I'm a writer, musician, photographer, and Web developer from Taos, New Mexico. My main site is my FarrFeedblog, where you can read sample chapters from the books below and some of the best writing in the universe. I also have a daily New Mexico photo blog called FotoFeed. My Twitter page is here. There's even a video channel.
I currently have two books for sale:
The latest is TAOS SOUL: Love Stories, Heroes, and Wild Adventure (Kindle Edition) at Amazon. It's a collection of 62 individual stories about life in northern New Mexico, the terrible beauty of Taos, and the author's struggle to survive amidst extremes of weather, spirit, and the intense tri-cultural energy of el Norte.
"At age 55 the author and his wife, a college professor, trade burn-out for glory on a pure leap of faith. After years of the life of an artist at their country home on the Eastern Shore, John finds work as an Internet columnist and editor to fill in the gap while she turns to her music. In the 21st-century American Southwest, there's a bull in the window and a rat under the bed. John and his wife dodge gunshots at Christmas, sink in mud to the axles, and find human bones in the dirt. Along the way he meets a shaman, sacred clowns, belly dancers, Buddhist monks, knife-toting tough guys, a guru mechanic, Jesus himself, and the devil's own dogs."
Both of these books feature the best writing I've done over the last 10 years. I guarantee they're like nothing you've ever read before.

I'm publishing it here to see if this network is alive or dead! :-) What you really ought to do is read it there, because my graphics are way cooler than what works on these pages, AND there's an actual bull elk mating call sound you can play! But this is the kind of thing I write about. As long as you're here, enjoy! -… Continue
Here's the latest video from my FarrFeed Video channel at YouTube. It gives you a good idea of what it's like to walk around in my skin these days. I'm @TaosJohn on Twitter, which is where the title comes… Continue
