Gordon Snider missed becoming a native Californian by 5 months,which may explain his wanderlust. He has traveled extensivelythroughout the world, including such exotic destinations asUzbekistan, Patagonia, Amazon, Borneo, Burma and the Himalayancountries of Tibet, Bhutan and Nepal.Prior to becoming a full-time author, Gordon spent thirty years as anindependent marketing consultant and taught at four universities,most recently at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Ever popular with hisstudents, Gordon has received two Faculty Of The Year Awards, onefrom University of Phoenix in the MBA program, and one from CalPoly.He earned his bachelor’s degree in business from UCLA and hismasters in marketing from California State University Los Angeles,where he was named the Outstanding Marketing Student of the Year.He has also been active in professional associations, includingPresident of both the Southern California American Marketing Association and the Northern CaliforniaDecorating Products Association.Gordon has published numerous magazine articles, many on travel destinations, and two business books.His second business book, How to Become a Killer, was published in 1999 and was the basis for apopular seminar that he presented at trade shows and conventions throughout the U.S. and Canada. Themagazine articles often included his photography.One thing led to another, and he eventually found himself photographing for tour operators. One of hisassignments took him to Tibet. The country so mesmerized him that he wrote his first novel about it,entitled
Sigourney’s Quest
. Since then, he has published three more novels,
The Separatist,TheHypnotist
, and
Venice Lost
. His latest book, a humorous look at travel entitled I’m Traveling as Fastas I Can, is scheduled to be released later this year.Currently, Gordon and his wife, Fe, enjoy walking the beaches and observing the migrating whales fromtheir home in Pismo Beach, California. It is, he says, the perfect setting for his creative writing.

Featured Book:The Hypnotist – by Gordon Snider 
In 1906, San Francisco has reached the peak of its golden age.Fortunes have created a society that attracts European opera singersand cordon bleu chefs. It is a world defined by elegant balls, oysters,and champagne. But there are darker sides to the city as well. Oneof these darker places is The Mission district south of Market Streethouses tenements where shanties huddle together and rats plague thestreets. And nearby sits Chinatown, an endless warren of dark alleysthat offers gambling, prostitution, and opium, all controlled byvicious gangs, called tongs. Into these disparate worlds steps MartaBaldwin, a young woman who has shunned her own socialbackground to help the poor. She is confronted by a hypnotist, aman who hypnotizes young women from the tenements and deliversthem to the tongs in Chinatown to work in their brothels. Martaescapes his hypnotic trance, but when her assistant, Missy,disappears, Marta realizes she has been taken by the evil man whoconfronted her. She seeks the help of Byron Wagner, one of SanFrancisco's most prominent citizens. Marta finds herself drawn toByron but knows his high social standing prevents any possibility of a relationship between them. Thisis confirmed when Marta discovers Byron having an intimate conversation with Lillie Collins, thedaughter of one of the city's most elite families. Marta is flushed with jealousy. However, Lillie defiessocial customs, and her rebellious nature fits naturally with Marta's. Despite her envy, the two womenbecome close friends. Marta is caught up in a whirlwind of opulent balls, opium dens and brothels, andpolice raids in Chinatown. She cannot deny her feelings for Byron, but she must save Missy and protecther new friends from harm. For lurking in the background is the hypnotist. He has become obsessedwith Marta and will use all his guile to ensnare her. When he threatens those she loves, Marta isdetermined to stop him, even at her own peril. Will her boldness entrap her? If so, how can she hope toescape the man's hypnotic embrace? Then the earth moves, and nothing will ever be the same again.
Review:
Gordon Snider has written another compelling spellbinder. I had a hard time putting it down once Istarted reading. He deftly weaves his story into San Francisco's Chinatown in the early 1900s, and hisexciting tale makes the historical events of that time extremely real. All in all, this is a terrific read. --Linda Thompson, author and editor
.
A compelling and expertly told tale, The Hypnotist will leave Gordon's fans waiting for the sequel. --Maureen MacIntosh, book critic.
