I've known John since the Seattle World Horror Con in 2001. (I got roped into helping run it, although I'm not a Horror fan.) A friendly acquaintance more than a friend, but I'll still miss him greatly.
You can learn more about John, plus find links to buy his books, at his website. https://www.japitts.net/
