About Gerald Simpkins

Now retired, I had a lifelong career in telecommunications. I have a love of the written word and have always admired those who can skillfully express feelings and events in writing. My novel 'Forever Young The Beginning' is my first attempt at fiction. I also wrote a book about Bible Codes in 1998 which is titled 'Secrets of the Bible'.

I live in the Southeastern United States in the countryside with my wife Kathy. For some ten years, I had a deep love affair with flying. Hopelessly hooked after my very first flight on a hang glider, I began a journey of flying gliders and ultralights, even becoming a dealer for three different brands and an observer for the southeastern region of the then U S H G Assn. To this day, I have to say that I loved that more than any past time, hobby, or sport in which I ever participated. Next to being a husband and father, it was the high point of my life.

I love to write and I thoroughly enjoy creating characters and developing them to where my readers can get a feel for not only how they look, but how they tick. Developing a plot and filling it with shocks, surprises, humorous events, and tenderness is what I strive for; and I love to fill my stories with the full range of human emotions from true love to extreme hatred, from warm companionship to extreme rage, and from laughter to tears. Surprises and the full range of human emotions should be liberally sprinkled throughout the length of a good story in my view. My goal is to transport the reader to a place where he cannot otherwise go simply by the power of my words. I hope to refine the skills that I have long admired before I ever turned my hand toward becoming an author.

This was a refreshing and entertaining read. I really enjoyed the flow of the story, as well as the action. The romance was there, but not overblown. Good writing.

This book is very well written and easy to follow while it draws you into the story. The characters are great and the experiences they have really do bring out the humanity in them so this is unlike any other vampire book.
It also managed to keep me glued to it untill the very end and convinced me to run and get the next book too. If I should criticize anything I would say that it's a little anoying that everyone manages to get a significant other and hold on to it while our main guy seems to be star-crossed at every turn. Even so this is most certainly a very good read and it has 5 stars from me with hopes of hearing more in the future from this author.

Well done Gerald! This was an intricate, engaging and easy to read story. I am completely in love with Ian! I like this portrayal of vampires, it is somehow more humane than most others. The characters were all well developed and the plot for the most part flowed swiftly. I look forward to reading more.
