|Leander Jackie Grogan’s excellence in writing extends over a multiplicity of genres. His eight novels have been distributed in eleven countries and five different languages. He has won numerous local and national awards in creative writing for radio, print and the web.
Besides having authored a number of nonfiction articles in national magazines such as AdWeek and Jet, and a business bestseller, What’s Wrong With Your Small Business Team?, Grogan serves as a guest blogger for the national crime/suspense writer’s website, Murder by 4, has written and produced three local spiritual comedies, and some years ago, had a work of fiction published in Hustler Magazine.
Grogan’s popularity continues to grow exponentially as a member of the new breed of storytellers unencumbered by the dictates of old world cookie-cutter characters and a narrow spotlight, perpetually shining on the rich side of town. His characters are bold, edgy and unpredictable, and invariably in conflict with traditional values. His unique penmanship explores spiritual unknowns and agitates the deep crevices of the mind that harbor raw insights and indelible truths.
Grogan’s favorite writer, and most preponderant upon his current style, is the late Sidney Sheldon. Specific works such as The Fallen Angel by Daniel Silva, Polar Shift by Clive Cussler, Dead Zone by Stephen King, Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison, Deep Cover by Michael Tolkin and The Rainmaker by John Grisham have also had a great influence on his commitment to rich, multi-layered characterization and intricately crafted plots.
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.”
