You will have access to the first two chapters of my new release yet to be published, "Connor's War".
Greg’s background includes 27 years as an executive in the automotive industry and twelve years as a teacher of American history, language arts, reading, drama, film criticism and Latin in the public school system in suburban Chicago. He holds a BA in economics from the University of Kansas and a Master of Arts in education from Aurora University.
Gideon’s Ghost, his first work of fiction, was drawn from actual experiences that took place during an extended visit with relatives in a small town in Missouri during the mid-1960s. It is a book written for young adult readers, which, not coincidentally, was the age group he taught during his “second career.” Of course, like any good ghost story, some of the plot elements are imagined and some really happened. It will be up to the reader to decide which are which.
Now retired from the day-to-day work force, he still writes for at least two hours every day (when not fishing, traveling, going to the movies or pursuing rail fan activities). His advice to aspiring writers is “…keep reading, keep writing, and if your dream is to one day see your name in print, never, ever give up. The more you write, the better you will get, and one day your dream will become a reality.”
Greg resides with his wife and two cats, Wallace and Gromit, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where he is also a member of the Heartland Writers Guild.
