More About the Author

Charles G. Irion

is a publisher, award-winning author, successful entrepreneur, adventurer, and philanthropist. For several decades, he has served as the sole proprietor and broker for U.S. Park Investments, a leading operator of Manufactured Home and RV communities in the United States. Before that, he was a pharmaceutical representative for Johnson and Johnson, McNeil Laboratories after completing his Masters of Business Administration in International Marketing and Finance from the Thunderbird School of Global Management.

One of his life-long passions is for the written word. Determined to make his dreams a reality, he wrote and published thirteen books comprised of the Summit Murder Mystery series, and the Hell series. Inspired by his 1987 attempt to climb Mt. Everest, and a 2011 summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, each book in the Summit Murder Mystery series is set atop the highest point of the world's seven continents. Deaths from falls, avalanches, illness, heart attacks, and high altitude sickness are a matter of course, and when you add in murder, action and adventure, the combination makes for unforgettable reads. The climb begins with the first book in the series, Murder on Everest, and is followed with Murder on Elbrus, Murder on Mt. McKinley, Murder on Puncak Jaya, Murder on Aconcagua, Murder on Vinson Massif, and ends with Murder on Kilimanjaro. There is also a novella, Abandoned on Everest. The Hell Series includes, Remodeling Hell, Autograph Hell, Car Dealer Hell and Divorce Hell. He also published a fun novelty cookbook for outdoorsmen called, Roadkill Cooking for Campers - The Best Dang Wild Game Cookbook in the World.

Many years ago, his first medical mission was to Benjamin Hill Senora, Mexico with the Phil Am Lion's Club. Even then, he knew that medical missions were experiences he wanted to continue. Charles is currently a Director of the Phil-Am Lions Club in Phoenix, Arizona and will be participating in a medical mission in a village near Subic Bay, Philippines in February 2015, to provide approximately 300 free cataract surgeries to needy patients. In June 2011, he went on a trip to Mt. Kilimanjaro with the K2 Adventures Foundation. They took Project C.U.R.E. supplies and used them to examine more than 200 patients. The following year, he visited Lima, Peru to help translate for the doctors and nurses at a C.U.R.E. clinic for a day. In addition to philanthropy trips and translating services, Charles participated in the training session at the Denver headquarters to become a certified Needs Assessment Representative. He went to Burkina Faso for the field training requirement and his first assessment alone was in Cuenca, Ecuador to conduct assessments on a hospital and a mobile surgical unit. His next assessment trip to Nicaragua included assessments of Project C.U.R.E. Clinics, where he translated for the doctors and passed out medicines and vitamins to children and adults. Since then, he has also conducted needs assessments to Ouanaminthe, Haiti, El Banco, Colombia, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Boma. He loves being involved in such an amazing organization and helping those that really need it.

Irion's passion for adventure has encompassed the full gamut. He has traveled to over 60 countries throughout the world. SCUBA diving is a favorite hobby of Irion's and he has seen the underwater world from California to Mexico, Costa Rica, the South China sea, Belize, Colombia, Rio De Janeiro, Bali, and in Subic Bay of the Philippines. Irion has also skydived throughout Arizona, loved the thrill of white water rafting on Pacuare River in Costa Rica, and in 1988, Irion completed a week long course in High Wall Mountain Repelling conducted in the Bavarian Alps.

I have personally attended Charles G. Irion and Ronald J. Watkins book signings. Two fascinating writers with international experience to details of events. It was no surprise we would end up in a Ken Rotcop's screenwriting class. Reading their series helped me get the final pages completed to my memoir A Woman of Interest I highly recommend these authors books not only for entertainment but for inspiration in one's own writing.

Format: Paperback
Once again I was not disappointed, this climb transports you to Argentine and Chile. The scenery as described is beautiful and you will also learn a little history of the Inca's. This time Scott Devlin is joined by Lester Fowl, Quentin and Kira Stern, Raul the leader of the expedition, Carlos the owner of the hostel, Evo and of course Natasha Sodoc in the background conducting her own business. The story is set around three golden Inca idols that all seem to be looking for and not completely believing that they exist.

I could not put this book down and I am totally addicted to the Summit Murder Mystery series.Everyone that is a mystery buff must read this series.
