MOVED BY THE HORRIBLE SEPTEMBER 11 TRAGEDY, JACK LONDON’S COUSIN WRITES
The very talented and well-known author, Jack London, was Boyd’s distant cousin. Boyd Thomas London was born on November 6, 1974, in Beaver, Utah. Boyd’s dad, Roy London, has a B.S. degree in Forestry from the University of California, Berkley. Boyd’s mom, Gerri, has a B.A. degree from Azusa Pacific University, Azusa, California and is certified as a teacher. Roy London was employed by the Forest Service at Twin Falls, Idaho, where Boyd attended Kindergarten. Roy was then transferred to the small town of Fairfield, Idaho, where his family still resides. Boyd attended school at Fairfield, Idaho through the eighth grade. He then attended and graduated from Wood River High School in Hailey, Idaho, with a 3.96 GPA, in June of 1993. During his high school years, Boyd was a member of the National Honor Society, student of the month, and was given awards for outstanding academic achievement in English, History, Economics, and Spanish. He was also awarded the Presidential Academic Fitness Award. Boyd then joined the United States Air Force, where he served as a Munitions Systems Specialist for four years, primarily working on missiles and precision-guided bombs. Boyd was a distinguished Honor Graduate from his weapon’s school at Lowry Air Force Base, Denver, Colorado, and was also given an award by his commander for being the number one student in his schooling. Boyd was stationed primarily at Elmendorf AFB Anchorage, Alaska. During his time of service, he took part in an exercise testing the readiness of South Korean forces at Osan AFB, South Korea, and also spent four months in Saudi Arabia, helping to support Operation Southern Watch. During his four years of service in the Air Force, Boyd was awarded the Air Force Good Conduct Medal, the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award and the prestigious Air Force Achievement Medal. After completing his four year term of service, Boyd remained in Alaska and then completed his first two years of college at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, with a 3.95 GPA. During his studies at the University of Alaska, Boyd was awarded the Mable Crawford Memorial Scholarship, was recognized by the Chancellor for four semesters as being a distinguished Chancellor’s Scholar, was awarded by Golden Key National Honor Society as being one of the top students in his sophomore class, and Boyd received the multiple year award from the National Dean’s List, an honor given to only one half of one percent of our nation’s college students. Boyd is currently attending Boise State University in Idaho where he is finishing his BBA degree in marketing. Boise State University has awarded Boyd the William H. & Gladys E. Langroise Undergraduate Business scholarship, the John & Lois Elorriaga Business scholarship, and has inducted Boyd into the Golden Key National Honor Society. Boyd’s hobbies and enjoyed activities include flying radio controlled airplanes, bodybuilding, and teaching Sunday school classes to children at his church. Boyd competed in the 1997 Anchorage Bodybuilding Championships, placing 5th, and he was featured in the August 1998 edition of Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness Magazine. Creeton is Boyd’s first novel. Boyd wrote Creeton on behalf of the September 11 first year remembrance. On September 11, 2001, the world was awakened to the brutality of evil. Creeton is a very powerful story that instills the virtue of worldwide peace in the reader’s mind, and Boyd hopes and dreams for the people of Earth to one day live in total peace. His second novel shows the pain and hurt caused by a DUI accident, as a young man is hit by a drunk driver and is left in a coma, in his novel Dream Wanderer.
Boyd is writing two new books, Shadow Jumpers and The Star Seekers. Boyd, like Jack London, loves the outdoors, and he has many beautiful pictures of Idaho, where he resides.
