About the Author...
Greg’s background includes 27 years as an executive in the automotive industry and twelve years as a teacher of American history, language arts, reading, drama, film criticism and Latin in the public school system in suburban Chicago. He holds a BA in economics from the University of Kansas and a Master of Arts in education from Aurora University.
Of greater relevance, he has written more than 20 books on the history of American railroads, a logical outcome of having grown up in a family of professional railroaders. His first title, Route of the Eagles, a history of the Missouri Pacific Railroad, was released in 1995 and his most recent effort will be in print in mid-2019.
Now retired from the day-to-day work force, he still writes for at least two hours every day (when not fishing, traveling, going to the movies or pursuing rail fan activities). His advice to aspiring writers is “…keep reading, keep writing, and if your dream is to one day see your name in print, never, ever give up. The more you write, the better you will get, and one day your dream will become a reality.”
Greg resides with his wife and two cats, Wallace and Gromit, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where he is also a member of the Heartland Writers Guild.

News and Reviews...
“With Lost Little Girl, get ready to meet your newest favorite detective, Jackson Gamble. He’s a PI with an ironic view of the world, an equal ease in strip clubs and executive offices, and an openness to falling in love. Greg Stout makes Gamble’s Nashville, Tennessee as gritty and vivid—a character in its own right—as Lew Archer’s Los Angeles. Can’t wait for the sequel!” — Mark Levenson, author of The Hidden Saint
“This [The Gone Man] is a fast-paced, exciting read. I recommend it.”— Lo Monaco, author of Lethal Relations and Poison Butterfly
“In The Gone Man, Stout weaves an intricate whodunnit and I was guessing throughout. It ends with a shocking reveal and I found the ending to be just what I look for in a book: completely and utterly satisfying.” — Wendy Sand Eckel, Author of the award-winning Rosalie Hart Mystery Series
“Greg Stout is back with his tough, captivating, and enviably witty PI, Jackson Gamble; with language that compels the reader forward; characters so real they stand in front of you; and an intricate maze of corruption that will challenge your problem-solving abilities.” — Libi Siporin, author of Murder on the Tuscan Trail mysteries
