John was raised in the small crossroads village of Bogue Chitto, Mississippi, but attended school in the larger town of Brookhaven. His life experiences are both rural and urban. He is a graduate of the University of Mississippi.
Bogue Chitto Flats was John Case's first attempt at a published collection of his short stories. Saucered Coffee, Blewed and Cooled is his latest and second collection. The stories come from insights he inherited living in a rural Mississippi community where storytelling was an art, and most likely the main source of entertainment.
John is an independent insurance agent and is married to Brenda Lowry. They now live in Slidell, Louisiana and have two sons, Chris and Alan, and three grandchildren.
