Biography

Godfrey Jordan started as a freelance photographer for the Toronto Star in the summer of '69 documenting the performances and candid moments of many classic rock musicians. He attended the Woodstock Music Festival and, at 19, returned to Ireland to work at the Eamonn Andrews Recording Studios. He was the youngest employee at their Dublin studio to engineer and produce both 45 rpm and LP album recordings.

A graduate of York University's film program, he established a full time career in government communications as a writer/producer/director of educational, documentary, PSAs and drama programs. Later as a project manager he initiated their transition to a digital media platform. Scripts were written for actors, labourers, office workers, scientists, CEOs and the Premier of Ontario. He continued to write feature-length screenplays funded by various agencies, optioned but not produced.

His international publishing credits include an 8 book series "The MicroKidz" (high-tech mystery adventures, translated into French, German, Spanish and Turkish); "The Starr Family Advenutres" (NASA-themed mysteries); and two non-fiction bestsellers published by Random House: "The Official Kids Book Of Baseball," and "Hoops: The Complete Guide to Basketball," sanctioned by the N.B.A. He resides in Toronto.
