Hello. We Lee and Gary Jordan, a co-writing team - FICTION BY PHOENIX - speculative fiction with a light touch- with just enough supernatural to make you wonder – Why not?

We are writers on fire and a couple of old fogies who love to write.

WAIT! That’s not right. An old fogey is defined as a very conservative, outdated person. We’ re anything but that. Our Muse has begged us to break the shackles of genre and let our imaginations run FREE, to write entertaining stories that let readers escape into unique places.

So our tales defy strict category and may contain a mix of genre, such as fantasy, romance, science fiction, action and adventure, mystery and even some occult. Most of them take place in our real world but bend reality.

Why? Because n

Even if I feel awful, don't feel like writing, or have no idea what I'm going write, I just put my fingers on the keys and write. Eventually, the Muse kicks in. One thing I do, is pull up the manuscript and start doing some editing. The creative juices kick in and I'm off and running. (less)

Leon's Lair (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: What would you do if you thought you had escaped only to find you are caught in LEON'S LAIR? This international thriller/contemporary fantasy is a nail-biting ride that is grisly but somewhat tongue-in-cheek, a brutal tale of horror and the occult that doesn't take itself too seriously. It includes romance, continental adventure, action, suspense, and dozens of vivid characters from around the world.
The Pirates of Vampire Island (Mystery & Thrillers)
0 chapters   —   updated Jul 31, 2013 09:20PM
Description: This book has been extensively rewritten and includes the anticipated sequel. It is now called LEON'S LAIR
A Whisper from Eden, A Historical Fanasy (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 13, 2013 01:58AM
Description: The year is 1827. Sixteen year-old Clayton Pinckney is an aspiring writer enamored with the Indians, much to his wealthy father's distress. He wants to change white prejudice, but he needs interesting material. A fight with his father is all that he needs to prompt him to run away from his home in South Carolina in search a fabled tribe called the Mandan. When he finds their villages, they are perched high upon a lofty cliffs lording over the turbulent waters of the Missouri River in what is now North Dakota, perched like walled fortresses and ruling kings from medieval times. He finds that the rich and powerful Mandan believe in magic powers, taught to them by one of The People from Above from ancient times past, the great god Lone Man. The Mandan were Lone Man's chosen ones. Naive Clayton becomes thrilled with this unique tribe, their elaborate culture, and their amazing appearance – many have blond hair and others have white hair. They are like nothing he has ever seen or even imagined. At first, he is completely enamored with what looks to him like a utopian society and becomes very involved with the flamboyant Chief Rained for Many Days and falls hopelessly in love with the chief’s magical, young daughter, the exotic and, at times, very frightening, Crying Wind. However, as he learns more about the Mandan, he finds he has a big problem – much of what he has seen is too unbelievable to write about. Who would believe him? This is a 19th century saga of spiritual awakening and the fulfillment of an ancient promise, a unique take on real events, with magic, the supernatural, and . . . the promised return of the great god Lone Man.

J.D. Salinger
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Robertson Davies
“Authors like cats because they are such quiet, lovable, wise creatures, and cats like authors for the same reasons.”
Robertson Davies

James Morcan
“Nine had heard whisperings that the secretive Bilderberg Group was effectively the World Government, undermining democracy by influencing everything from nations' political leaders to the venue for the next war. He recalled persistent rumors and confirmed media reports that the Bilderberg Group had such luminaries as Barack Obama, Prince Charles, Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch, Tony Blair, Bill and Hillary Clinton, George Bush Sr. and George W. Bush. Other Bilderberg members sprung forth from Nine’s memory bank. They included the founders and CEOs of various multinational corporations like Facebook, BP, Google, Shell and Amazon, as well as almost every major financial institution on the planet.”
James Morcan, The Ninth Orphan
