HEY,

thanks for stopping by...

 

I'm John M. Nielson... just writing to keep up with the demons, dreams and
diversions having their way with me.

From strange beginnings come strange stories. Mom from Lithuania, pops from Greece, born in Montreal, grew up in Toronto, now living in St. Paul, MN, I have some colorful experiences to draw from. 

Time to pop the lid on stories I've stuffed into coffee tins, bled into diaries and hidden in hard drives for decades.

Creativity. Courage. Voice. Joy. Those are themes I explore in personal, 10-minute reads I publish on Medium.

Check them out here.

Flash-fiction, first drafts about people trying to survive the next five minutes of their lives... I read them, share how they got started, ask your opinion on where they should go next.

Listen to them here.

STORIES COMING SOON

Working on "Greethuania." My novel about crazy-ass relatives who meet for the first time at a testy will reading, slam shots of Metaxinkai together, then bust out to dodge heavy German artillery and even heavier ancestral evil to get their paws on a $2 billion inheritance.
