John Decarteret was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. He is 31 years old and lives with his fiance and two children. He likes sports and cooking and spending time with his family. He began writing at the age of 29 after seeing a musician in a television interview. The singer said “Stop watching people chase their dreams on talent shows on tv, and spend that time chasing your own dream” so he did. Ten months later he wrote his first full length book.
He writes in his spare time, when his children are in bed or at school, and any other time he has to spare. His fiance is in ill health and he had to quit his day job to be carer for her and the two children.
