John Goldenberg is an American author living in the South of France, where he writes from a luxury boutique hotel which he owns and operates on the Riviera.

John studied Music Theory & Composition at Lamar University. He underwent undergraduate studies at George Mason University in Virginia, and graduate studies at George Washington University in Washington D.C.

He has lived and worked in over forty countries writing everything from advertising copy to functional specifications, as well as Science Fiction, Historical Fiction and General Fiction.
Arthur C. Clarke probably had the greatest influence on his work and he includes Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams as favorite authors. John has visited Clarke at his home in Sri Lanka and acquainted Vonnegut in Reykjavik.

His writing emphasizes ‘hard’ science fiction against a back-drop of realism, mystery and action, spiced with sprinklings of dark irony…ranging through art, music, language, physics, cosmology, genetic biology, even cuisine.
