About the author

G.W. Pomichter

<p> Born Garrett W. Pomichter in upstate NY in 1970,<br /> G.W. Pomichter is a graduate of Eastern Florida State&nbsp;College.<br /> The U.S. Army Infantry veteran began writing at an&nbsp;early age and published poems in anthologies in his&nbsp;early 20s. His poem, &ldquo;Coming of Age,&rdquo; was featured in&nbsp;the anthology, &ldquo;An Eternity of Beauty.&rdquo;<br /> Following a college internship with The Florida<br /> Today newspaper, G.W. Pomichter joined the writing&nbsp;staff at The Hometown News, read along Florida&rsquo;s&nbsp;Central East coast, where he penned more than 400&nbsp;byline stories.<br /> In his early 40s, G.W. Pomichter began his career&nbsp;as a full-time author. His first published work, a&nbsp;handbook on political campaigning, was a long-time&nbsp;labor of love. Having spent much of his early years&nbsp;politically active, the writer chose to author a collections&nbsp;of common tactical and strategic elements to successful&nbsp;political campaigns, and released &ldquo;Mapping the Road&nbsp;Less Traveled,&rdquo; as his inaugural work.<br /> Although his background was firmly entrenched in&nbsp;the familiar non-fiction, and technical news reporting style, G.W. Pomichter chose to flex his writing muscles to enter the fiction writing universe with another longtime project that was near to his heart. &ldquo;Lucky,&rdquo; a short homage to the classic Detective Noir novels of the 1930s and 1940s, was a project that was born out of his love of the genre and a lamenting of a lack of modest &ldquo;escapist&rdquo; stories that simply entertain audiences.</p> <p> &ldquo;Words do have power. They can change the shape&nbsp;of the world in which we live. But another power that&nbsp;words have is to transport us briefly to a place where, for&nbsp;just a few hours, we can escape our busy lives and enjoy<br /> an adventurous journey through the imagination. That is&nbsp;what we call a straight read. It&rsquo;s a place to set aside the&nbsp;complications of real life. It&rsquo;s a place where the good&nbsp;guys might still wear white hats and the bad guys, black&nbsp;hats, and where for one fleeting moment all is right, and&nbsp;you return home to pick up the daunting tasks of daily<br /> life rested and with a little more enthusiasm.&rdquo;</p>
