Red, White, and the Blues: A Long and Hard Ride over Treacherous Terrain by John R. Hall takes its reader on a compelling nonlinear journey. Its narrative centers on an unforgettable true story of a man coming to terms with his own demons the only way he knows how: by losing himself on the open road. This is the story of a man, of a country, of debilitating lows, and, ultimately, of redemption.

“So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?” ― Hunter S. Thompson

John said, "The real problem with writing a book in this day and age and trying to get it noticed is that America is a soundbite society with an attention span which is measured in nanoseconds."

John is the author of Red, White, and the Blues: A Long and Hard Ride over Treacherous Terrain and the founder of the Hunting For writers blog.

John studied journalism, communications, psychology, and the dramatic arts while attending City College in San Diego, California. A lifelong motorcycle enthusiast, John has been a street performer, cab driver, magician, IT/IS specialist, long-haul trucker, soldier, and oil field worker—all while struggling with PTSD, childhood abuse, parental abandonment, and dyslexia.

At sixty-two, John now lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he penned the stories of his travels while hoping to get back home to Seattle, Washington.
