Greg Younger was born in Urbana, Illinois, on the day after Christmas in August of 1961. He was educated at the sports-oriented Mahomet-Seymour High School, where he spent much of his time playing football (where he won a State Championship), hunting/fishing, and reading every science fiction or fantasy book in the town’s library. He went on to Illinois State University to study Accounting.
In 2005, he gave it all up to move to an area in Florida called the Nature Coast. This harkened to his days of growing up in a small Midwestern community. Not able to just sit around he decided to try something completely different, real estate. He eventually opened his own company.
Greg had always thought he could write a science fiction book and even had outlined one he’d given the working title of Star Academy. Knowing he wasn’t ready for that he decided to write about what he knew, sports. From that grew an epic series of novels: A Stupid Boy Story.
