John Adrian Tomlin was born with congenital muscular dystrophy (more specifically, merosin deficient muscular dystrophy) which basically means that I’m physically weak for life and wheelchair bound. My dad was in the navy, so we moved around until we settled and remained in Oceanside, California. My main hobby was playing video games. I loved it so much that I decided to make it a career and become a video game designer. I got my B.S. in Game Art and Design from Westwood College Online. Unfortunately, the game industry is harsh and I was unable to get my dream job, so I decided to write books. It’s just a different way to tell a story rather than in video game format.
