My name is John Ethier. I live in Minnesota. I've been writing short stories and essays off and on for the last fifteen years. I always said that someday I would write a novel, and now I have.

The book is called "The Little Red Boat," and it is now available on Amazon.

I started this blog as a way to share this aspect of my life with people: short fiction I've written over the years, experiences I've gone through — including what it has been like to finish a novel and all the things that go along with it: finding an editor, designing a cover, marketing and promotion, etc. It's also a place for me to write. I'm not writing a novel right now (although I hope to be soon) and this gives me a place to jot down whatever pops into my head.


Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you take away something positive from it; maybe a short story you enjoy, or a blog post that speaks to experiences you've had in your own life, or maybe just a laugh or two. ​
