Gerald Armitage is a former fry cook, strip club bouncer and librarian who decided to start writing because he was really curious what it would be like and ended up loving it. He is still recovering from having a literature degree but despite that handicap managed to become a functional member of society. His children are helping him prevent a chronic onset on adulthood. He enjoys writing a variety of genres and using the fantastic to explore themes. As a child of the 70s and 80s he has an affection for outrageous premises and catchy but bad music.
Most of Armitage's writing is done on his deck surrounded by cats and dogs underneath his fig tree while the fascist squirrels throw things at him. His writing has been praised for his dialogue and sense hyper-reality.
