John considers himself to be “on sabbatical” from the law as he pursues his interest in history and writing, splitting his time between Seattle and Sun Valley, Idaho. He has participated in sports his whole life and is a life-long skier and a long-time sailor and rower.
John is a proud product of the West where his family members were early settlers and pioneers, drawn initially by hard rock mining. He has done in-depth research into his family’s history for books he is writing, and has written extensively about early skiing history. A number of John’s history essays are available on HistoryLink.org, the on-line encyclopedia of Washington history, Central Washington’s website site for local authors, The Community Library in Ketchum, Idaho, and other locations.
John and his family spend summers exploring the mountains around Sun Valley. His wife, Jane E. Lundin, is a wildflower expert who has published a book about wildflowers in Idaho with A. Scott Earle, Idaho Mountain Wildflowers; a laminated Idaho wildflower field guide with A. Scott Earle, 265 Images of Northern Rocky Mountain Wildflowers; and a laminated Washington wildflower field guide, Mountain Wildflowers of Washington : 265 Images. They can be purchased from many bookstores or at Amazon.
