Spotlight: John Thomas Dodds

John Thomas Dodds

John Thomas Dodds is a student of life whose unending fascination with his subject is distilled in in fifteen Amazon-published works.  Most are poetic, but Dodds has lately ventured into fiction and has even written books for children.

The themes of Dodds’ poetry are universal and expressed with a simplicity that invites readers of every genre to follow him on shared journeys.  He captures the simple joy of being, and the peace of forgiveness and forgetfulness. His works are richly introspective, and his self-reflection brooks no boundaries.

Aging Beautifully In Light Of YouRelationships between couples play prominently across John’s work.  From the most romantic of poetry to meditations on growing old together (Aging Beautifully In Light Of You), he reaffirms the power of lifelong love.

A Long Way From NowhereJohn’s first novel, A Long Way From Nowhere, is set in Dallas, Texas during the social turbulence of the 1960’s.  It draws upon his own life as a young man, and affords a provocative view of America’s identity crisis seen through eyes of a young Canadian as he sheds the last of his youthful innocence.

A Sneaky Twitch of an ItchDodds’s background as a teacher steps into the foreground in his two works crafted for children:  A Sneaky Twitch of an Itch (illustrated), and A Journey Home.

One thought on “Spotlight: John Thomas Dodds”

  1. John T. Dodds’s poetry is intensely observant, bright, and loving, whether of nature or the complexities of human relationships or just a walk through the village. He is a fabulous reader of his own verse. He makes it swing. What little I’ve seen of his prose has made me want to see more.
