GORDON GUMPERTZ has a passion for writing fast-paced novels that pull his readers into the story and hold them there through the last page. While entertaining his readers with a gripping story is his first priority, he adds a strong sense of authenticity to his thrillers by researching his subjects in great depth before writing.
His three novels – Tsunami, Red Hot Sky, and Life’s Blood – reflect that mix of high adventure and a carefully researched environment. All three of his novels have received outstanding 4-and-5-star reviews and attracted a worldwide readership. His fourth novel, Glory Zone, is scheduled for publication in 2015.
In addition to writing novels, Gordon has won gold and silver awards in national and regional short story competitions. He is a member of the Palm Springs Writers Guild, a UCLA graduate, an army vet, and an instrument-rated private pilot. He keeps his website current by blogging on natural disasters and natural phenomena at www.tsunaminaturaldisaster.com.
Gordon and his wife Jenny live in Palm Desert, California, not far from the San Andreas Fault, where the Pacific Plate collides with the North American Plate, producing increasingly high levels of fault line stress which, the seismologists say, may soon produce the Big One.
