Mixed episode 48 of the Bailey’s Writing Tips podcast went live today, Sunday 19th February. In episode 47 I’d read out a couple of guest blog posts on eBooks from Paul Hurst; this podcast featured two posts from John J Hohn on the topics of story editing and publishing.

A Midwesterner by birth, John J. Hohn claims Yankton, South Dakota as his hometown. He graduated from high school there in 1957. After four years earning a degree in English at St. John’s University (MN), he became a teacher. His first wife, Elaine Finfrock, also of Yankton, and he had five children; four sons and a daughter. They divorced in 1977.
In 1964, John joined The Travelers in Minneapolis, MN and began a 40-year career in the financial services industry. During that time, in addition to The Travelers, he held positions with Blue Cross / Blue Shield of Minnesota, Wilson Learning Corporation, and Wachovia Bank and Trust. Hohn retired at the end of 2007 after 17 years as a Financial Advisor with Merrill Lynch in Winston-Salem, NC.
In 1986, he married Melinda Folger McLeod and gained a stepson. Currently, the couple divides their time each year between a cabin near West Jefferson, NC and a cottage in Southport, NC. In addition to writing, Hohn enjoys golf, music, and reading history. He has already begun work on his second novel, a sequel to Deadly Portfolio: A Killing Hedge Funds. As yet no title has been announced for the new book.
