Gordon Akinpelu


Austin, Texas-based Gordon Akinpelu has a great love for writing, with no particular genre in mind-just whatever strikes his fancy at the time. He also loves good food, good drinks, photography, good food again (he states that he has a tapeworm he must feed, too), hours-long conversations, museums, snowboarding, and traveling both domestically and abroad. Inspiration for his writings come from all of these different areas. "There is so much to experience, see, and tell in this world-it doesn't matter if you're at the grocery store buying lettuce, or stuck in a carpet shop located in a dark back alley in Istanbul getting threatened to buy an overpriced rug (true story!); inspiration is everywhere. Sometimes truth is wackier than fiction."

Between being a worker bee, social butterfly, and succumbing to frequent cravings of wanderlust and Tex-Mex cuisine ("if it's REALLY good, it will put you in a food coma"), Gordon continues to find time to write.

Your boss gives you a good chewing-out in front of everyone. Or maybe you get a nasty email from him that sends you through the roof. You can't take it anymore; you are pull out of the parking garage and see him walking towards his vehicle. You can't help it- you aim your vehicle his direction, close your eyes, and mash on the gas. Everyone thinks of doing this-this time someone actually does.
