G. M. (Jerry) Ford grew up in New York and New Jersey before moving to Oregon. He taught for many years at Rogue Community College in Grants Pass and eventually decided to write a mystery. That led to 13 critically acclaimed thrillers. Here’s the story of his New Jersey origins, his road to Oregon and the making of his debut novel Who In Hell Is Wanda Fuca?, the first in a series of six books based on the character Leo Waterman, a detective working in Seattle, Washington.
