Words spilling out for local author

Published: Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 09:59 AM.

Gerald has been published by Public America. The company assumes all expenses, pays no upfront costs and makes their books available to all booksellers. Gerald is among featured authors on Amazon.com.

The publishing company, Gerald said, serves a launching pad for authors and is excellent at marketing its authors and their works.

Gerald said that once she sat down with pen and pad – a traditionalist, she also types with a typewriter – the words, the sentences seem to take care of themselves.

She does not plot or outline her books before beginning the task of writing, she said.

The books, and the plots, just spill out, she said.

“I feel like I am vessel in this,” Gerald said. “I have so many books in my mind, it is difficult sorting them out.

“I am going to write what I feel. I feel like I work by divine intervention. The book just writes itself. It is different at the end that it was at the beginning. I love it. I sit and do it.”
