John Xero has been publishing flash fiction online since 2001 when he curated the online creative collective, Dark Minds. In 2006 he was co-creator of the flash fiction project Hidden Tracks. Nowadays his flash can be found here on 101 Fiction and at his blog, Xeroverse.
After brief forays into chemistry and international haulage (don't ask), John began working as a bookseller. He has worked for an independent 'cult' bookshop, run his own children's bookshop and run various sections (including science fiction and crime) for branches of Waterstones. After many years working amongst the books for Waterstones he recently left the company. He now manages a store for a different retail chain.
He realised he wanted to be a writer about the same time he followed everyone else's advice and went into chemistry. Fortunately he saw the error of his ways and began to concentrate on his real passion, his writing. He has a degree in creative writing from NUCA.
