Johnny Sprang - Author, Musician, Photographer, & Philosopher


Welcome and thanks for visiting my site. I have always enjoyed creative writing, but it wasn't until a several years ago, after I retired (I found I had considerable time on my hands) that I began to take it more seriously. During my career in the military and in professional business it seemed like I was always writing for someone else and I never really thought about writing for me. During my college days I always enjoyed writing a thesis on various subjects. I was a staff writer and photographer for the campus  newspaper at two colleges where I studied. That was a long time ago and it wasn't until recently, while I was cruising down memory lane, I read the stuff I wrote back then, and decided that I should write some new stuff. If you decide to read some of my stuff let me know what you think. I always appreciate good constructive criticism. I welcome you to leave any comments you care to (no bashing please) by clicking on the Contact Me button. If you like my writings, I'll probably post your comments on this site, if you don't like my writings, well, then I probably won't.

I'm a family guy and retired business professional. I spent a lot of time serving my country that included many years of active service with the United States Air Force during and after the Vietnam War and with the United States Navy Reserve while attending college. I've been a business manager, professional sales representative, account executive, insurance agent, and mortgage broker. I like to write on topics that I am passionate about and I also like to write fiction based on true places and events. I spend most of my time enjoying my family. On nice days I like to go walking through the woods, I practice Tai Chi and Yoga, and I continue to study and practice the martial arts I learned while living in Japan when I was in my mid twenties. I've studied Judo, earned a brown belt in Japanese Shotokan Karate, and a black belt in Korean Hapkido. Some years ago while I was still working full time I developed a program based on some of the techniques in my martial arts training. I called it Street Smart Self Defense and taught it as an adult education class at my local community college.

I've been a photographer for more than forty years. In fact back in the day, that is one of the ways I supported my family while attending college, and as much as I love photography, I also love to write. I've written songs, poetry, non-fiction, fictional short stories, and a novella, a few of my fictional stories are available as a spec script for television or the big screen. There are eleven non-fiction books in the self help or self improvement field. These are topics of concern in today's daily life and they nearly affect everyone. The information in these books are based on my own education, experiences, and research, as well as the experiences of others. A blog will be coming soon and it will provide useful information and updates so be sure to subscribe when it becomes available. So anyway, have a look around the site, if you like what you see and read, that would be very cool, and I would greatly appreciate it. If you don't like what you see or read, that's cool too, sorry, but you know the old expression, you can't please everyone.
