About Greg Wilkey (Chattanooga, Tennessee Author)
I'm an author and professional public school educator. I'm the creator and writer of two supernatural thrillers for young adults: "The Life and Undeath of Mortimer Drake" vampire novels and "The Neither Nor Series" starring my young paranormal hero, Edgar Flax. I'm also a writer of short stories. I developed a love of stories and adventure at an early age and I've always loved to read and write. Storytelling is just what I do. I graduated from college with a degree in foreign language education and began a career in teaching world languages. I spent 15 years as a classroom teacher of Spanish until moving into school administration. I am currently the principal of East Side Elementary School in downtown Chattanooga. It's a job I absolutely love. Kids and teachers are my favorite people in the world! I live and work in my lovely Chattanooga where I'm the proud pet parent of three wonderfully spoiled felines: Mona, Mina, and the Lady Missy Grey.
