Gordon Haynes was born in a land far, far away. A land full of marvellous things and odd creatures like platypuses and numbats, though none are odder than a Gordon. Writing began as a trade. His career as an advertising copywriter has seen him weave many a tale for this brand and that. Many awards won, too. But weaving tales for Aardvarks R Us and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Aardvark isn’t as much fun as just weaving tales for tales’ sake.
Most times you’ll find Gordon hunched over a keyboard, tapping away with two fingers, occasionally three (never four). If not hunching, then he’s probably being walked along the banks of the Swan River by his American Staffy, Gabby.
Other oddish things about Gordon: prefers instant coffee to freshly brewed; wonders why he has a beard, shaves it off, then wonders why he doesn’t have a beard; believes if you squint hard enough, you can see anything.

Catching Souls for Beelzebub
Debut author Gordon Haynes pens a comedic fantasy that stretches readers’ imaginations while leaving them in stitches. Catching Souls for Beelzebub pits an average joe against otherworldly beings and teases with the possibility that our beleaguered hero may have found the love of his life.
Abel Freeman is like most guys who get up every day and go to work. Except that he works in Hell. But life is good, and Abel happily counts his blessings. Until two potentially genocidal souls escape to Earth and his boss, the kindly Prince of Darkness, charges him with bringing them back.
The stakes couldn’t be higher, particularly if the Big Guy upstairs gets involved. So Abel embarks on a sometimes terrifying and often awkward journey through space, time, and a curiously high number of restrooms.
No one said the path to redemption would be easy.
