Author Bio for Gregory, Jackson
Jackson Gregory (1882-1943)
Jackson Gregory was an American teacher, journalist, and writer of western and detective stories. Graduating from UC-Berkeley in 1906, he began as a teacher, then a school principal, and later as a newspaper reporter in four states and Cuba. Moving back to Berkeley, he tried his hand as a fiction writer by contributing short stories to the pulp magazines. After a dispute with a magazine editor, he forwarded his first novel manuscript to a publisher and his career as a writer then took off.
He would go on to be one of America’s more successful and prolific authors in the first half of the 20th century with 40 novels and numerous short stories published. Though the vast majority of his stories were about the American Old West, he did occasionally venture into other genres, like mysteries, fantasies or South Seas adventures. His writing formula was usually a successful combination of an abundance of action, adventure and suspense coupled with a dependable story line about areas and the life he was familiar with in the American Southwest.
