He is an expert at understanding the trends affecting our industry and its clients, regularly giving interviews to industry media. Furthermore, for four years he wrote the Managed Accounts column in Registered Rep magazine.

Early Life and Education

Gresham always felt like an outsider in society; his family often relocated, making it hard for him to find his place – even after moving to England when he was 17! But he found solace on the water.

Gresham captured this sense of magic and wonder in his writing, featuring supernatural elements that recall the gothic tradition of the South. East Alabama in particular served as an inspiration; he used its landscape as the setting for his debut novel Moon Lake.

Gresham also explores the destructive inner workings of families, as shown in his novel Haunted Ground. This theme runs throughout his work and is balanced out by what Gresham refers to as soul families – groups of people linked with someone going through an emotionally trying time or transitional period.

As an industry expert in producing engaging content and offering executive consulting services to assist advisors and firms meet the demands of this historic Baby Boomer retirement wave, he has become an innovator and leading force.

He also writes suspense, speculative, and horror fiction for both adults and young adults.

Personal Life

Gresham was an avid reader and music enthusiast, being an avid collector of classic rock albums as well as being a member of Mensa. Unfortunately, he lost his battle against pancreatic cancer on April 29, 2017 after fighting it for nearly one year.

Gresham earned numerous accolades throughout his lifetime for his design work, such as winning a Telly award for innovation in financial services marketing and being named Mutual Fund Marketer of the Year by Institutional Investor/Fund Action.

Gresham was drawn to Alabama’s gothic heritage for inspiration for many of his suspense thrillers, particularly those written for young adults. He utilized its supernatural elements when writing novels that focused on Alabama. Gresham used two pen names as separate identities for each work of fiction he wrote – including Primal Instinct (1994) and Haunted Ground (2009) which paid homage to horror film director Val Lewton.
