MARTYRS, HEROES AND FOOLS, by John Wells

John Wells is a retired naval engineer living in Annapolis, Maryland. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, he cut his teeth by writing technical documents for Navy shipbuilding programs that resulted in his ability to express ideas clearly and elegantly, but it’s been a lifelong obsession with classical literature that honed his skill to become a professional wordsmith who writes fiction that has readability and character-based dynamic storylines. A literary realist, he has developed a writing style suited to modern readers in this publishing era when novels have to compete with television and video games. He believes that “following the crowd” in writing guarantees mediocrity.
