John Righten

Author

John has delivered medical aid to orphanages and hospitals across the globe, including Romania during the revolution, South America and Bosnia during the war. His Rogues novels are based on the characters he encountered during his many dangerous missions, when he enlisted unlikely support from those he calls ‘benevolent rogues’. These men and women used their wit and guile to deliver medical aid and help save lives.
He has written The Rogues Trilogy, a rousing adventure set in the two years leading up to WWII, which starts with Churchill’s Rogue, followed by The Gathering Storm and The Darkest Hour. John followed this with his 1960s epic adventure, The Lochran Trilogy: Churchill’s Assassin, The Last Rogue and The Alpha Wolves, based on an assassination attempt on Sir Winston Churchill – a man who the world knows is already dying. John has just completed his 1990s based The Lenka Trilogy thrillers, Heartbreak, Resilience and Reflection, which are centered on a young schoolteacher who volunteers to deliver aid to children’s orphanages in Romania and later to Bosnia during the war, who finds herself in the company of rogues and the target of mercenaries.
John has also written a short, humorous play, The Pane of Rejection, based on a fictitious interview between a wry author and an acerbic critic.
In 2016, Churchill’s Rogue was shortlisted for the Inaugural Wilbur Smith Adventure awards. In 2020, Resilience was awarded the US Readers’ Favorite 5-star award. In 2020, Heartbreak won the Page Turner Spectrum Publications Award.
John has worked in over forty occupations, ranging from grave digger, cocktail barman and tree-lopper, to professional poker player and is currently employed as a government ‘Transactor’ covering major infrastructure programmes across the country. His adventures continue, as he has ridden a British Army motorbike across India to support several children’s charities and worked in a mental health facility in Manhattan.
But by far, his greatest challenge is working with his wife to raise their own ‘rogue’, their six-year-old son, Logan.
