Dr. Gregory Horning

As a teen, Gregory Horning loved to read thrilling classic tales of adventure and romance such as Ben Hur, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and The Count of Monte Cristo, but never dreamed he would one day write a book himself. While attending Earlham College, he had his junior year at the American University of Beirut, and had the opportunity of traveling through several parts of the Middle East. It was eye-opening to be immersed in a Muslim culture, and questioned about what “you Christians believe.” Not having good answers, he decided to read the Bible for himself, and eventually gave his life to Jesus Christ, a wise decision, and one that has made his life a Great Adventure.

After college, he pursued a career in dentistry, and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Indiana University School of Dentistry while on a Navy scholarship. After that, he completed his General Practice Residency at the Naval Hospital in San Diego, and his Periodontics specialty Residency at University of Missouri-Kansas City. In his long career in dentistry, he has served in a variety of clinics and hospitals, directed both General Practice Residency and Periodontics Residency programs, and taught extensively both in the U.S. and abroad. A Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, he has published over 22 professional articles, a book chapter, and many newspaper articles. Recently retired from full-time practice, he is currently associated with the Park Place Dental Clinic, a non-profit clinic that provides dental treatment for low-income adults in Norfolk, Virginia.

Gregory has pursued many hobbies, including running, kayaking, woodworking, and travel; but he has always loved reading good books. Frustrated that so few meet his standards for high adventure and romance, his passion is to write stories that refresh, entertain, and inspire those of us who grow weary of having to resist the seductive but false worldviews all around us, and the corruptions. He wrote Noah’s Boys in the City of Mother Earth to be the kind of book he would like to read. Pleased with the initial reception of his first novel, he has begun working on the sequel, Noah’s Boys and the Jewels of Havilah, which is planned for publication in 2018. Gregory and his wife Diane live in Chesapeake, Virginia. He is always happy to meet and talk with other writers, and is ever looking for exciting new ideas.
