Upon retirement he took up art; namely Watercolours and Egg Tempera and writing. The Blood of Art is John’s follow up novel to his first: The Hat Trick Murders John and his wife Barbara live in Middleton, Nova Scotia. They have four children and five grandchildren.

Review:

5 Star Review  Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

Murder and mayhem all over works of art? Well, it does happen and priceless artworks are often the target of money-hungry thieves. Mr. John A. MacEachern has written an exciting murder mystery in The Blood of Art. After a slow beginning, this turned out to be a real page turner with multiple back stories and plot lines interwoven with excellent descriptive passages. A great read!
