In 2006, John was named a “Poetry Ambassador” for the National Poetry Month in the United States. He is a long time member of The Adirondack Summer Writer’s Workshop (ASWW). His first poetry book “The Pirate’s Haiku” was published in 2008 and “The Forest of Forever ~ A Christmas Story” with haiku was published in 2009.
