I am Bernie Gourley. A Hoosier by birth, I presently live in Atlanta because I was too hibernation-prone to survive Indiana winters. (I would be sluggish as a sloth from, say, October 15th to April 20th.)
I recently left a job at Georgia Tech doing various and sundry things pertaining to a number of random and unrelated projects in order to pursue a career in writing. I’m currently working on my first novel, entitled DARK CELL, which I will have drafted in the fall of 2012 – then the work begins.
I have trained in a Japanese martial art for 20 years, but, shhh, please don’t tell anyone. I would like to maintain the element of surprise should I ever need to use it.
My educational background is in the Social Sciences, and I have Masters degrees in Economics and International Affairs.
I enjoy traveling with my wife to exotic destinations (i.e. cheap third-world locales that preferably have no wars or pandemics occurring at the moment – but, if the airfare is low enough, we’re flexible on the latter.)
