J.C. Myers
Address: 283 West County Road - Calais, VT

I'm from a educated family that moved to rural Vermont in the 1930s. I was born and raised a literate Vermonter. I learned to speak like a native as a survival adaptation on the school bus. Living that rural life, Vermontics came in handy and I absorbed the humor and wisdom of my fellow workers. This was my material in writing Junkyard at No Town, a book that started as a short story when I was still in college in the early 80s and on which I did my final edits just this spring of 2019. I feel blessed to have been from two worlds, to have read so much great literature, to have inherited the love of art and music, and to have learned how to sharpen a chainsaw and drop an Ash without having it split on me before it hits the ground.

Author Book Cover 1
"Jackson Ellis's LORDS OF ST. THOMAS is the dramatic story of the beleaguered Lord family, forced off their land by the creation of Lake Mead. At the heart of the book are the patriarch Henry Lord, who refuses to leave his doomed home, and town, and his young grandson and namesake. LORDS OF ST. THOMAS is both a terrific coming-of-age story and an exact and haunting evocation of a bygone time and place. What's more, it's a great read. I loved every page." ―Howard Frank Mosher, author of WHERE THE RIVERS FLOW NORTH
