Author Biography

John Milor is an author of several books, and radio talk show guest for numerous programs, such as Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, and the Art Bell show.

Milor has earned two Associate degrees, a Bachelor degree in Information Systems, a Master degree in Professional Screenwriting, and is currently working toward a second Master degree in Cyber Security. He serves in the military as a Senior Master Sergeant, in charge of Cyber Operations at his unit.

For over two decades, Milor has written a number of books in varying genre. While Christian Ufology and paranormal subjects form a common thread through much of Milor's writing, they do not define him. He also writes poetry, several novels that incorporate elements of sci-fi, comedy, romance, and coming of age, (such as this book - Jimmy Prophet's Library), a children's illustrated novel, which is a metaphoric rendition of a famous biblical account, a spiritual biography, and several other books that are still in the works, all of which are different genres than these.

Much of the inspiration for Jimmy Prophet's Library comes from Milor's childhood; he was raised in the backwoods of Van Buren, Arkansas.

All are invited to visit Milor's website to read some of his books and articles; a few are downloadable for free! www.AliensAndTheAntichrist.com, www.TheStrongDelusion.net, and www.AliensInTheBible.com. Milor is also on Facebook and YouTube (http://www.Facebook.com/john.milor, and www.YouTube.com/johnmilor), and he welcomes emails: jmilor@yahoo.com.

When your favourite secret playground has been vandalised with a sign that reads "Archaeological Site #238, do not disturb, official archaeological research," what's a boy to do? He goes in, of course. After all, Jim had already survived a strange encounter with a being not of his own reality (i.e. a stunningly attractive girl, because such heavenly things can't really exist). Following this rare encounter, he returned home with plans to play on the vines. But this latest development piqued his interest. Evidence suggested his familiar haunt had, in fact, been an Indian burial ground, but his desire not to anger anything otherworldly saw him venture further afield and inadvertently make his own historical and monumental discovery. But what he found was more than a few arrow tips and old bones. What he found opened his mind to a whole new world of possibilities.
 
Edged with a humour all too familiar for a teenager facing many of life's sometimes uncomfortable situations, Jimmy Prophet's Library contains the correct mixture of dramatic flair, devastation, and elation. There is certainly a lot of information in this story. As Jim expands his mind and understanding, so too does author John W. Milor invite and encourage the reader to do the same. From math to biology, sport to nature, the possibilities seem endless as Jim astounds peers and professionals alike. Jim's abilities put me a lot in mind of JJ from No Ordinary Family; his brain becomes like a super computer able to link, calculate, and correlate data he has encountered. In the hands of a hormone charged teenager, it could be a terrifying gift indeed. The book itself is certainly packed with knowledge, and if there is one thing a reader will take away from it, it will be the importance of challenging and developing ideas. I really liked the combination of story meets encouragement to learn and expand horizons.
