Gerry MacOstair

Biography

Gerry MacOstair is an Austrian independent author and publisher. Having fallen hopelessly in love with the written word at a very young age (at around 5) and taken a strong interest in politics shortly thereafter (at around 8), he never quite recovered from either. Growing up during the political unrest of the 1970s and 1980s in a country encircled by powers stubbornly adhering to utterly contradicting ideologies didn’t help his case, either. “They Made Me Say It” is not Gerry’s first published book, but it is his debut as an utterly independent production.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The act or of writing, actually. The process when thoughts eventually take shape to become sentences, paragraphs, chapters ...
Who are your favorite authors?
Oh, my! After 40 years of reading across all genres, keeping this list short is quite a challenge. Let me put it this way: Unless you haven’t read more than one book (or play, or novella, or short story) by the likes of William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Isabel Allende, Hermann Hesse, Gabo García Márquez, or J.R.R. Tolkien, and felt the urge to immediately recommend each one to a friend, you shouldn’t go and call yourself a serious reader.
