G.P. Schultz was born into a coal mining family. He grew up in wild, wonderful West Virginia, where he loved to hunt, fish and play sports. He then served with the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii where he met his wife, who was attending the University of Hawaii. They have two daughters and currently reside in Kansas City.
His writing career began in mid-life, with the publication of his first novel, Gully Town. His idea for the novel came from years of working in the River Quay area of Kansas City, and he wanted to revive the city's rich history in a novel. He writes fiction, but combines it with years of research to make his novels accurate in time and place. His writing philosophy is that, you can't have a compelling story without a compelling romance.
He currently divides his time between his marketing business and writing, but also enjoys golf, reading, gardening and following college sports.
