Authors Jack Gannon & Cyndi Williams-Barnier
Jack Gannon and Cyndi Williams-Barnier are authors from Beaufort, South Carolina, living their shared high school dream of writing and publishing stories. Jack and Cyndi were best friends in High School in the 1970s, with mutual plans to graduate from college and begin writing books together. However, they lost each other right after high school graduation…only to reconnect thirty-two years later!
They reunited after Cyndi had retired with 25 years with the Beaufort County government, and Jack was nearing the end of his 24-year career at The Beaufort Gazette & The Island Packet. When they found each other in late spring 2011, one of the first questions they asked each other was, “Where’s that book you were going to write?” Since they had nothing else better to do, they picked up where they left off long ago and wrote the very book they talked about in high school! In 2012 “Murder In Twos and Threes” (Task Force #1) was self-published and to this day retains a five-star rating on Amazon.com.
They followed their first book with “Trail of The Talon” (Task Force #2) in 2013. These two books caught the eye of PDMI Publishing LLC. PDMI released new second editions of both books. Since then they have written and published six more books, including their first special Christmas book, “I Walked In Santa’s Boots”, which chronicles Jack’s 23-year career as Santa Claus for Beaufort, South Carolina, and the surrounding Lowcountry.
The author duo has plans to publish at least two more books in 2017, depending on how long the coffee lasts each morning in their covert underground office on the coast (it’s not very underground with the water table only three feet down!). They work with a staff of one Pomeranian (who is very dogged about her responsibilities to the authors) and six cats (who demand purr-fection on every written page).
They can be contacted at email@example.com or 843-597-0912, and their website is www.jandcwordsmiths.com.
