Jordan M. Poss is a native of Rabun County, in the beautiful north Georgia mountains. In 2010 he graduated from Clemson University, where he studied Anglo-Saxon England and military history, with an MA in European History. He currently teaches Western Civ and American History at Piedmont Technical College in Greenwood, South Carolina.

He lives in upstate South Carolina with his wife—a Texas native—and two children.

No Snakes in Iceland, a ghost story set in Viking Age Iceland, begun in 2007 and published in 2016, is his first published novel. He also wrote and published the historical novella The Last Day of Marcus Tullius Cicero in 2016. Dark Full of Enemies, a commando thriller set in Nazi-occupied Norway during World War II, appeared just before Christmas 2017.

Jordan’s most recent novel is Griswoldville, a coming-of-age story set in Georgia during the American Civil War, which was published in September 2018.

He has appeared as a frequent guest on the Sectarian Review Podcast with Danny Anderson, discussing topics like conspiracy theories, Chick tracts, political correctness, and movies like Office Space, and has been co-presenting an ongoing special series on Roman political history from the Republic to the end of the Empire on The City of Man Podcast with regular host Coyle Neal since 2016. He has also appeared as a guest on the Christian Humanist Podcast, Impolitic with Paul Matzko, The Book of Nature, and The Front Porch Show.
