Catcher's Keeper Book Spotlight

Catcher's Keeper by JD SperoPublication date: March 1, 2014 by Createspace


What if Holden Caulfield was around when John Lennon was shot? In 1980 John Lennon was killed by Mark David Chapman, who believed he was Holden Caulfield, narrator of the classic “The Catcher in the Rye.” After the shooting, Chapman remained on the scene calmly reading the book, which he later offered to police as his statement. “Catcher’s Keeper” asks the question, “What if Holden could have met Chapman, learned of his plan, and tried to prevent the assassination?”

About the author:

Johannah Davies Spero was born near a pristine lake in the Adirondacks and has lived in various cities such as St. Petersburg (Russia), Indianapolis, Dallas, and Boston. She has pursued her love of narrative through degrees in English, Russian, and teaching—and has worked as an actress, a yoga instructor, a web design entrepreneur, freelance writer, and a high school English teacher. She lives in the Northeast with her husband and three young sons.

A more personal note about me and my writing:
When asked how long I’ve been writing, I usually give my standard answer: “Just over a decade.” But truth be told, I have been writing ever since I can remember, filling childhood journals with poems and existential, prepubescent musings. My mother, a high school English teacher, would try to encourage me to read, read, read…but I always felt drawn to put pen to paper and create my own words. If I had known then that reading would make me a better writer, I would’ve taken her advice. But alas, what tween wants to admit Mom is right?

I’ve written five novels to date, and I’m excited to launch Catcher’s Keeper and to share my story with the world!
