Charles G. Irion
is a publisher, author, entrepreneur, adventurer and philanthropist. For several decades Irion has been the sole proprietor and broker for U.S. Park Investments, a leading operator of Manufactured Home and RV communities in the United States.
One of Irion’s life-long passions is for the written word, he made that dream a reality when he released the first book in his Hell Series, Remodeling Hell in 2007. Inspired by real life hellish events, Irion wrote the Hell Series based on frustrations he experienced. Remodeling Hell was inspired after Irion was thrust into the role of contractor after he purchased a home he wanted to remodel. Autograph Hell soon followed, and gives readers tips of the trade that Irion has learned after three decades of collecting memorabilia. These led to Car Dealer Hell and Divorce Hell. Each true book relates not just Irion’s own personal experiences, but the essential information he learned along the way. Irion hopes these books will help readers that may find themselves in the same predicaments he experienced.
While writing the Hell series, the start of the Summit Murder Mystery Series, the most unique murder mystery series ever written, was born. Inspired by Irion’s 1987 attempt to climb Mt. Everest and later, a 2011 climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro, each book in the series is set atop the highest point of the world’s seven continents. Deaths from falls, avalanches, illness, heart attacks, and high altitude sickness, are a matter of course, when you add in murder, the combination makes for an unforgettable read. The climb begins with the first book in the series, Murder on Everest, and is followed with Murder on Elbrus, Murder on Mt. McKinley, Murder on Puncak Jaya, Murder on Aconcagua, Murder on Vinson Massif and ends with Murder on Kilimanjaro. For more information about this series, visit www.summitmurdermystery.com
