About this author

Gerald grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan where from an early age his interests in history and storytelling were built through frequenting museums with his mother.

At age eight, he wrote his first story, TIM, TOM, & SAM, a children's tale about a dog, a cat, and a mouse that became friends and lived together.

In high school, his interest in writing grew through the study of poetry. Inspired by the poems of Edgar Allen Poe, Gerald began writing poetry and eventually self-published an anthology of his work.

It was in college at Western Michigan University that he wrote his first novel and has been writing ever since.

In his spare time he likes to listen to music, spend time in nature, and practice yoga. He now lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
