Greg Blok


Born and raised in Canada, Greg began writing shortly after graduating from Lakehead University and teaching a class of exceptional children. The first time the writing bug caught was when he composed a complete play for his grade six class in 2 hours to the amazement of his students.

A few years later, Greg began the manuscript that became "Otto and the Hunt for Mal Goue". It was put on the back burner for 5 years as Greg pursued his career and had 3 wonderful children with his wonderful wife.

A chance meeting with a friend pushed Greg to re-read Napoleon Hill's classic "Think and Grow Rich". He realised the first time he read the book, he didn't understand the messaging and immediately picked back up the book and began to re-write. A more mature and more focused manscript appeared, like magic.

With the support and love of his wife, Greg took the leap and decided to publish his book on Smashbooks after reading a twitter article on Amanda Hocking.

The story "Otto and the Hunt for Mal Goue" is the culimination of dreams and hard work. I hope you enjoy it!
