About G R Jordan

GR Jordan is a self-published author who finally decided at forty that in order to have an enjoyable lifestyle, his creative beast within would have to be unleashed. His books mirror that conflict in life where acts of decency contend with self-promotion, goodness stares in horror at evil and kindness blind-sides us when we are at our worst. Corrupting our world with his parade of wondrous and horrific characters, he highlights everyday tensions with fresh eyes whilst taking his methodical, intelligent mainstays on a roller-coaster ride of dilemmas, all the while suffering the banter of their provocative sidekicks.

A graduate of Loughborough University where he masqueraded as a chemical engineer but ultimately played American football, GR Jordan worked at changing the shape of cereal flakes and pulled a pallet truck for a living. Watching vegetables freeze at -40C was another career highlight and he was also one of the Scottish Highlands 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 a young family with his wife, writing, figuring out how to work a loom 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!

Review by: chrisjillings on Jan. 22, 2016 :
Crescendo! is a fast paced gothic thriller with lots of humour, some truly terrific characters and a bunch of other worldly creatures thrown in to boot. With the world teetering on the brink of the apocalypse, a band of unlikely heroes make a stand to save mankind. Cue the entrance of Austerley and Kirkgordon, two names I'm sure we will see a lot more of over the years.

This mismatched pair grab your attention and imagination from the start and by the end of this adventure you are left eagerly awaiting more. Jordon has a real talent for story telling. His characters ooze personality and his settings are vivid and unnervingly realistic.

Can't wait to read "The Darkness at Dillingham", Austerley and Kirkgordon's next outing.
