Greg Jackson is a freelance writer, author, artist and graphic designer. He is the author of eight novels and counting. Ever since he was a kid Greg's wanted to be a writer. His imagination is always on overdrive, courtesy of growing up as a child in the Star Wars generation. There rarely is an idea that can't be turned into a plot, no matter how odd. He decided to work from home as a graphic designer to raise his son as a single parent. He soon began his writing in 2007. Operation Mistletoe was his first novel and soon every shipment in Waldenbooks sold out over the Christmas season in the upper northwest region.
Greg's books span several genres of fiction, from science fiction and flash fiction short stories to bitingly sarcastic satires. He publishes several online stories to Authors Den and owns lankymania.com, where he accepts and lists books from other independent authors to promote independent writing by sharing exposure to fans.
Greg's imagination is still on hyperdrive and his love for movies is still going strong. His books have been said to read like movies and it only reaffirms what he loves to do: entertain and inspire through imagination. And no matter what, he's inspired his son to start writing and telling stories, which is possibly the best thing that can ever happen.

I read Greg Jackson's first book and it was hysterical so I bought Fractured: Athena Rising, not knowing what to expect. I love sci-fi and his twist didn't disappoint, with the hi-tech involved. The main character, Dylan King was an instantly complicated and likable girl...part precocious teen and part 18 year-old girl thrown into the survival of adulthood after a brutal life up until now. The characters in the book all had unique personalities, even in the Crow-like dark worlds they lived in. The author's twisted humor was sprinkled in here and there but this book was a little more edgy and grittier in tone than Mistletoe was. But it's the first book of the series, so I can't wait for the second part to see how Dylan grows and adapts to the fate she's been given, and I need to see what's real! There are political overtones that set the story that eerily mirror what's going on today, but I thought of it as a story of a lost girl trying to find herself in a horrible world as she's being hunted down for the technology in her she didn't have a choice to accept. It's dark and violent but it's definitely a very cool book.
