Writing

under the pen-name "Gerald M. Givens"
I grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan where from an early age my interests in history and storytelling were built through frequenting museums with my mother. At age eight, I wrote my first story, Tim, Tom & Sam, a children's tale about a dog, a cat, and a mouse that became friends and lived together. In high school, my interest in writing grew through the study of poetry. Inspired by the poems of Edgar Allen Poe, I began writing poetry and eventually self-published an anthology of my work. At Western Michigan University, I wrote my first novel, Eyes in Atlantis, and I've been writing ever since.

Inspiration

My writing infuses the influences of renowned authors Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park), J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter), J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings), George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire), and Dan Brown (The DaVinci Code).

 

Primarily interested in all things fiction, I gravitate toward Science Fiction and Fantasy as my reads of choice. My favorite novels include:

- The Lost World by Michael Crichton

- Siddhartha by Herman Hesse

- A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin
