Welcome to my new website.  I hope it helps you to get to know me -- and my books -- a little better.  Please feel free to look around.  Comments are always appreciated.  I love reading your emails:  write me at jmaynardcarr@gmail.com.  Thanks for spending a little of your time with me.

I was born in Arizona a long time ago and still live in the Phoenix area with my wife and three children. My family also includes two big dogs and several cats.  I received undergraduate and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees from Colorado State University in the 1980's—before the internet.  

I have been a writer for many years.  My writing career began more than twenty years ago with cowboy poetry, which I recited at gatherings throughout the Southwestern United States.  I tend to write the kinds of stories I like to read.  My diverse list of literary influences includes classics by J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Dickens, and William Shakespeare, humor by Baxter Black, political thrillers by Tom Clancy and Lee Child, and yes, even erotica by E.L. James.

What I'm reading now:
-Personal by Lee Child

Just finished:
-A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
-Crimes of Love by The Marquis de Sade
