He is the author of more than forty published books—many about food, wine, and travel, plus the West Texas Noir series that includes the Chef Brett mysteries starting with Marfa Shadows. When not spinning yarns set in his favorite corner of the Lone Star State, John hosts the Delicious Mischief food and wine radio program on NewsRadio 740 KTRH in Houston and Talk 1370 in Austin. He is a regular contributor to Houston and Prime Living magazines, as well as to Houston ArtsWeek. His other works for Bright Sky Press include the new Lone Star Chefs and the iconic Follow the Smoke: 14,783 Miles of Great Texas Barbecue.
