Johnny Sprang - Author, Musician, Photographer, & Philosopher

 

Hey? 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 myself.

While I was attending college 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 began reading the stuff I wrote back then, and I said to myself, hey, this is not too bad. At least that's what I think. If you decide to read some of my stuff or listen to some of my music let me know what you think. I'll always appreciate good constructive criticism. I welcome you to leave any comments you care to (no bashing please) by clicking on the 'contact' 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 during college. I've been a business manager, professional sales representative, account executive, insurance agent, and mortgage broker.

In addition to writing on topics that I am passionate about, I spend most of my time enjoying my family and grandkids. 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.

I've been a photographer for more than forty years. In fact back in the day, that is one of the ways I earned money 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.
