More About the Author
His thriller novels Jezebel, Dead Reckoning, and Brainstorm are all in both paper and eBook. His latest men's action/adventure thriller series, "The E Z Knight Reports," include the novels Knight's Big Easy, Knight's Late Train and Knight's Ransom. Four or five more in the series are scheduled for release yet this year. These novels are about half the size of his big thrillers and are fast, fun reads.
Gordon's also published two short story eBooks: a humorous piece called "Toothpick for Two" and a nostalgic romance called "Jack Baron". Please check them out.
As a consultant and editor on numerous book and eBook projects over the past twenty years, Gordon has published three books for writers. Novel Writing Made Simple is a great primer for beginners and an excellent refresher for the experienced wordsmith. EBook Writing Made Simple focuses on the actual writing of eBook novels and how they can be crafted more effectively for the eBook novel reader rather than as a work written for the traditional publishing industry. How to Write a Novel--Storytelling, the Writer and the EBook Novel is his latest work, published especailly with the beginning eBook novelist in mind.
Gordon is a founder and past president of the Kansas Writers Association, a seventeen-year-old organization of some very special people, and a current member of the Kansas Authors Club as well as a past president of their District Two. Last year, he started a group to help support independent authors called the Indie Writers Alliance--another group of great people.

The fact that this scenario actually could happen made it all the more frightening to me. I couldn't help but think while reading it what a good movie it would make. All the ingredients are at hand: interesting characters, with non-stop fright and suspense that plays well against the Heartland locale. The prologue alone was enough to make my hair stand on end.
Tony Parker is the very-married hero with a devoted wife, two small children, and a St. Bernard to round out his life. Financial problems forced him to drop out of college one year short of his veterinary degree and he sees no way of completing that schooling any time soon. Despite that, Tony has made a good living for himself as Animal Control Officer of Sedgwick County Kansas and the City of Wichita. He's an organized and efficient boss with a deep love and respect for animals and is well respected by his supervisors and peers. The worst danger he has to face is an occastional bite from an animal that might be rabid. It would be an idyllic set up if not for a couple unanticipated complications.
Complication one. Tony's a good looking guy, a fact not overlooked by his young assistant Sarah Hill. She's made seducing the devoted family man her number one priority. Tony loves his wife and is not the play-around type, but a little of the zip HAS gone out of his marriage and Sarah IS an eyeful and well, Tony is only human. Sarah's selfish attempts at seduction turn out to be not so entertaining when all is said and done.
Complication two. People in Wichita and the surrounding area are dying horrible deaths unexpectedly, ripped to pieces by family pets.Read more ›
During what is believed to be the first attack - on a nice elderly gentleman who lived, and then obviously died, for his two dogs - a hellish hound is unleashed on the good citizens of Wichita. One of the victim's pets, a huge black Great Dane named Jezebel, is on the loose. Her size seems to be matched only by her fury.
Tony, a happily married man whose life has settled into a comfortable place, is being pursued by his partner, Sarah Hill. She is a hot-to-trot vixen who has her sights set squarely on him. He doesn't really want to cheat on his wife - but Sarah has no concerns about his marriage or his morals. Her only concern is for her own libido - and protecting their lives against a world of canines gone crazy. Her relentless quest for Tony is sparking reactions in him he didn't expect and doesn't know if he can control. He isn't sure if "comfortable" is what he wants anymore.
Lt. Jack Simpson, a member of the Wichita Police Department, joins his long-time friend in a frantic chase to find answers to questions they're not sure they understand - before anyone else dies. One other small problem: Tony's been bitten by a skunk. Could the animal be rabid? Is Tony chasing death on four legs - with his own demise following close behind?
Gordon Kessler has crafted a compelling and intense novel that grabs you by the throat and won't let go. His characters are well drawn and complex. You'll find yourself yelling out loud at them in either fear or frustration. The plot is full of twists and turns that never let you relax.
JEZEBEL is definitely a book you will remember. You may also find yourself looking a little nervously at your beloved pet. Is that a smile - or could it be a snarl...?
Tony Parker, Animal Control Director, husband and father of two, and dog owner, is a man who has it all, despite the financial rut him and his wife are in. He is forced to leave Vet school and take on a job as the director of Animal Control. The he starts witnessing something VERY unusual.....deaths people in his community. The cause? Jezebel. A wild, furious Great Dane intent on killing everyone. But, what's the cause of her fury?
That's something that Tony's intent on finding out, but he has a bit of a hard time doing it with this beautiful, young partner Sarah Hill, who has her sights set on HIM. Tony's married and comfortable, yet he can't get the beautiful Sarah's intentions out of his mind. He doesn't WANT to cheat on his wife.....yet Sarah wants him. He is finding it hard to resist her, and it's causing a rift between him and his loving wife. But, will it be enough to satisfy him? Or will the marriage he's so comfortable in be destroyed by a distraction called Sarah?
While Tony is set out to find out the reason for the fury in Jezebel, deaths keep piling up. Not only that, but now dogs who belong to loving families have become furious. Is it because of Jezebel? Or is something deeper and darker than that?
I absolutely LOVED the way this book panned out. From start to finish, you NEVER know what the next twist will be, and you are left on the edge of your seat the entire time. We have two very adorable and loving Cocker Spaniels, and I can't imagine them EVER turning furious!Read more ›
