About the author
John Dickson has a vivid imagination, which he brings to life in Invention Man, 2. John aka RoseBudd, grew up in a large family of 12 siblings, all by the same to lovely parents, Clinton and Lena Dickson, Sr. Being raised is such a large family, most times they were all they needed for fun. Everyone of them emerged from that nest, fruitful and dynamic men and women. John is very proud to say he is a Dickson. His skills in writing developed from his imagination and the fear of not doing well in school, specifically math and English. His father was very serious about those subjects and John excelled in both. But, the streets call him and he had to answer. After a life, most dream of, RoseBudd retired from the Game and began his education in earnest. He graduated with honors, with a BA from Ashford University, and also earned a 4.0 in his Masters Program. Now, qualified with a Teaching and Learning With Technology, MA, he's stepping out in a different environment, where only you can say how well he's doing. The struggle continues . . .
