Ten Things about Greg Strandberg

1. I have 28 books selling on Amazon right now, 8 novels, 3 novelettes, 1 box-set and 16 non-fiction books.

2. I lived in Shenzhen, China, for 5 years teaching English. Shenzhen is right across the border from Hong Kong.

3. In 2009 I took a train from Hong Kong to Beijing, up through Mongolia, and into Russia. I went across Russia on the Trans-Siberian Railroad to Moscow and then St. Petersburg.

4. That same year I went to Pamplona, Spain, and took part in the Festival of San Fermin, or the Running of the Bulls. I got knocked down, blacked-out, and woke up on a stretcher as they put me in an ambulance. If you watch this YouTube video you can see me get run over about 1 minute in.

5. After getting to the hospital I had to have a bunch of stitches in my right ear and above my right eye. My white clothes were also ruined, so they gave me a paper shirt.

6. After getting out of the Pamplona Hospital I had to take a bus back to the center of the city to get my stuff. I felt a little silly in my paper shirt and ruined pants, but there were many people looking stranger than me.

7. I’m married to a Russian woman named Evgenyia and we have a 3-year old son named Paul. Last summer we moved from China to America.

8. I work as a writer full-time. Most of the time I do content marketing, but I also do a lot of ghostwriting as well, mainly sci-fi novels. The money from my own books helps pay the rent as well.

9. I’m currently running for the Montana House of Representatives out of Missoula, Montana. If I win the June 3 primary race I’ll be unopposed in the general election, pretty much guaranteeing me a 2-year spot in the 100-member body.

10. I like blue.

MEDIA KIT  Tarot Card Killer - High ResolutionJim Sharpe is sick of life, sick of being a cop, and most of all sick of Hong Kong. He’s one of the few not on the take, yet he’s being charged with corruption. By the end of the week he’ll be kicked off the force – no matter what.

All that changes when a dead body’s found next to Victoria Harbour, a bloody Tarot card in its hand. Jim’s called onto the case, and what he discovers promises not just to upend his world, but the whole city as well.

    Greg…How interesting! How did you get involved in politics? Would your political office job impact your writing?
    Do you speak Chinese? Russian? Will you be raising your son as a “citizen of the world” with a multicultural upbringing?

  10. Thanks Catherine. I’ve always been interested in politics since I worked in the Montana capitol in 2001. I’m sure it will cut into my writing. My Chinese is rubbish, as is my Russian. My son can speak Russian pretty good, though.
