Bio: I have been working in business for over forty years and now have the time to work in special areas of interest. My passion has always been to create compelling stories of fiction. I have authored two novels and am working on my third. The first novel is still in manuscript form and being utilized as a door stop in the laundry room. The second is a thriller fiction novel of 92,000 words and has been launched by Martin Sisters Publishing. I have finished my third novel and it is at the publisher. My fourth is underway and is about 30,000 words.  I also write short stories and have had a number published. My short story Cold Night Out won an honorable mention in the Writers Digest popular Fiction Contest. I dabble in poetry and have published a few on my blog. I am trying new forms and will sneak out of the dressing room and into the water once I think one is worth reading. I am primarily a Haiku fan. The one time I read a piece to a person their only comment was, “it doesn’t rhyme.” I will continue to write and hopefully my blog at JohnWHowell.com will provide some entertainment and an interesting thought or two.

I live by the Gulf of Mexico with my wife Molly and an assortment of loving rescue pets.

  4. John Howell and John Fioravanti, what a great show today! Thank you both for your kind words! John H., John F. cut you off because he doesn’t like it when anyone else is “raving” about me. He wants to hold the title of #TopNonnieRaver always. Silly #JealousJohnF! LOL! Thanks, guys, you both were great!

    Jenny Sherwin you have enthusiasm and it shows in your segment. Hope the snow doesn’t stop you!


    1. Thanks, Shirley. We’ve stocked up and plan to stay in until absolutely necessary. The more people who stay off the roads, the better it will be for the cleanup crews. So happy to be a part of RRBC!


  8. Hi, Nonnie. Thanks for everything you’ve done to make RRBC what it is–an incredibly supportive network for authors! I really enjoyed talking to John Howell today. He is a great interviewer! Jennie


    1. We’re so glad you had a good time, Jennie! It was truly your show today! Thank you for making it an enjoyable time for us all! John H. is great, isn’t he?


  9. What a great show today, with Author, Jennie Sherwin! Jennie is one of those guests that we need a couple of hours to talk to, she’s such a great interview! Thanks, Jennie! You and John H. simply made my morning! And again, thank you for such kind words! #I’mTrulyHumbled


  10. After listening to the interview with Michael Lynes, I bought the Kindle version of his book. Can’t wait to start reading!


  11. Well – I’m about to listen to the re-run of John’s talk with Simon Cornish after the live recording due to what seems to be a recurring sound glitch. I did manage to catch the tail end of the show but dint of turning off the Twitter #RRBCSpotlightHonors feed page – it seems to be that you can have the BTR page going OR the Twitter page but not both!
    I have to say that it was the twitter feed page that was worst affected as it seemed to be the same with last Saturday’s show too. Those flippin’ gremlins! I know John and Simon were having a good time ‘cos I could hear them laughing! Never mind – will catch up with you later on 😀


  12. Dropping in to say how very much I enjoyed listening and contributing to Stuart and John’s show this Thursday gone! Go to http://bit.ly/1kuWf4d (or hit the Archive link above) to hear it yourself – especially if you’ve endured a life crisis of any description, as Stuart’s memoir provides much food for thought and inspiration on how to find YOUR right way through life’s trials and tribulation 😀


  13. So excited about Rachel Pruchno’s interview today on “SPOTLIGHT” HONORS! I read SURROUNDED BY MADNESS and my review is located here on Nonnie’s “Rave” Reviews page > http://wp.me/P49Fi9-c. I’m strongly suggesting you pick up a copy of this book, but after this interview, you will know for yourself that it’s a MUST READ! Have a great interview, Rachel and John. I’ll be listening!


  14. This was one of my all-time favorite interviews here on Rave Waves! Thank you Micki Peluso for sharing your beautiful, heart-warming/heart-breaking story with us about your experience of losing your beautiful daughter. Thank you, Bette Stevens, for standing in to assist Micki during this interview, at times I couldn’t tell your voices apart. And, to our host, John Howell, I’m not sure anyone else could have done it better. Many THANKS to you, my friend! Another great RRBC Production!

    John Fioravanti, what a great show Producer you are! THANK YOU!


    1. Thank you Nonnie for the kind words.


  15. Will be so nice to Host the show if nothing else but to talk to some pretty wonderful people.


  16. I thoroughly enjoyed today’s show with guest Bette A. Stevens – well done!! I’m a fan!


  17. Great interview with Nancy Bell, John.


  18. […] *Nancy M. Bell, Host – “SPOTLIGHT” HONORS […]
