The author, J. V. Scruggs, is driven to write by an intellectual passion. He is committed to producing artistic works that entertain, edify, and challenge his readers. His reward from this avocation comes when collaboration with his readers induces in them thoughtfulness where there was disregard, tolerance where there was prejudice, and peace where there was turmoil and angst. His fondest hope is that his readers might find their own new inspiration after contemplating what he has presented for them.
Scruggs uses his craft to produce a range of artistic works, from the miniscule, his photo-poetic pieces, to the monumental, his novels.
In his tiny snippets of poetry, sometimes paired with his own original photo imagery, Scruggs aspires to represent vast concepts and emotions with Spartan-simple phrases.
In his novels, a variety of well-developed characters journey across and between multiple story arcs to deal with disturbing conflicts in pursuit of redemption and resolution, or power and conquest. Each novel is sometimes romantic, sometimes life-affirming, and sometimes tragic and terrifying.
