Biography's Source:

John Shors has spent much of his life abroad. After graduating in 1991 from Colorado College—where he studied creative writing and received an English degree—Shors pursued his dream of living in Asia: first in Kyoto, Japan, where he taught English for three years; and then backpacking across the continent. Over the next few years he visited ten countries, climbed the Himalayas of Nepal, and explored the monuments of India. Throughout the Indian subcontinent he acquainted himself intimately with customs and cultures that, at least on the surface, are contrary to Western modes of thought.

After returning to America, John Shors became a newspaper reporter in his home state of Iowa. Within two years he had won a statewide journalism award for investigative reporting. He then moved to Boulder, Colorado, where he began a career as a public relations executive, working for clients ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to local nonprofits.

Shors currently lives outside Boulder with his wife and two young children. Beneath a Marble Sky is his first novel.
