John Awen

John Awen

John Awen started life as a party animal. A charismatic and enigmatic being, he has faced many trials in his life, often in the face of adversity and against the odds. Yet he stands here today having overcome all these in his own inimitable way.

Upon moving to Somerset a few years ago, he discovered that a side to him that he had felt years ago and been told about by many people, did actually exist. And so the inspirations started to flow freely and manifested into books and other written articles.

This side was that he could write and write well. Not just about one topic, but on a whole host of topics and different genres, which is indeed a very rare gift to possess.

Within a few short months, he had become the rarest of things – a published author. Not just one book, but three poured from his keyboard in a fine summer of creativity. This was just what John had dreamed about and had always wanted.

I have always loved writing, ever since childhood I have been fascinated with words, whether that is vocalising or writing them. The written word is extremely powerful, whatever context that may be in. As an Author and writer I can fully understand the immense power that language contains. Within my books, I like to take the reader on a journey of understanding, showing an alternative and offering a different perspective upon life and the Universe as a whole.

Please take a look at the various pages here to see the alternative life I have lived and still live now, all of which I have personal experience of, then if you would like to ask me anything, maybe book me for a workshop or talk, or purchase a signed book, then feel free to contact me.

Public Speaking.

I speak publicly on many various topics and share openly and candidly my life’s experiences and also my beliefs.

Ranging from what it means to be truly compassionate, embracing a cruelty free and Vegan lifestyle, overcoming a serious eleven year drug addiction and subsequently being imprisoned several times as a result of the addiction that gripped me for so long.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with advanced heart failure and given no time at all, this moment proved pivotal in helping me understand and appreciate just how valuable and very precious this life is, not just my life but all lives, regardless of species.

This life is an incredible gift and although mine has been full of extremes, I am incredibly lucky and grateful to still be here today. It is from all these experiences that I now offer talks on a whole host of topics and subjects with which I am passionate about.

I am now embarking on writing my life story, released March 1st 2021 which will be a no holds barred and from the heart tale of how I have faced and overcome many phases of darkness in my journey through this life.

A true story that will cover all aspects, including my addiction, being imprisoned, living with multiple heart conditions, being shot, being stabbed, raising animals to be slaughtered, which ultimately was the catalyst in me making the decision to live a cruelty free lifestyle.

Covering all areas of my life, this will be an intense book, both for myself as the writer and eventually for the readers as well.

I am aiming to have this book finished and in print by December 2020.

To book me for talks, workshops and events, please contact me.

Many thanks.
