getting back Janeway's unique voice on the page.
