E. G. Sergoyan was a part of the aerospace industry for over 42 years. He holds degrees in aeronautical and mechanical engineering.

His recent non-fiction book, “The Gathering Place; a collection of stories from the Armenian Social Club in Old Shanghai” is available through Amazon. This book is based on interviews with travelers and family migrating across Asia from Armenia, to Siberia, Mongolia, into Northern China and Shanghai during the Japanese occupation. They witnessed genocide, revolution, banditry, occupation and two World Wars, as they struggled to get to America.

In 2017, he released a new ‘based on fact’ novella about Armenians in Kars, Turkey circa 1810 called “The Tales of Ohan” which can be considered a prequel to his previous book.

The novel, “The Tchaikovsky” is a fiction thriller about a child prodigy possessed by a ghost and the para-psychologist who uses Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto (one of the most difficult solo instrumentals ever composed) to effect an exorcism.

Sergoyan is one of the contributing authors in a spooky Halloween anthology called “Tasting Evil” published in 2019 by the Writers Cooperative of the Pacific Northwest.

He will be releasing a new Sci-Fi book, titled “The Dreamweaver” in early 2020.

He and his wife live in Mukilteo, Washington with family nearby. He spends his retirement enjoying the mountains and underwater scenery in the American Northwest, hand knotting oriental rugs on a Tabriz loom, and writing more thrillers.

Amazon Reviews

“The “The Gathering Place” was historical, entertaining, sad and happy. I have known Nina, a story contributor, for almost 20 years. We worked together in the 1990s just before both her parents passed away. We often spoke about them and Nina’s experiences remembered in old Shanghai, Chicago, and California. Our lives weaved together from Chicago on. E. G. Sergoyan has done an excellent job telling the story so many immigrant families, if possible, should have told. If not recorded or written down, this first hand history is partially lost. Thank you to E. G. Sergoyan, and all the contributors, for making this available for us to read.”
“Great story about the origins of the author’s family and the struggles of the Armenians as they wend their way East to ultimately come to America. The story is primarily about a single ethnic group beset by man-inflicted tradjedy and how they coped, inspired and nutured each other and held out in various places until their final launch to America from Shanghai after WW II. It is entertaining and quite humourous in parts.”
“What a story! It didn’t take long to suck me into this story. The buildup and pacing was phenomenal and the characters were so interesting and compelling. The magical realism/unearthly/ghostly part of the story wasn’t overwhelming or unusual in its treatment.”
