About Gordon

Born in Watford, Hertfordshire, in 1957, Gordon’s family moved to Broughty Ferry in the early 1960s. Gordon attended Grove Academy, leaving in 1974 to work for Bank of Scotland. After a long but undistinguished career, he retired on medical grounds in 2008 without having received any huge bankers’ bonuses.

Registered blind, Gordon had more time on his hands after retiring so, with the aid of special computer software, he returned to his hobby of writing and had his debut novel, “In the Shadow of the Wall” published in 2010. Gordon’s books are now being read by a world-wide audience. As well as his historical adventure stories, he has ventured into crime fiction with some spoof murder mysteries in the “Constantine Investigates” series. He is also kept busy with speaking engagements, visiting libraries, schools and community groups to talk about his books.

In addition to his novels, Gordon devotes some of his time to raising funds for the RNIB. As well as visiting schools and social clubs to talk about his sight loss, he has self-published a charity booklet titled, “A Walk in the Dark”, a humorous account of his experiences since losing his eyesight. The booklet is available in e-book format from Amazon, and all author royalties will be passed on to RNIB.

Now completely blind, Gordon continues to write stories and, in his spare time, attempts to play the guitar and keyboard with varying degrees of success.


Gordon is married to Alaine. They have three children and one grandchild. The family lives in Livingston, West Lothian.
