Gerry Wilson

Gerry Wilson loves beaches and mountains equally, great books, music, art, photography, and fabulous food. She is a fiction writer, wife, mother of four grown sons, grandmother of six—three boys and three girls—and step-grandmom to three more boys (including a set of fraternal twins).

A life-long Mississippian, Gerry taught high school English and creative writing for twenty-plus years. She learned the craft of fiction along with her students, but she has also worked with great writers in workshops: Dorothy Allison, Connie May Fowler, Jane Hamilton, and Ron Hansen. She has published short fiction in a number of journals and magazines. “Pieces,” a short story, appeared in the April 2012 issue of Prime Number Magazine.

She’s currently revising her second novel and looking for a home for her first. She offers private writing consultation in fiction, memoir, and poetry.
