Mord McGhee, an indie author from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is the author of Ghosts of San Francisco. McGhee has been writing since back in high school being kept after class by the teacher served as a learning experience more than an actual punishment. The English teacher, whom he describes as “infamously mean”, told McGhee that he had talent for writing and might want to think about it on a more serious level.
McGhee has been drawn to science fiction due to his degree and interest in it over the years, “In my head it makes sense to expand on what the future holds for people like me and you.”
Prior to becoming an author McGhee was a singer/songwriter/guitar, and even though he has since retired from that he stills holds onto the values learned from those experiences, “I have a fondness for art in all manifestations and especially that of indie creators,” he also expresses that “Art is Art” no matter the form it takes.
Being involved in the Humane Society is something that happened at first when McGhee helped his daughter with a project for her high school graduation. He has since kept up with his volunteering and for the week of Easter donated the proceeds of his book to Wpahumane.org. He also said that “Spring is very difficult on animal shelters.”
He is working on new novels and his current project is “a historical science fiction rethink.” Look out for his cover reveal to this towards the end of the year.
