Jordon grew up in a small southern town in the foothills just south of Boone, North Carolina. He is an alumni of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a B.S. in Political Science he'll never use, and works at the nation's largest privately owned shoe retailer as a full-stack web developer to pay off all that student debt. While not writing, Jordon spends most his time entertaining his cat, Genji, watching Schitt's Creek and Parks and Recreation re-runs, and acting like he's any good at Overwatch. He currently lives in Kannapolis, NC where he's a mere six minutes away from his favorite coffee shop.

"Greene is a tremendously talented writer and he has created characters that I cared about, characters whose happiness I found myself invested in ... A Mark on My Soul isn't a feel-good read, but it is a vitally important one." (Larry H., It's Either Sadness or Bookphoria Blog)
"I was angry, I was devastated, and I cried... Some people have the ability to "leave a mark" on someone else's soul, and this is the heartbreaking story of one such case. The main character is eighteen-year-old Noah who discovers the joy and exhilaration of first love, the accompanying emotions of hope and optimism, and the utter devastation that follows when circumstances (and a**hole people!) take it all away. I wish I could say this is only fiction and real life is better than that - but I can't. The realism is part of what makes this such a powerful novel - both the good parts and the bad. Let me warn you: it is not an easy book to read, but it is a story that needs to be told until the kind of hatred causing this type of cruelty and heartbreak stops." (Serena Yates, Rainbow Book Reviews)
"[It's] heart-breaking and magical. The love and friendship between Noah, Parker, and Cam radiates off the page ... I cried until I could no longer see through my glasses." (Charlotte Kinzie, Goodreads)
"This story was incredible, beautiful, unexpected and heartbreaking, and I would honestly let Jordon Greene break my heart all over again, just to get another read of Noah's story." (Cathrine Rossen, Goodreads)
"I loved this story ... I felt like I sat right next to Noah, getting angry with him, crying with him, being confused with him. It's one of those books ... that stick in your head even when you're not reading it." (Brittany, Goodreads)
