About the Author Gary Reed resides in Lansing Michigan with his lovely wife Sandy. His six children and 18 grandchildren are scattered to the four winds. He is a former banker, broker, CEO, entrepreneur, educator, and with the publication of his newest book, Sanctuary, he has qualified as a wild eyed dreamer.
Gary and Sandy have recently returned from serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Their mission, as Area Welfare Specialists, was to teach correct welfare principles to the leaders of congregations up and down the east coast of the United States and Canada.
Gary is a professional student with degrees in philosophy, psychology, and education. His passion is American history and that has led him to write fictionalized accounts of his real-life ancestors who have fought in the American Revolution, the Civil War, the American Indian Wars, World War I, and (soon) World War III.
Gary is a past president of the Sherlock Holmes Society "The Greek Interpreters of East Lansing" and an active member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, having received honors as a Bard and a Thrown Weapons Champion.
Gary is the author of the four part "Journals of Jack Robertson" series and "Robertson's War 1914" that will soon appear in Smashwords Editions.
