WHY I CHOSE CAYDEN
John has always been enthusiastic about great writing, and is privileged to be turning his passion for painting and design and teaching ecology into a new career as a professional author - even though he gets pittance from Amazon.
"I chose 'CAYDEN' because it means survivor or warrior in some languages. I'm a long term survivor and proud of it! Dang poor because of it, but proud." - John Cayden
"Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale"
