Gregory Urbach


Custer at the Alamo was my first time travel/alternate history book. It took a decade to research. The sequel, Custer and Crockett, was released in October, 2016. Reviews have been good. My science fiction novels include the nine-book Tranquility series about a boy orphaned on the moon and raised by computers. In 2014, the series was extended with Slave of Akrona. Magistrate of the Dark Land is my first fantasy novel, the tale of a cowardly lawyer searching for two kidnapped girls in a war torn medieval land. In 2017, I will be publishing two contemporary action/adventure novels titled Diminished Capacity and Diminished Capacity 2: Second Chances.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I envision the scenes in the book like I'm watching a movie. Usually the characters and situations are played out in my imagination over and over until they speak for themselves. Then I just write down what they are saying.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
My earliest reading was Robinson Crusoe. I was very proud of myself for having read an entire book, and I was impressed how the character took a bad situation and chose to shape his environment. Many of the characters I work with today, such as Grey Waters in the Tranquility books, and Owen Vander in Magistrate of the Dark, are similar in that take control of their own destinies.
