Hello. In case you are not familiar with us, we are a co-writing team and the latest new bestselling authors on Amazon, FICTION BY PHOENIX by Lee & Gary Jordan, co-authors of speculative fiction with a light touch- with just enough supernatural to make you wonder – Why not?
We are writers on fire and a couple of old fogies who love to write.
WAIT! That’s not right. An old fogey is defined as a very conservative, outdated person. We’ re anything but that. Our Muse has begged us to break the shackles of genre and let our imaginations run FREE, to write entertaining stories that let readers escape into unique places.
So our tales defy strict category and may contain a mix of genre, such as fantasy, romance, science fiction, action and adventure, mystery and even some occult. Most of them take place in our real world but bend reality.
Why? Because normal reality is SO boring. Don’t you agree? Together let’s delve into a new look at the world and all of its wild variables of possibility. Join us in our rebellion with genre. We have been told that authors who do not fit into pigeon holes are hard to find on the virtual book shelf. But you found us, and we hope you join our fans.
We live in Hollywood with our ornery tomcat, Snickers, but we don’t spend much time in the wonderful California sunshine. Instead we are maniacs who sit in front of our computer screens, weaving tales we hope you will enjoy.
MY BELOVED GHOST IN THE AMAZON. Jake Priestly is under terrible pressure. He is the foreman for a job in the Amazon, logging a large area of land for a large corporation. As he is sitting contemplating the mess, he becomes distracted and lured into the rainforest. He runs into something that changes his miserable life.
This short story is a modern take on Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest (1904) by William Henry Hudson, with a haunting new twist and a very different ending.
As incentive to join our mailing list, and be first to hear about the release of the exciting new books we have coming up, (see below) we will send you a gift copy from Amazon. (We don’t fill your in box with a lot of clutter.) Or go to Amazon and get it for 99 cents.

Shakti, a young Neanderthal girl, and what is left of her family, have managed to survive up until present day by staying hidden deep in the forests of south western France.

They also remember all of their past lives, which presents a possible threat to another group who have also lived to present day.
For thousands of years, the Neanderthal have been hunted not only by humans, but this much more powerful enemy. She desperately wants to finally have freedom and no longer have to hide. When what is left of Shakti’s family dies, she is all alone. She is discovered wandering, hungry, thirsty, and ill, and her existence becomes big news around the world. Everyone falls in love with the little “cave girl.”
However, all of the attention puts her in the spotlight, which puts her in danger of being hunted again by that deadly entity. She knows too much truth about Earth and the true origins of humankind.
Will Shakti go into hiding, as her people have for all of these millennia, or will she finally fight back after 30,000 years?

Only the most powerful will win. Will it be a new Dark Ages or a cleansed earth?
Here are some reviews from advance readers, all 5 stars.
A Great Read
This is a fun, lighthearted read. If you like vampires and you like pirates you’re going to love this one. And then they kick it up a notch and you’ll love it even more.
A Paranormal Thrill Ride!
If you are looking for an adventure in the palm of your hand this book is a MUST read. The authors take you to a paradise beyond belief, where just under the surface there lies centuries of struggle between good and evil. This book truly has it all, Mystery, Paranormal, Romance, and just enough insanity to make your mind spin! Very well written, with many twist and turns. This book pulls in you and keeps you there, so much that you just can’t put it down, you must know what happens to the characters next! This is one big emotional roller coaster.
You will get very attached to the characters and feel their ups and downs, to the point I even had sympathy for the villain! I really hope they intend to have more adventures with these characters because I am just not ready to let them go!
Packed with Story
This story is packed and I really mean packed with thrills, twists and layers. The writing is adventurous as you get to peek inside the paranormal heads and their prey as the story progresses. The story has it all. Lots of scary, lots of good stuff and lots of story.
Great Page-Turning Story
Leon’s Lair was a quick-paced read that kept me engaged. I like a book that I can’t put down because the story is exciting. I like that it included the paranormal. It was a modern love story with a paranormal twist. The writing was descriptive and fit the book well. At first I believed there would only be “Leon’s group of vampires”, but I was delighted to find other vampires and witches and it was great to see that Remy, herself, discovered she was a witch.
The love story between Jane and Peter was very realistic. Peter was the hero of this book, with a wealth of knowledge of how to get things done (who wouldn’t want a man like that). I also liked that it was set in present day, as that moved the story forward. I also loved Remy and Wolf.
This didn’t take long to read and it actually kept me up “past my bedtime” several nights because I wanted to discover what would happen next. I love stories like that. I was actually sad to have the book end. I feel this could be a “series” if fleshed out a little more for some other characters: Remy and Wolf and the Foundation of Paranormals.
I was privileged to have read this in advance, courtesy of the writers. THANK YOU! I look forward to reading other works.
What a ride!
I decided I needed a break from my usual reads that are Business and How-To books. I got in for an unusual ride to say the least. I’m no fan of vampire stories but I got sunk deep into the flow and frankly couldn’t put the book down. The introduction of each character is such that you feel instant friendliness or antipathy. These people are either good or bad. And I mean, real good or real bad. Each scenery is precisely depicted and I was right there living it. I almost felt sea-sick during the tornado and had to look at my arms a bit later to ensure I hadn’t caught any mosquito bites. The book starts a bit slow but soon picks up speed and lets you panting as numerous aspects of the story develop. Warning: unexpected twists will keep you turning the pages and miss bedtime.
