Gary is working on “Crescendo!”, a fantasy novel about two paranormal investigators (Messers Austerley and Kirkgordon) and “Hook, Line and Sinker”, a story about mermaids appearing off a remote Scottish island, both to be published under G R Jordan. Gary first published “Four Life Emotions” a poetry book followed by a Christian work of short allegorical stories called “A Darker Shade of Light.”
Previously he spent his time at Loughborough University masquerading as a chemical engineer but ultimately playing American football, Gary worked at changing the shape of cereal flakes and pulled a pallet truck for a living. Watching vegetables freeze at -40’C was another career highlight but currently he is one of the few remaining “blind” air traffic controllers. Having flirted with most places in the UK, he is now based in the Isle of Lewis in Scotland where his free time is spent between raising three young children with his wife, writing and caring for a small flock of chickens. Luckily his writing is influenced by his varied work and life experience as the chickens have not been the poetical inspiration he had hoped for!
