Welcome to the official website of author  John Donohue

Writing about
action, identity,
and meaning
I've been banging around dojo
for more than thirty years.
In the process, I've learned a few things:
how we forge connections to things
larger than ourselves,
how conduct, ordeal, and courage
lend dignity to the human condition.

ENZAN: The Far
Out Now!
The fifth installment in an imaginative martial arts
thriller series..Donohue cleverly intertwines the story
with opinions and interesting perspectives on Eastern
Zen philosophy and the rich history of martial arts, a
direction that not only expands the breadth of the
mystery, but also serves to enlighten his audience
throughout this vivid, exhilarating ride. Multilayered
and satisfying, a welcome and well-developed addition
to an accomplished martial arts series.
 Kirkus Reviews

It is these insights…that lend Enzan its true promise--
namely to render traditional martial arts practice as a
way of living relevant to the warp and woof of the
modern world. Doing so lifts John Donohue's work into
the mainstream of crime/adventure fiction.
