Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Best-selling author John Foxjohn epitomizes the phrase "been there--done that." Born and raised in the rural East Texas town of Nacogdoches, he quit high school and joined the Army at seventeen: Viet Nam veteran, Army Airborne Ranger, policeman and homicide detective, retired teacher and coach, now he is a multi-published author.

Growing up, Foxjohn developed a love of reading that will never end. In fact, he refers to himself as a "readalcoholic." He began with the classics and still lists Huckleberry Finn as one of his all time favorites. Later, he discovered Louis L'Amour and besides owning every book he wrote, Foxjohn says he's read every one of them at least five times.

However, when he was twelve, Foxjohn read a book about Crazy Horse, and decided right then he would also write one about the famous Lakota leader. After many "yondering" years as L'Amour called them, he spent ten years researching his historical fiction, Journey of the Spirit, now titled The People's Warrior.

The book did well in sales and quite a few people, even today, still believe it's one of his best. However, it was not the first he published. Code of Deceit, a story about a young Houston homicide detective came first, and became the first in four David Mason books.

Foxjohn's third book, Cold Tears, the second in the series, set an example that would be hard to live up to. His editor even said she didn't believe he could ever write a better book. The awards and accolades for the novel bore out her remarks.

Other novels would appear, but then Foxjohn hit a snag. He found out that he had cancer. For a year an idea had percolated in the back of his mind about writing a legal romance thriller with a woman defense attorney as the protagonist. Writing a novel through the eyes of a woman is something not too many men attempt.

In Foxjohn's own words, "I thought I was going to die so why not give it a shot." He was wrong about the dying part; like so many other events in his life, he survived, and so did the idea. It became his novel Tattered Justice. For many reasons, it will remain one of his favorites.

Foxjohn has published mysteries, romantic suspenses, historical fiction, legal thrillers, and coming in August 2013, a true crime.
When he's not writing, teaching writing classes, or speaking to different writing groups and conferences, Foxjohn loves to spend time square dancing, working in his rose garden, or in his garage doing woodwork. However, his passion outside of family and writing is without a doubt, anything to do with the Dallas Cowboys.

Your chance to chat with me

Beginning August 5, 2013 through August 14, 2013—I will begin what I call Skype chats. I’m setting aside two hours a day for seven days to chat with people about my true crime, Killer Nurse.

A schedule of the chat times is below. I will set aside 10 minute time slots for everyone who wants to participate. You will have ten minutes of one-on-one time to talk to me and ask questions.

This may sound difficult and or expensive, but it is actually neither.…

It's release day

Guess what?


Yes, you get to hear from me again, and yes it is about one of my books. However, if you hang around a moment, I will make it worth your while.


I have published some good novels in the past, but none that excites me more than Paradox. I had a novel voted the best mystery in the world by readers and I’m telling you Paradox is better.


Hey, don’t take my word for it—go see for yourself.…

Something to see

I published my first book, Code of Deceit, in 2007, and I was fortunate enough to have it hit several best-seller lists. I followed that one with Journey of the Spirit—now renamed The People’s Warrior. This one, a historical fiction did fairly well. It was even voted second best in the mainstream category by readers.


Then In 2008, I published Cold Tears. This book exceeded all my expectations, and I have high ones. Voted the best mystery in the world, the sales and accolades…
