|Gerald G. Griffin|
A native of Flint, Michigan, Gerald Griffin wrote his first short book of fiction while in the 9th grade. Ever since then he has felt compelled to write --- his style reminiscent of Frederick Forsythe, with a dash of Damon Runyon and Tom Clancy.
He received his Ph.D. in psychology from Michigan State University and set up practice as a consulting psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia --- though unable to resist writing part-time as his busy practice permitted.
Following several years of private practice, his two sons grown and away, Gerald eased into writing full-time --- non-fiction, fiction, and ghost writing, first turning out the published non-fiction work, THE SILENT MISERY --- WHY MARRIAGES FAIL. This was followed by his three published novels, THE CORRUPTORS, THE DEATH DISCIPLE, and THE LAST COMING, this last novel written in collaboration with Robin Moore. After this came his published non-fiction ghost writing works, TRAPPED IN THE LAWYERS' DEN WITH BLOODSUCKERS and GBI AGENT.
A nature lover, he relocated from Atlanta to the lake scenery of Gainesville, Georgia. He lives in a quaint home, high on a hill, surrounded by inspiring forest foliage not far from the waters of Sidney Lake Lanier; the forest floor a protective canopy for the passing deer. In this setting, Gerald wrote the novel OF GOOD AND EVIL, followed by its sequel A TIME OF RECKONING.
Nancy Cline, a member of MENSA, said in review of Gerald's writings: "In this age, yes, there is a nobility of spirit and the courage to preserve and to protect that nobility. In the field of fiction we have men of great stature... To that list add the name of Gerald Griffin..."
Gerald is a member of International Thriller Writers (ITW). While in practice in Atlanta he was listed in Marquis Who's Who in the South and Southwest, Personalities of America and Notable Americans.
