Dr. John L. Flynn is an author, psychologist, and college dean. Born in Chicago, Illinois. He earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from the University of South Florida and a PhD from Southern California University. He is a member of the Science Fiction Writers of America, and has been a regular contributor and columnist to dozens of science fiction magazines.

In 1997, John switched gears from writing and literature to study psychology, and earned a degree as a clinical psychologist. His study, “The Etiology of Sexual Addiction: Childhood Trauma as a Primary Determinant,” has broken new ground in the diagnosis and treatment of sexual addiction.

In 1977, he received the M. Carolyn Parker award for outstanding journalism for his freelance work on several Florida daily newspapers. He sold his first book, Future Threads, in 1985, and has subsequently had twelve other books published, including Cinematic Vampires: The Living Dead on FilmThe Films of Arnold SchwarzeneggerDissecting AliensVisions in Light and ShadowWar of the Worlds: From Wells to Spielberg75 Years of Universal Monsters50 Years of Hammer Horror101 Superheroes of the Silver Screen2001: Beyond the InfiniteThe Jovian DilemmaPhantoms of the Opera: Behind the Mask, and Everything I Know About Life I Learned from James Bond and Future Prime: Top Ten Science Fiction Films (published by Library Tales Publishing and co-authored with Bob Blackwood). There are planned sequels for both. He has also written the Introduction to Signet’s new edition of Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera, and the Afterword to Signet’s new printing of The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells.

From 2002 to 2004, Dr. Flynn was nominated for three Hugo Awards for his science fiction writing. John also received an honorable mention for his unproduced screenplay for The Jovian Dilemma in the 2003 Screenplay Festival writing competition.

His first novel, Intimate Bondage was published by BelleBooks. The other three in the series, Architects of ArmageddonMurder on Air Force One (2017), Terror at G-20 (2017), and Merchants of Death (contract pending) are published by Argus Publishing.

Flynn is currently writing the biography of Angelique Pettyjohn, a dear friend during the last ten years of her life, who died in 1992. She was an actress, Las Vegas showgirl, and Star Trek siren.She was also mother to Elvis Presley, Jr., Elvis’ son, who was recently granted permission by a federal court to use the name, having proven through DNA that Angelique was his mother and Elvis was his father. She also kept a sex diary, slept with many Hollywood actors like Warren Beatty, Jack Nicolson, Ryan O’Neal, etc. and starred in a lot of movies and television shows. She was married four times, came back from a drug addiction, and re-ignited her career in the 1980s. She and Flynn met in 1982, keeping in touch by phone and in person until her death. Having given Flynn permission to write her life story, he kept notes and in 2005 began researching her life in depth. Great reading for anyone who loves movies and the people in movies, as well as all Elvis fans. In 2016, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. Dozens of books were published for the anniversary, and as well-known as she was for her role on Star Trek, and then afterward for her appearances at the Star Trek conventions, this is a must-have. www.imdb.com/name/nm0678821/bio

Intimate Bondage Reviews

Intimate Bondage is an erotic thriller which allows access to the taboo world of S & M, internet porn and who is actually participating— regular men and women, politicians, entertainers, and even those we trust with the safety and welfare of our children.

What if the person you fell in love with was a serial killer? Kate Dawson, a homicide detective with a past, faces that chilling possibility as she penetrates the seedy underworld of porn shops, internet sex sites, and S&M clubs to catch her man.

Someone has a fetish for world destruction…

Inspector Kate Dawson is called to investigate a mass murder; a call that will change her life, and possibly the whole world—forever.

Certain parents have been directed to put their children to death. They believe they are the Chosen Ones, destined by God to inherit the Earth. The charismatic leader of End Times Ministries, whose grand plan includes stoking the fires of Armageddon, has ordered parishioners to close ranks and prepare for a holy war.

Kate Dawson knows this is not God’s will, but that of a dangerous, diabolical mind that controls the lives of his people. “They plan to start a war!”

“Nearly a million people live in the San Francisco Bay area,” Senator Santiago said.
“That’s a lot of lives that would be lost, but nowhere near the hundreds of millions of lives lost in a global war, and the starvation, and sickness, and disease that follows.”

“So, you’re saying, the Doomsday clock is ticking?” Kate asked, already sensing the answer.

“It’s five minutes to midnight . . .”

Kate would have been the first one to confess that she didn’t know a whole lot about politics and religion—but she did know there was a group of fanatics out there who were determined to move the hands of the clock closer to midnight, and it was her duty to stop them.

“I’ve started reading, and it grabs you right out of the gate…”

Murder on Air Force One (2018)

Murder on Air Force One Reviews 

 

When Inspector Kate Dawson is called in the wee hours of the morning, little did she know what would be waiting for her on the tarmac of San Francisco International Airport. Air Force One has landed with a corpse in the lavatory—Mrs. President and the First Man were on board with a slew of reporters and other presidential personnel. It seems someone enjoyed kinky foreplay, like having their oxygen supply limited, a gasper. It just went too far…or did someone finish her off?

International politics, conspiracies, affairs, cover-ups, and all involving the First Family…

Terror at G-20 (2018)

 

Published by Argus Publishing

From what begins as the simple murder of a sex worker, Kate Dawson follows the clues to human trafficking and ultimately the Asian sex trade. Then, set against the back-drop of the G-20 Summit in San Francisco, Dawson struggles to stop a North Korean General’s master plan of bringing about economic chaos in the West by preventing five Asian women, each implanted with a deadly toxin, from destroying the world’s leaders and economists.

Who has not heard the words, “Bond, James Bond” or “Martini, shaken, not stirred”? Most of world knows of James Bond and/or has seen one or all of his movies. Some of us are addicted; men mimic him and women dream of being a ‘Bond girl’.  From Sean Connery to Daniel Craig, each one has given us thrills and glimpses of the secret world of spies. Saving us all from certain doom dished-out by fiends such as Blofeld or Goldfinger, and just recently Silva, Bond risks all and still gets the girl(s). We line-up at the theaters to see him larger-than-life, hanging on his every word and gesture.

In this ‘honorarium of Bond’, Flynn and Blackwood have revealed all the nuances of each movie, character, automobile and Q gadget from Dr. No to Skyfall. The ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ are fascinating.

John L. Flynn, Ph.D. and Bob Blackwood, Ph.D. have done years of research (enjoying every millisecond) on James Bond, 007. They claim the title as how they have lived their lives, asking themselves, “What would Bond do in this situation?” Both have decades of literary and publishing experience and vast knowledge of the cinema.

Top Ten Reviews

What’s your favorite science fiction film?

At the start of the new millennium, fans who attended science fiction conventions persuaded Flynn and Blackwood—aka “The Film Doctors” – to conduct a survey of the Top Ten Science Films of the 20th Century.  They then embarked on a ten-year odyssey to gather thousands of fan votes. The result: a list of science fiction films that probably contains at least one of your favorites.

Each film was considered from its inception, to the pre-production period, through production and finally the audience’s reaction, reviews, critical responses and interviews with directors, producers and stars of the movies.

An educational enlightening of the motion picture industry, it shows that it truly all starts with a thought, a vision, which when fed, honed and supported becomes “where no man has gone before.”
