ABOUT THE AUTHORGary Shelly lives in Southern California and now spends his time creating stories instead of writing computer textbooks. His first novel, DYING TO GIVE, explores the quandary of a family struck by an unthinkable tragedy.
He has extensive experience as a computer programmer and systems analyst, a textbook author, a Series 7-licensed stock broker, a lawyer and member of the California bar, a pilot of his Bonanza single-engine aircraft, a 14-handicap golfer, a husband, a father, and a grandfather.
When he's not writing, Gary spends time with family and pays close attention to the world of sports. Any sport. A season-ticket holder for the Los Angeles Angels, he has participated (with questionable skill) in various sports including baseball, football, basketball, skiing, darts, bowling, foosball, ice hockey, curling, horse racing (betting, that is), body surfing, and, of course, golf. The most fascinating golf course he ever played was the Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. He even sponsored an A-Fuel Dragster once-upon-a-time.
To support organ donation, from his first novel's royalties he will gift $2 to Donate Life America for each eBook sold, and $1 for each print book sold. If you have not already done so, a visit to donatelife.net might be enlightening for you.
