George Encizo is the author of  several award-winning novels. His first novel, Blocker’s Bluff, was published in 2013. Since then he has published many more. A retired banker and an accomplished watercolorist, Encizo took to writing because of arthritic fingers and could no longer hold and control  a brush. In need of a creative outlet, he turned to writing and has been writing over a decade.

His second novel, The Farber Legacy, was awarded a gold medal in the 2015 Florida Authors and Publishers President’s Book Awards. Since then, his other novels have also won awards.

His latest novel, Tagalong is the fifth in a series of JD Pickens Mysteries. He is currently working on more in the series.

When not writing, he is either in the gym or working in the garden with his wife. He gets inspiration from everyday life and ideas come to him from out of nowhere. He and his wife live in Florida.
