John Hart was born in 1965 in North Carolina.
He became a defence attorney but dreamed of being a writer. Eventually, disenchanted with spending his time around criminal, he left the law to write. With a young family and no income he hoped that he wouldn’t need to go back to his job. He was spurred on by the faith of those around him. Two Edgar Alan Poe awards later (as well as other awards) he knows that he will not have to return to practising law.
His novels are set in the South and based on his experience dealing with criminals and the ripples of destruction that they create that unravel lives.
John Hart now lives in rural Virginia with his wife and children.
