About Me

John W. Bebout is a poet who has been published in such literary magazines as 'The Esthetic Apostle,' 'The Paragon Press' and 'Horseshoes & Hand Grenades,' among others. 'The Cause of Darkness' is his first novel and, always a poet, he has started each chapter of the book with original prose or quotes, which give the book a lyrical quality rarely found in historical fiction.

In a former life, Bebout was a scientist who authored/coauthored more than two-dozen juried, technical articles. Bebout has lived in Virginia for more than 30 years. It is, he says, "A place where romance and adventure are as pervasive as honeysuckle growing on a fence line."
