NOVEMBER 16, 2020: BOOK LAUNCH

MURDER BY ROAD TRIP, John’s newest book, goes on sale through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and IngramSpark. This book was inspired by a 30-day, 7600 mile road trip across the USA that he took with his daughter Jackie. A comedy murder mystery, the destinations are real but the events are hilariously fictitious.

John co-wrote the book with Jacqueline. In addition to buying the book (you know you want to), keep an eye out for a destination-specific blog series that will provide John and his daughter’s individual perspectives on their once-in-a-lifetime road trip. It should be fun, since we all know that twenty-something daughters always agree with dad:)
