About Jeff Barganier
After Barganier accidentally slashed his leg with a machete while clearing land, a brokerage firm colleague facetiously dubbed him “The Slash Broker.” The quip prompted him to pen the first lines of his debut novel. Barganier began writing in 1994 while employed as a broker with a global securities firm. He was widely interviewed on talk-radio programs, 1998-2000, concerning his debut novel about a young stockbroker caught in a web of international intrigue between American patriots and international human organ traffickers. In addition, he’s authored countless newspaper, magazine and blog features of every conceivable variety, including travel, art/culture, editorial, book review and legal commentary. His writing reflects his diverse background in banking, law practice, investments, teaching, politics, law enforcement and military. Barganier’s work has appeared in Good Grit, Dutch, the magazine, BOOM! Magazine, Alabama Magazine, Architectural Salvage News, Montgomery Living, The Montgomery Independent, The Montgomery Advertiser, Review Magazine, The Montgomery Standard, River Region Magazine; and in at least one rogue international publication. He loves to write stories that are interesting and educational, yet humorous and entertaining. Some favorite travel features include: Fly fishing on Oregon’s Rogue River; “Thatching” the roof of an 18th century Netherland’s farmhouse; Tennessee’s Blackberry Farm; Alabama’s Chief Ladiga Bicycle Trail; Georgia’s coastal islands. He’s an avid outdoorsman and travels extensively upon the slightest excuse for something interesting to write about.
