Hi.
This page was supposed to tell you all about me,
the author, Gregory Gerard.
In my mind, it was really cool—
with links to my current writing projects:

—and pictures, and clever quotes,
and maybe even a funny video or two.

But, honestly,
we had a bat in our turn-of-the-century* house
(*the old, classic, Bela Lugosi century,
not the new, flashy, millennial century)
last night, which began to flit about the living room
around midnight (of course) just as I was going to bed—
and I spent half the night in a hoodie, gloves, and sweats trying to coax it (unsuccessfully) out an open window.

--------------------------------

So, instead of fun & clever,
you just get tired old me telling you
that I wrote a new book (fiction) called
THE MARTINI CHRONICLES

about the strong friendship between a
single gay guy and a straight married woman.
Some think it's funny and dramatic
and has tasty martini recipes
(for those of you of legal age).

The Martini Chronicles

The manuscript was a finalist in the
2015 University of New Orleans
Publishing Laboratory contest.
I'm currently working to secure an
agent/publisher for this project.
Stay tuned.*
(*unless, of course, you are an agent and looking for the next thing, in which case drop me an EMAIL!
)

--------------------------------

And I wrote an old book (memoir) called
IN JUPITER'S SHADOW
about growing up gay and Catholic.
Some think it's funny and dramatic and
has some good advice for those struggling
with the whole gay vs. religion thing
(for those of you of any age).

--------------------------------

And I started a new nonfiction journal called
THE BIG BRICK REVIEW
to build on the narrative of our lives.
Some think it's dramatic or funny
(and sometimes both!) and
will serve as inspiration for
emerging and established writers.

--------------------------------

SO,
if you really wanted to know more about Gregory Gerard,
the writer, not Gregory Gerard, the tired website designer,
take a stroll over to my
IN JUPITER'S SHADOW

site. It's got all the good stuff
you were probably looking for here. 

That's the one I built on the
non-bat-flying-around-at-midnight day.
