John's dog Sparky was diagnosed with "incurable" lymphoma in the year 2000, at the age of six. When the dog, an Australian terrier, decided to beat the odds and survive, John and his wife Josée decided to write a book about it. Josée was already an experienced writer, her work including the novelized history "Buying Louisiana: An Eye Witness's Account of the Louisiana Purchase" and many columns printed in her native Belgium. This was their first artistic collaboration, resulting in the highly successful book "Sparky Fights Back," listed below. John has been heard on over 200 radio station across America and national television, talking about animal cancer and their book.
When it became apparent to John that Sparky's cancer might have been caused by over-vaccination, he began to study that topic, finally writing a book about it (alone this time). "Stop the Shots!" was number one in its category on Amazon's "Hot New Releases" for three months. The book continues to sell briskly as more pet owners discover the dangers of vaccinations.
John has also written many online pieces, mostly on animal health topics.
