John UpChurch writes stories at night in his mind. From an early age, he became fascinated with finding the narrative behind people and places, with drawing out the fears and anxieties that hold others spellbound. But he didn’t know the true Creator of stories—of life—until August 2003. When Christ came in, those stories transformed from hopelessness to a newfound joy in the human experience and the supernatural. Combining his passion for Christ with his degree in creative writing, John writes stories that keep readers enthralled, that cut to the core of what transformation is about. And most of all, his stories inspire the kind of hope that comes from realizing the true purpose of life.
