Johnny B Truant writes complex stories. Stories with plots that tend to branch out and get more complex by the chapter and book throughout a series. If you’ve read Invasion, The Beam, Fat Vampire, or The Inevitable, you know just how complex his stories can get. He creates not only fascinating characters living in richly textured worlds but multifaceted societies based on advanced science and technologies with fighting factions of political parties and communities crumbling under socioeconomic pressures.

In this episode, Johnny talks about his journey from panster to plotter to something in between, and finally moving back toward being a pantser again, once he realized that really is what comes most naturally to him.

Listen in to learn more about how he has been so incredibly prolific while writing such long and complex books.
