Gerry Markee


Gerry is a Toronto-based writer who loves long walks, great books and coffee. I read fantasy, history, science fiction, philosophy, and religion, plus anything else that tickles my fancy. I have worked in health care, chocolate factories, offices, but they are just jobs. What I love to do most is teach. I have taught security people, first aid courses, and customer service classes, because I love meeting and talking to people.

I live with a wonderful friend and partner Annie, a talented daughter poet Shanna , and two strange felines, Max and Borys.. .
