John D. Sperry
John D. Sperry was born in Bellflower, California in 1979, but relocated with his family in 1985 to the small town of Roseburg, Oregon, the place John would call home until he left on a two-year LDS mission to Italy in 1998.
In 2001, John married the love of his life, Sarah, and, in the midst of earning two degrees from the University of Oregon, the couple had four children: Arwen, Eleanor, Jack, and Alice.
John earned a B.A. in English in 2007, and a M.Ed. in Teaching and Learning in 2008. He is currently a 7th Grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher in Springfield, Oregon where he lives with his family.
Apart from teaching and writing, John is also an accomplished drummer--having played for more than 23 years, and he's a freelance photographer shooting University of Oregon sports for DuckTerritory.com.
John is working on a number of projects including a children's book and a Christmas tale, and he hopes to soon finish book two of his Immortal Light series.
