Greg Smith

Goodreads Author

in Sydney, Australia




Member Since
June 2010


Greg's gift for writing was first noticed and commented on by his various English teachers throughout his school years. He never failed to gain top marks for his compositions and even at the early age of 7 was delighting family and friends with his imaginative tales.

Alas, he was also gifted as an artist and tended to follow that path more than his writing mainly due to the encouragement of one particular aunt. Subsequently, the moment Greg graduated high school he sought a job in the commercial art field. Back then (eons ago) one was called a commercial artist, nowadays the title is graphic designer.

Greg now has a career as a graphic designer spanning 30+ years both in the publishing and printing industries—most of which was spent in Sydney

Just an update for those following my Kramer & Shadow action crime series.

The 3rd book in the series is in the final edit stages after which my editor is keen for me to have this book traditionally published in lieu of self-publish as per the previous two books.

If you have any input, comments, recommendations I'd love to hear from you.
