Check out the full episode here:
John Scanlan began writing his first published crime novel, thanks to spare time
his job and life had created for him!
While John always enjoyed reading, he never really set out to become a published
author of a crime novel. Let alone the fact that he now has a second published
crime novel as well! John, being a cop in Florida, didn’t goto school for
writing but he loved to read a good crime novel. Being a cop, John realized that
most of what would happen in the crime novel wouldn’t happen in real life.
So when John set out to start writing his first crime novel one night while his
wife and first child were sleeping, he just got started with the way he thought
books were written. John’s crime novels are written as if they really could
happen, which gives them realism, while still being entertaining.
John Scanlan is a great guy and I love how he turned something that he would’ve
just kept as a hobby and turned it into a hopeful future retirement job! I also
like the approach that John took with keeping his project a secret so there
would be no fear of having to be judged before it was ready.
