About the Author
Gordon Bunker has been described as a "mild-mannered wild man," and "insatiable adventurer." His scribblings have appeared in Drive, Roundel, Pilgrimage, BMW Motorcycle and Local Flavor magazines, et al. His training as a writer is classical: go out and do life to the fullest extent possible. He has picked apples, built boats, cared for a public fine art collection, built and designed houses. And so on, this is the abridged version. Gordon once considered signing on with a commercial lobster fishing crew (the money was good). But he gave in to the fact he gets seasick just looking at an ocean going vessel and thus proved he is capable of making a decision based on a practical consideration. Presently his day job is writer. So much for practical considerations. He has two books published and a third in the oven. For fun, he regularly plays fast with the laws of physics on his motorcycle, has ridden coast to coast and border to border, and loves to hike in the mountains. Born and raised in the rock-ribbed hills of New Hampshire, he now makes his home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
