About Me

Gary has always had a love of the environment learning how to grow plants and vegetables organically from a very young age under the tutelage of his father's gardener.  Being bought up around family dogs and his own pet Dutch rabbit engendered an ongoing love of animals.  The turbulent British political scene during the 1980's and his international career, saw his interest rise in politics. During these early years, he started to write his first novel and many poems.  Pressures of work, a growing family and increased worldwide travel for international companies saw his writing put aside and free time at home spent with family and long country walks with wife and Border collie.  

A holiday to see the land of his father led the family to take up permanent residence in New Zealand. Following the life-changing diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, Gary once again took to writing as a way of keeping his mind active and undertook a creative writing course to hone his skills which he passed with distinction in July 2014.  With his love of the environment and interest in the short term view of politics, The Charles Langham Series was born. Gary is a member of the New Zealand Society of Authors.
     Gary is married with 3 children and a grandson. Favorite pastimes include travel, wine making, propagating shrubs, growing vegetables and looking after two mischievous Dutch house rabbits.

Additional Information

The Angel Strikes: Powerful Fiction & Environmental Sustainability Collide – in Gripping, Timely Series
Meticulously researched and masterfully crafted by Gary Paul Stephenson, the first two volumes in the ‘Charles Langham’ series follow the exploits of an environmental outlaw who will stop at nothing, even if it means defeating and destroying world powers, to save his planet from needless destruction. Both ‘The Pacific Affair’ and ‘The Atlantic Affair’ are the product of hundreds of hours of research into the environment. While most authors craft fiction to give their readers nothing more than a quick thrill, Gary Paul Stephenson has a radically different mandate. His goal, with every word he writes, is to help his readers create a better, more sustainable world.
His vehicle is interesting to say the very least – a compelling, gripping series of fiction. Volumes one and two of the ‘Charles Langham’ series are already on the market, fusing an epic David and Goliath-style battle with a vital message about environmental preservation.
