John Manouelian


John Manouelian is an accidental novelist at best; and this is his very first effort. Writing a novel never entered his mind until he had written and recorded an eleven-song rock opera of the same name. Spurred on by a couple of music listeners who suggested that he put the rock opera story to print, he finally got around to doing so, albeit many years later. He certainly hopes that everyone who reads the story will find it to be heartfelt, humorous, enjoyable, and memorable.

Before writing this novel, John spent many years working in the field of Information Technology at the U.S. Department of Energy and other Federal agencies as well. He lives in Maryland with his wife and family. And he enjoys playing guitar and writing, performing, and recording music in his spare time.
