J.G. Sandom is creating : Readings of my fiction and progressive political musings.

Author of eleven novels, Net entrepreneur, journalist and progressive political activist. (See profiles at Amazon, LinkedIn and Wikipedia.)

I have been a writer since Mrs. Kinney read me "The rhyme of the ancient mariner" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 5th grade. And while some of my novels have done pretty well -- Gospel Truths has sold almost 40,000 copies, The God Machine was a #1 best-seller in Spain, and The Wall Street Murder Club (The Hunting Club) was optioned for theatrical release by Warner Bros. -- I remain what's called in the business a "mid list" novelist. In other words, most publishers are no longer that interested in publishing me ... including Random House and Penguin, which have historically published my works. So, I mostly self-publish these days through Cornucopia Press of Philadelphia, and I'm testing out platforms like Patreon.

I'm also a journalist, commentator, and political activist. As such, I interview individuals I find interesting, and write pieces about the state of our political system and the world generally.

Finally, I'm a poet, musician, gourmet, fly-fisherman, and the primary custodial parent of a teen daughter (divorced single dad) ... so don't be surprised if I throw some of that in the mix.

Let me take this opportunity to thank all of you, my fans and my followers, for supporting me on this journey. It's damned hard to make a living today as a writer. Without you and your help, I would be lost.

Before I became a single dad (and primary custodial parent of my daughter) following my divorce, I was faced with a choice: either find a nanny to raise my child for me as I continued my career in digital advertising; or, raise my daughter myself, give up my $250k-$500k/year salary, and try and make a living as a novelist, journalist, and part-time digital marketing consultant. I chose the latter. Today, after downsizing, we can scrape by on around $2.5k/mo. So, that's what I'm shooting for.
