John Henry Hardy was born in Princeton, New Jersey, and served more than thirty three years in the US Marine Corps, and is also a retired AT&T Territorial Support Manager (Marketing). At the end of his first stint in the Corps, he attended Rutgers University and was awarded a bachelor's degree there, and later a master's degree in Business Management at the University of Phoenix.
As a Public Affairs Officer for the Marine Corps, he wrote numerous newspaper and magazine articles that were published throughout the United States. One of his published articles earned him the George Washington Honor Medal by Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, and for another press release he was awarded the Freedoms Foundation Honor Certificate.
John is the author of several novels including; Whisper In My Ear-a romance/historical saga of the Vietnam War; The Place Where The Giant Fell-a romance/historical novel about prejudice in pre-statehood Arizona; When Brothers Meet-a romance/historical premonition of what would happen to the United States and the rest of the globe if China continues its quest of controlling the world's oil supply; The Day God Played Baseball-a fictional account of a small town bully who wants to dominate the county's Little League Baseball title, even if he has to cheat to do so; The Legend Of The Phantom Effect-a tale of an advanced civilization whose sun is dying and its ETs secretly seek refuge on planet Earth. But their clandestine arrival is viewed with suspicion and intrigue by China and Russia, as the world is unknowingly threatened with Armageddon-the mutually assured destruction of the planet.
Mr. Hardy also taught college for several years and now lives in Mesa, Arizona, with his wife Lucy, and is continuing to enjoy his writing career.
