Hank Shore has a background in photography, archives and library science. He worked for a long time at Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem as a photo-technician and then took a nine-year hiatus in Minnesota when he married his Lutheran seminary professor/pastor wife. Upon returning to North Carolina (and finally thawing out), he started writing in the picturesque town of Brevard in Transylvania County, as well as learning how to repair lenses at Alpine Optics. And no, he doesn’t write horror, though it would be very appropriate for the locale.
His novel 'Gray Galaxy' is available on the Kindle site and he believes that the thing is very reasonably priced.
