Gordon Sombrowski began writing in secret at the age of eight when he wrote a 6 page story about Catherine the Great. Forty one years later his husband Kevin pushed him out of the writer’s closet and into submitting a story; it was published. He has written numerous short stories, some of which are published as What Echo Heard. Gordon is working on his second novel, the first sits on his book shelf daring him to send it to a publisher. When not writing he helps guide his family’s business and volunteers in the community with emphasis on the arts in Calgary, Alberta and Fernie, British Columbia.
