About Gary D. McGugan
It follows four other novels of intrigue using many of the same characters I introduced in "Three Weeks Less a Day", "The Multima Scheme", "Unrelenting Peril", and "Pernicious Pursuit." Each are stand-alone stories.
Family, friends, and hundreds of other wonderful people populate my life, repeatedly creating rewarding experiences. I've had this good fortune for many years, with reading and writing often playing integral roles.
I've worked in a supermarket, sold appliances, distributed motorcycles, launched an automobile dealer network, and provided financing to help businesses grow. Each industry was very different from the other. Every company had its distinctive culture and character, but all were units of large corporations with operations around the world.
Travel has always been a great component in my roles. I've had the pleasure of visiting more than 650 towns and cities in more than 50 countries. Every trip was an education. Learning about business practices and cultures before trips was essential, and every day in a country mined valuable information to develop a deeper understanding of its people, culture, laws, and treasures.
Experts say we should write about things we know best. In my case, those subjects are business, travel, and people. As an author, my goal is to share some experiences, insight, and views as I now create fictional stories designed to entertain people around the world -- one reader at a time.
