About the Author:

Life is like a trail of breadcrumbs. If you ever wonder how you got to where you are just look over your shoulder and see the trail of breadcrumbs. John’s trail of breadcrumbs began in the small rural town of Hartville, OH in 1951. He is the oldest of five children to Lorin and Janice Pontius. His family has lived in the community since 1800. Over two hundred years later, his family still lives there. No matter where he has lived since, the breadcrumbs still leads him back home.

After graduating from high school in 1969, John spent the summer in Sao Paulo, Brazil. What he experienced with his missionary aunt and uncle forever changed his life. He graduated from the University of Akron, OH in 1976 with a Secondary Education degree. Following a year of graduate work, he was commissioned in the Air Force in 1977.

More breadcrumbs trailed behind with his first assignment as a missile launch officer for the 448th Strategic Missile Squadron, Grand Forks AFB, ND. There he met the love of his life, Susan MacKay, from Winnipeg, Canada. They got married in 1980. Later assignments included Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, and McChord AFB, WA before leaving the Air Force in 1989. Over the years, he has served as: President of Elmendorf AFB Community School, Christian schoolteacher, school administrator, basketball coach, and educational consultant. Terran Command: Quest for Freedom is his first book.

John and his wife, Susan, retired in 2016 and share a ranch with their oldest son and wife near Mena, AR. They raise Scottish-Highland cattle, Royal-White sheep and Kiko goats. With four children and sixteen grandchildren, he became an experienced bedtime story weaver. In his spare time, he enjoys: writing, gardening, reading, and working with his two Australian Shepherds, Ginger Snap and Pepper.
