John's new book, #DEALWITHIT shipping NOW!


“#dealwithit is a book for anyone who has lost it all. If you have been shot at, faced with sudden loss, blown up, screwed over (or in my case, screwed), this book is for you. I like to think of it as duct tape for the soul.” —Dr. John A. King

#dealwithit is the honest, raw, not-safe-for-work account of Dr. John A. King trying to piece his life back together, move forward and thrive after the spontaneous recall of over a decade of childhood sexual abuse by his parents and their friends. This recall event, or John-A-Geddon, was followed by the immediate onset of Complex Post Traumatic Stress, which led to the loss of his marriage, career and health.

This book shares John’s gritty process of rebuilding his life. On his journey, you’ll find practical tools, unlikely mentors and his trademark Aussie sarcasm. #dealwithit is the perfect book for anyone who is getting up to go again, or is in the middle of the fight and just needs to hear, “You can make it.”



I grew up in Australia; I live in the USA.

I drive a 1951 Fargo. Chances are you’ve never seen one–I hadn’t.

I have C-PTSD and write about how to get over your crap.

I also write poetry and posts about Human Trafficking.

Here are the books I have written, including the poetry one.

I started Give Them A Voice Foundation to help kids like I was.

My story is featured in Stopping Traffic movie.

I run seminars on Trafficking and PTSD.

I am a PTSD recovery coach and regularly piss people off.
