John D. Mimms is a business owner, paranormal researcher and author. John served as the Technical Director for a TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) family paranormal research group in Central Arkansas. During his 4 year tenure with the organization he helped supervise over 100 investigations and wrote more than sixteen technical articles. One of John's articles titled, A Christmas Carol Debunked, was read live on the air of the Parazona Radio program by Paul Bradford of Ghost Hunters International fame. John also wrote a definitive technical/training manual which is a comprehensive guide on equipment usage, investigation protocol and scientific theory for paranormal research.

In 2009 John decided to couple his knowledge of paranormal phenomena with his lifelong love of literary fiction. Among his completed manuscripts are The Great Keep, Death Theory, and The Lemonade Girl. John's trilogy, The Tesla Gate, is a heart-wrenching, sci-fi, paranormal drama.
Book 1 of this unique, ground-breaking story is slated for release everywhere books are sold July 10, 2014. Though fictional, the story is based on scientific, paranormal theory.

Publishers Weekly gave The Tesla Gate a very favorable review in the March 3, 2014 issue stating:
"...touching sci-fi story that takes the reader on an unlikely road-trip adventure...a fast read with some entertaining ideas and a real emotional core in the relationship between father and son."

John resides with his wife and two sons in central Arkansas.
