My name is Gregory E. Lang; my friends call me Greg. I am an author and photographer living with my family in the Atlanta, GA suburbs. My series of inspirational books about faith and family relationships have sold over 3.5 million copies. Several of my titles have appeared on the New York Times Best-Sellers List; I have also published over 550 photographs. I write nearly every day - it is practically a compulsion.
My quest to become an author began in 1998 when I wrote a book for my daughter expressing my love and hopes for her. Over the next four years the book was rejected sixty-two times before Cumberland House Publishing agreed to release it. That book, Why a Daughter Needs a Dad: One Hundred Reasons, became a reality in 2002 and has since appeared on the New York Times list four times. I've been writing and taking photographs ever since. I am currently published by Thomas Nelson Publishing and Sourcebooks.
In addition to my work as an author and photographer, I work as the Executive Director of The Good Samaritan Health Center of Gwinnett, a non-profit medical clinic serving the poor and uninisured, also a Christian ministry. I love serving the Lord by serving His people.
I have the great pleasure of being married to my best friend, Jill. We have two daughters, Meagan Lang and Linley Davis, both college students. I am also the eldest son of my parents, Gene and Dianne Lang of Lizella, GA, a small town near Macon, GA. I have four siblings, all still living in Macon, my hometown.
I graduated from Southwest High School in 1978, Mercer University in 1980 & 1983, and finally from the University of Georgia with a Ph.D. in Child and Family Development in 1990. I moved to Atlanta, GA in 1987 and have remained here since. I worked my way through college as a jewelry designer and upon completing my doctorate degree, entered the healthcare field. I remained in that industry until 2005, when I then decided to become a fulltime author and photographer.
I hope to continue to write books until the end of my time, but if that doesn't work out I plan to launch a new career as either a crocodile wrangler or rodeo clown. Please purchase one of my books and help save me from the inevitable occupational hazards I might face otherwise.
