Edward Gordon


Edward Gordon is a retired civil engineer who has spent many years working and living in the Far east, the Indian sub-continent, and Africa.
He has written two novels, so far, one of which was first published in 2006, the second 2008 . . . Neither not at all a commercial success it must be said. A third languishes in typescript awaiting inspiration. But in spite of the lack of success he remains committed to writing stories.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
When I'm struck by an idea for a story of some length . . . long or short, I begin to write. I find that it is only in writing my story that it grows. Sometimes it fizzles and dies out but the tale often comes back.
With this method . . . for me personally . . . my story grows. How good the finished product well that's another thing.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I've been impressed by stories from so early in my life I can't recall, but the first written tale to stay with me was, perhaps, Swiss Family Robinson.
