Allen Gregory is a mystery/thriller author who has created a different kind of hero, an imperfect Everyman – Flint Stryker. “Lessons Learned” is the exciting first installment in the Flint Stryker Linchpin Thriller Series. Filled with suspense, unique characters, and interspersed with wry humor, “Lessons Learned” is about a hard-partying slacker who faces a career choice that ultimately proves to be a real life or death decision.
As a former NASA rocket scientist, private detective, government security operative, and Chris Pine look-alike, Allen Gregory comes by the adventurous lifestyle quite naturally. Raised by parents who were both assassins-for-hire, Gregory spent most of his childhood on the run from the CIA, MI6, and Interpol, splitting time between locations in the U.S., Europe, and the Far East.
Seriously though, although none of that is true, don’t hold it against him. He writes the kinds of books that he enjoys reading – mystery/thrillers with lots of action, interesting characters, a dash of humor, and adventures that don’t always feature perfect heroes that save the world with a paper clip and empty toilet paper roll. Struggling against huge odds, dealing with his own demons while trying to even the score, Flint Stryker fits the bill perfectly.
