John W. Nassivera

John W. Nassivera is an author, song writer, and illustrator.

My music and books feature a variety of artists and genres to enhance the setting, character development, provoke an emotion, and allow you the audience to become amerce in the story.

Growing up in small town America, my mother used our front porch as an outdoor living room for family and friends to pass the time. A place where advice was garnered, jokes were told, melodies were sung, and stories were spun. It was a place where my mother told tales that taught us the cultural ideals of family, friends, and community. I’ve carried her lessons into my approach to writing. My songs and stories address subtle messages of friendships, community acceptance, respect, collaboration, forgiveness, and acceptance.

The power of a story is magnified when it is shared.
