Welcome to Strange New Worlds

You are about to enter a realm that exists beyond time and space. A domain that both aliens and monsters call home. Embark on a journey from your own backyard to the farthest reaches of the universe.

I am John Coon, your pilot on this strange and incredible journey. I’m a natural-born storyteller. It forms an essential part of my identity. I published my first novel, Pandora Reborn, through Samak Press in 2018. Other novels, including the popular Alien People Chronicles science fiction series, have followed in subsequent years.

My readers share a common love of exploring exciting new worlds within the pages of a story. Imagine a realm filled with dynamic characters, otherworldly settings, and thrilling adventures. Don’t you just relish the feeling of discovery when you immerse yourself in an exciting new story? I know I do.

I enjoy living the storytelling life.
