Guest Poster - Laurence St. John

I promised Laurence St. John, a fellow "Imajineer" and author of the Metatron series, a spot on this blog a while back and thank heavens he remembered because the summer ate my brain.

At the age of 23 and after three years of dedication, hard work and sweat, in 1988, I received my first-degree black belt (Shodan) in Tae Kwon Do. This gave me the self-confidence and perseverance needed to surmount anything that came my way. That is why my main character, Tyler, is involved with martial arts. I have personal knowledge of Tae Kwon Do therefore it was fun creating a character with this great ability.
Question to readers: Have you ever taken any type of martial arts class? If not, would you like too?
 While working in the steel industry, my place of employment changed hands for the third time. Fortunately I was able to retain my job.

In the same year my first granddaughter Kendall was born. This was one of the most uplifting moments of my life. It was at this time when I became inspired as well as determined to write my penned-up thoughts on paper.

A few years later, and many hours of writing, editing, revising and re-editing, it was finished. This journey had many bumps and curves in the road but at the end, it was all worth it.
Book 2 Now Available


One ruthless demon faces one relentless teenager…

Thirteen-year-old Tyler Thompson is on the verge of becoming a superhero, but he must prove himself so he can earn the remainder of his superpowers and fulfill his destiny.

When his grandfather, Benjamin, is held prisoner at AREA 51, where the eternal powers are presumed to be hidden, Tyler attempts to penetrate the base’s heavy security. However, Dr. Mason Payne, the evil scientist who killed Tyler's father, has insidious plans of his own.

Hunted by an unknown entity, Tyler races against the clock to retrieve the superpowers, rescue his family and help the others who are depending on him. And when all hope seems lost, help comes in a power he didn’t know he possessed—a mysterious weapon known as The Mystical Blade.

  1. I took some martial arts and wanted to take more. I tried to talk my first boyfriend into giving me lessons. He was a black belt in Aikido. Later I took Wendo at university and I used to watch my son's karate lessons and practice his katas with him.
