Biography of Geoffrey Wells
The diverse interests of piano, playing drums, running track, observing elephants in Botswana and exploring Mozambique, gave Wells a framework for his first thriller, A FADO FOR THE RIVER. He found adventure climbing the Drakensberg Mountains and in the cold desert nights while conscripted into a South African commando unit on the Angolan border. His career as Art Director in advertising led him to the American Film Institute, and later digital technology propelled him to VP/CIO at Disney, ABC-TV stations and Fox. Wells wrote an award-winning animated film, has visited elephant reserves and climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro. He lives on Long Island where he swims the open water and runs a video and design company.
He writes suspense about imperfect characters who fight villains that devastate our natural and virtual ecosystems. He has just published a children’s book, Moonglow about the North Fork forests.
Geoffrey Wells writes about privacy, elephant conservation, cyber trends, and music. And of course, updates on his latest thriller, Atone for the Ivory Cloud.
