John D. Rutter is a short story writer who also teaches, edits and writes about short stories. He completed an MA in Creative Writing at Lancaster University and a PhD on the short story at Edge Hill University where he has taught part time for several years.

Approval, his first full-length collection, was published by Saraband Books with the support of the Northbound Book Award 2020.

The Northbound Book Award will change my life. Having started writing relatively late in life, I can finally say I am an author and commit my time to writing. I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with Saraband.
