Gordon Swartzfager

Biography

Gordon Swartzfager is 85 years old; lives in Denver Colorado; and has been happily married to the same woman for 61 years. When he graduated from college in 1951 he wanted to write books. But he didn't want to starve in some attic while he was trying to become a writer. So he started with a newspaper -- then went with increasingly larger companies and agencies doing advertising and public relations work. (One gets a great deal of experience in fiction writing in those situations.) As a hobby he wrote a couple of stories. He never tried to get any published. They just sat around in his computer until he heard about Smashwords. What you see here is some of the old stuff -- new stuff is on the way.
