Hello, my name is Justin Kennon. I am a professional writer with two books currently published, and dozens more trapped in my head.

Here is my Patreon, if you want to help support me and my writings.

Posts will be every Friday or Saturday.

I'm currently looking for Beta Readers for my stories.

I love getting comments and reviews, so please be sure to leave one when you're done reading.
I also enjoy Role Play. D&D, fandom, and original stuff.

Comments keep me going.

Small Town: a slice-of-life analogy.
Summary: In this novel about family, community, and identity, writer Justin P. Kennon celebrates the ordinary people of an ordinary town.

Characters like Jack the barber; his assistant, Oliver; and a customer, harried single mother Barbara, seem like nothing special to Wes, Kennon’s first protagonist. Wes is desperate to get out of the little town and decides that a haircut can help him start anew. By chance, he picks Jack’s barbershop for the final step in his escape. As he interacts with Jack, Oliver, Barbara, and her son, Wes realizes that they aren’t so boring after all.

Wes isn’t the only character we follow throughout Small Town’s interconnected chapters. Jack, Oliver, and Barbara also get their time in the sun, along with six other unforgettable individuals.

Wes may have secret hopes, but he is not the only one. Kennon uses these ten distinct individuals to examine the joys and struggles of ordinary existence and extraordinary circumstances. Some townspeople’s lives will be touched in amazing ways. Others will face decisions that will have consequences for their entire families. Each has a unique story to be told. Join this small town, and discover them all.

Captain G.E.M. and the Green Coats: The Stowaway: a sci-fi/swashbuckler
Summary: Captain G.E.M. and his Green Coats pirates had just successfully raided a grand gallon, taking everything of value from it. When they realizes they stole something that was not suppose to be there in the first place, it causes them run for their lives and hope to find someone that can take this thing off of their hands.

The Grip reviews
This is allows based off of the fall I had with the friend I looked up too. I was so full of anger that I felt I couldn't let go of them, and that they had an unknown power over me as well. I'm doing better now, but there is still a small part of me that can't let go of the pain. Maybe one day I well be able to, but not at this time.

The Noose
With September being Nation Suicide Awareness Month, I wanted to share this poem. Throughout the year, there have been multiple times I've questioned continuing on. I've been betrayed by those I thought were friends, watched as the world sets itself on Hellfire, and it just feels the world would be better off with all of humanity was wiped out. I need to vent, and this was it.
