Jorge Gamboa was born in the Mexican border state of Sonora. From an early age he developed an hyperactive imagination fueled by both his television habits as well as the rich history and culture in which he grew up. A lover of movies, comics and cartoons, his affinity for books started when he was around thirteen, and he has never looked back. Although he favors historical fiction, westerns, and crime stories, he is a voracious reader and writer who dabbles in every genre that can serve him to discover or tell an imaginative story populated with interesting characters and situations and that can also explore different sides of our reality. He is billingual and writes and reads in both Spanish and English. Some of his literary influences in ...more

What Is It?

"God Forgives, I Don't" is a mystery action-thriller novella that I wrote and that is now available at Amazon's Kindle Store for the price of 2.99 (barring any periodical discounts and giveaways) and Amazon's Kindle Unlimited.

God Forgives, I Don't: A Super-Villain Thriller

It starts with the murder-by-righteous-beating of a middle-aged diner worker and it only gets crazier from them.

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
“This is a miserable world", says the Sergeant. "Human life, Mr. Betteredge, is a sort of target --misfortune is always firing at it, and always hitting the mark".”
Wilkie Collins
Jorge liked a quote
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
“You are not to take it, if you please, as the saying of an ignorant man, when I express my opinion that such a book as ROBINSON CRUSOE never was written, and never will be written again. I have tried that book for years—generally in combination with a pipe of tobacco—and I have found it my friend in need in all the necessities of this mortal life. When my spirits are bad—ROBINSON CRUSOE. When I want advice—ROBINSON CRUSOE. In past times when my wife plagued me; in present times when I have had a drop too much—ROBINSON CRUSOE. I have worn out six stout ROBINSON CRUSOES with hard work in my service. On my lady's last birthday she gave me a seventh. I took a drop too much on the strength of it; and ROBINSON CRUSOE put me right again. Price four shillings and sixpence, bound in blue, with a picture into the bargain.
