About the Author

N. John Shore, Jr. is a long-time magazine and newspaper writer who has edited and ghostwritten several fiction and non-fiction bestselling books. In 2014, in order to start writing Everywhere She's Not, he put on hiatus his personal blog, which since 2007 had been among the most read blogs in the country (receiving upwards of 300,000 views a month). From April 2016 to November 2017 he penned, for the Asheville Citizen-Times, Ashes to Asheville, the first real-time weekly serial novel ever published on the website of a major daily newspaper. With the conclusion of Ashes he started writing for the Citizen-Times his popular advice column, Ask John. He has published fifteen short stories in little literary magazines across the country. Everywhere She's Not is his first (non-serialized) novel.


"It's not easy to tell a story that is filled with hilarious humor, the pangs of love lost, excruciatingly sad family life and deep, deep inner circumspection that ultimately uplifts your soul, but John has done just that. I highly recommend you read this book; you will thank me later." -- Jon Mayes, Advance Reading Copy

"Deeply engrossing . . . a highly satisfying reading experience. . . Shore's prose is nearly transparent--which is extremely high praise. The writing is so stylistically on target that the language itself falls away, allowing the reader to enter into the subtleties of the story completely. . . . Shore's protagonist is authentically funny and rawly sympathetic. . . . This novel stands apart for its originality. It is a testament to the notion that the strongest works are often those with simple storylines, exceptionally told." -- The BookLife Prize (2019)

"With masterful prose, pitch-perfect dialogue, and laugh-out-loud humor, Shore has crafted an engrossing story of human fallibility, family wounds, and the redemptive power of self-discovery. Both heart-rending and hilarious, Everywhere She's Not will resonate deeply with anyone who's ever struggled to understand their past or find their truest self." -- Erica Witsell, author of the novel, Give.

"Shore's territory is the daily, personal challenges of how we live. He traces the very real, very emotional lives of ordinary people who are just trying to keep up--with, often, their own hearts." -- Bruce Steele, The Asheville Citizen-Times

A powerfully compelling introspective look at life . . . The wrecked persona of David is beautifully achieved through narrative intimacy, stellar descriptive work and compelling dialogue . . . Everywhere She's Not is a harrowing and fascinating novel -- K.C. Finn, for Readers' Favorite

"I just couldn't put it down. A couple of times I really had to stop and walk away from it--it was that honest, raw and painful. I wish I could give a copy to every struggling person I know, grab them by the lapels, and say, Read! Read!" -- Mary L. Harper, Current Literature Book Club.
