He attended Dublin City University, and also lived in London and Berlin. The first of the seven-part Irish Lottery Series, An Embarrassment of Riches, was an ABNA semifinalist in 2011.

Thanks to all who came to the launches for Gerald's books! Special thanks to the amazing comedian Colin Quinn, who took a break from his one-man Broadway shows, filming for his many TV shows and the Trainwreck movie, to attend and read with Gerald! And thanks, also, to the book clubs who invited Gerald to join them. And who, thankfully, liked his books!
