About Austin Gisriel

I truly enjoy “talking” to readers, although I suppose it’s more accurate in this day and age to say “messaging” with readers. After all, books are really a conversation, just one in which the author goes first and does a great deal of talking initially! But only initially. I hope that anyone who reads my books or simply comes across this author page will feel free to join the conversation.

My first published works dealt with baseball—it is my first love—but I am expanding into other topics that I enjoy, and I am exploring them through fiction. Time Is A Pool (2016), a 10-story collection of flash fiction, is my first published effort in this regard, and there are two more releases planned for 2017. The first, The Secret of Their Midnight Tears, is a coming of age novel set during the early days of World War II. (Feel free to contact me for details!) The second, A Faith in the Crowd, is a “heavenly comedy” in which Sam Crawford suddenly finds himself dead and on his way to Heaven, a Heaven completely different from anything he ever read in his Sunday School books.

I have degrees in psychology and theology, meaning that I now know many big words in those two fields, but for the most part, I have majored in Life and all its daily details. It is this quality which makes me a writer worth reading. Occasionally, however, I focus on the really big picture and so I have written “The History of the World” and have done it in three pdf pages. I am happy to send this to you in exchange for the privilege of adding you to my email list. Don’t worry: I don’t offer any courses and I don’t churn out a book every six weeks just to keep selling you something. I’ll send you a note to say hello, and tell you about my latest blog entry (about one every other week) as well as news about work.
