She isn't real. So who's that in the darkness behind the screen?
A lonely wife and a frustrated husband create virtual online friends, trying to deal with the pressures of a marriage gone flat, and a high-pressure job.
Torn between his love for his wife, and the perfection of his virtual girlfriend, he becomes unfaithful. Neither dream that behind the screen is a single real woman, masquerading both as friend and lover. She is determined to have the man for herself, and that means his wife must die.
John Faubion fell in love with suspense literature at eleven years old, after reading Frank M. Robinson’s, The Power. Since that time, the suspense and thriller genres have remained his favorite, and were a natural choice for his first full-length novel, Friend Me.
John spent 1966 as a new Christian and an American soldier in Vietnam. He was deeply moved at his first exposure to idolatry. In 1974, he and his family began nearly thirty years of missionary work that took them to Viet Nam, Guam, Taiwan and mainland China.
The death of his first wife Janet in 1989 was a life-changing experience that God used to deepen his relationship with the Lord. He now lives with his wife and youngest daughter in central Indiana.
John is the father of five children, now working as Senior Application Engineer for a large electronics and appliance retailer. He is a Mandarin Chinese speaker, and enjoys writing, teaching, and speaking to churches about the Gospel hidden in the design of the Chinese characters.
