Gerri Bauer

Gerri Bauer

Gerri's idea of a perfect day includes a book, preferably one with a happy ending. She writes Catholic historical romances set in small Florida towns, and short stories about characters who maintain dignity and integrity.

A native of New York City, Gerri found her own small-town haven in Florida years ago. She lives with her husband, spoils her cats, keeps tabs on a far-flung extended family, and gets out into the garden as much as possible, although the plants question her dedication.

Gerri has a B.A. in English from Stetson University, which she earned in midlife while working at the university. A former journalist, she edited The Parce Letters: Voices From the Past, a collection of primary sources on Florida pioneers. Her analysis of the role quilts play in Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings' fiction appears in the 2018 issue of The Journal of Florida Literature. She also blogs about Florida pioneer life.

A needlework nerd whose pace qualifies her for slow-life membership, Gerri shares her space-geek husband's enthusiasm for our final frontier, which helps her remember she doesn't live in the 19th century.
