Meet the Author

Author Glenn Gordon grew up with three brothers in So Cal, Seattle, and the Turks and Caicos Islands, where his parents owned a small destination inn and restaurant. They had a lot of adventures. Some involved big fish, and deep water grottos, and broken bones, and cute tourist girls. Lots of stories to tell.


He schooled at the University of Washington, studying Norwegian and comparative religion (not kidding), dropped out, got married, sold shoes, re-upped at the U-Dub, got a degree in English and a license to teach. He did that for a chunk of years in coastal Westport and farmy Wenatchee, had two daughters - Meghan and Kylene - then resettled just east of Seattle. He odd-jobbed, got divorced, found out he had an older half-sister, then began a career in textbooks with a couple of huge publishers.


For the past 15 years he's been training K-8 teachers how to be better K-8 teachers through the judicious use of his company's materials. He's good at it and he travels a lot.


He married a way cool and cute woman named Nancy. He has a dozen friends that he's known more than 30 years. He drinks spectacular NW craft beers and he likes to grill. His grandkids are named Jaxon and Ava. They're amazing people, though small.


He reads insatiably. Lee Child, Barry Eisler, Jeffrey Deaver, Robert B. Parker, John Sanford, Randy Wayne White, Greg Rucka, Robert Ferrigno, James Lee Burke. South African novelist Wilbur Smith. And lots of others.


And he writes. Has his whole life. Pages and pages, chapters and chapters. And a few complete books that don't really count.


The books that DO count are his Mack Fraser suspense thrillers, debuting with Brother's Keeper, and continuing soon with The Ferryman's Wake. Well, relatively soon. They're set in Seattle, and according to his loyal readership, they portray the city as only a long time resident could. And his characters are wicked awesome. Seriously. At least that's what people tell him.


And for that we'll give him two thumbs up.

    Short story

    It was an average tale of near death experience but i give it two stars due to the ending. The experience was explained but would have liked it to end with the authors thoughts on said experience. It felt anticlimatic.
