A Quick Interview...
Who is Joshua M. Gordon?
I am a husband, father, and writer.
Why do you write? What do you write about?
The goal is to help bring clarity to topics that should be simple, yet aren't. I have a passion for writing (and reading) both fiction and non-fiction. It's a beautiful thing when a great story can be a better teacher than a non-fiction guide book.
I write stories to convey a message. Not Quite Broken and The Lemmings (available as a free download to readers club members) are crime dramas, only because the genre created the right platform for the messages I was looking to convey. I don't intend on writing only crime dramas though. Future books will venture into other categories. Which categories I can't tell you exactly, but my wife could tell you it won't likely be romance or comedy. She tells me to stick with what I know...
The non-fiction I write is truly more of a passion project. Things I believe need to be said. Things which should be taught. They will not be for everybody. Not everybody wants the truth. I write on topics where I see a need. How To Own Your Thoughts came out of seeing how often people struggle with their own desires. The How To Of Happy came out of daily life. I've discovered the secrets to living a joyous life. I want other people to do the same, so I've shared my discoveries. It turned out that what I learned the hard way has been well known by psychologists for a long time. In reality, I simply gathered a bunch of information, and put it together into what is hopefully a useful format.
Is there anything your readers should know about you?
I try to live life with the motto to love constantly. I hope my readers know that everything I write is designed to make the world a better place. I write to be loving. Sometimes, that will be encouraging. Sometimes, it may be harsh. It will always come from a position of love though.
Is there anything you want to say to your readers?
I want people to know that life has meaning. I want our conversations to have meaning too.
