John Wish

I live in the city of Escondido in California.  I travel often through the cities of California and Arizona.  These bright and beautiful places gave me the inspiration to write a story about young people.  In a world of business and cruelty, among the good and the bad, two young people begin to create their own world of fantasy and reality. They think that they can bring people a lot of love and give them faith in themselves. They are looking for an answer to a puzzling question.  Why do the majority of  people no longer enjoy music or watching TV?  Why do most people quickly tire of the Internet and give up on it?  They get to solve this puzzle in a hard struggle with some very bad people and in the most difficult circumstances.  Many of their friends and helpers survive the battle, many do not.

I began to write my book in the following places, the places where Lola met Jack: San Diego, Sorrento, Escondido, San Marcos, Vista, Mira Costa, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Agra, San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, Irvine, Tustin, Santa Ana, Orange, Anaheim, Buena Park, La Mirada, Norwalk, Santa Fe Springs, Pico Rivera, Downey, Bell Gardens, Montebello, East Los Angeles, Huntington Park, Happy Valley, Monterey Park, Rosemead, El Monte, West Covina, Baldwin Park, Pomona, Claremont, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, San Bernardino, Colton, Redlands, Yucaipa, Calimesa, Beaumont, Banning, Cabazon, Mons, White Water, Garnet, Salvia, Palm Spring, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indio, Coachella, Blythe, Ehrenberg, Morgantown, Quartzsite, Brenda, New Hope, Tonopah, White Tank Mountain Regional Park, Avondale, Peoria, Glendale,  Phoenix.

Many thanks to Studio 54 for help in choosing images for the coming film.

    I think the author chose a very fascinating location for the story. Arizona always strikes as quite a mystical place. If something weird is going to happen – it’s gotta be Arizona!

      Arizon is full of mysticism. The Navaho and Apache were there and Jim Morrison crashed in the desert there. the Grand canyon is there. The state is too cool. The only things they need to get rid of are outdated Republican senators like McCain and Kyle. What useless men.

    I just wonder – is there anything autobiographical in the story? And if not – what exactly inspired John Wish to write such a beautiful obscure piece?

      A story like this can only be written through ones own experience I think. Life is a rollercoaster ride for some people and when I read books like this I think that the ride must have been a good one. I too am looking forward to the next installment. I like the way fantasy and reality blend together. have you ever read Jim Morrisons poetry? It has that lost in the wilderness feeling that I find in this writing.

    Your site is a bit of a mystery and I tend to indulge in mystery as a hobby so I enjoyed the visit.

    My sister went the same route as Lola for a while. I find it admirable that you can create a story like this. The world is a fucked up place with a lot of fucked up people in it. The only escape my sister had was drugs and bad sex. She ended up with atotal asshole and 3 kids (2 of whom are now kicked out of school). If she had listened to the rest of us back then she might have been a bit more stable as it is she’s a lost soul I think. I see a lot of her in Lola and just wanted to say that.

      I read in the main page forum that a few other folks had the same situation as your sister. Lola is a bit of all of us in a way. We all are capable of mistakes and we all are capable of changing. You have to have hope in the world and the people in it.

    Gavin your sisiter doesn’t sound too bad off. Lost soul is a bit strong don’t ya think? Hell she’s still alive at least. She could of ended up dead. Too many women are in dangerous relationship with destructive lifestyles. What they need is love and support from a good family. We all make bad decisions sometimes but love should be unconditional. I think thats what Jacks showing Lola.

    I like the way Lola is learning in the story. Slow and efficiently. Jack keeps her learning which I can respect in a man. Oh to have a guy like Jack who really cars about you.I am dying for the next chapter to come out. Thank you John Wish.
