About John W. Tucker

John Wheeler Tucker

Hi! My name is John W. Tucker. You can call me John. I live in Colorado Springs with my family. We have a dog named Charlotte, and one cat: Lotus.

This is my first published book, a fantasy written for teens or kids ages 8-17.

Dragon Riders of The Realm is an adventure as well as a reminder of my childhood years. I was called names and bullied by kids both older and younger than myself. But time and prayer and going ahead and living everyday helped me get through those tough times in elementary, junior high and high school.

I was a Children’s pastor for three different churches over a fifteen-year period here in the Colorado Springs area. During those years, our church volunteers worked with puppets, did storytelling and object lessons, gave Bible quizzes, held Vacation Bible School, did youth drama skits and plays, and worshiped the Lord. Our volunteers were part of a church bus ministry team and coffee house ministry as well.

My education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Speech and Drama, a Master of Divinity, a certificate in Facilities Management and a certificate in Paralegal.

My wife and I pastored a small church in South Dakota for nearly two years.

Today, I am a full time city bus driver. My hobbies include: astronomy, songwriting and playing my guitar, creative writing and non-fiction writing, some poetry and devotionals, and throwing the Frisbee.

I hope you enjoy reading my first book. I am writing a sequel to Book1. Book 2, entitled Caves of Conquest, should be ready by Spring of 2014.

  4. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  6. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

  7. You can blog as often as you want. I’m too busy to blog every day. Find a suitable time frame and try to be consistent. For example, twice or three times a week. See what works best for you and do a trial for a month. If that’s too often, cut back, but be consistent whatever you decide.
