Forthcoming from Regal House Publishing in Spring 2024: THAT PINSON GIRL, a literary historical novel set during the turbulent World War I era in rural north Mississippi. THAT PINSON GIRL pits an outcast white girl and an elderly black sharecropper against the girl’s murderous brother. The ultimate stakes: who will survive.

Gerry’s story collection, CROSSCURRENTS AND OTHER STORIES, is available at Press 53 or Amazon.


Gerry Wilson’s vivid debut collection tackles a vast array of human experiences: death, birth, love, abuse, parenting, infidelity, youth, and aging. Rich with metaphor and dark symbolism, Crosscurrents shows women fighting the undertow of their tragedies with wisdom and sincerity.      —Erika Krouse, author of Contenders

What a dazzling debut collection. Gerry Wilson’s spare, lucid prose and inventive story design illuminate the secret truth that, even within the loops and tangles of relationships and family, all of us are strays, wild, fragile, and hungry. These stories explore losses and the discoveries loss impels, yet Crosscurrents is, above all, about connection—never easy, often found where least expected, but giving life surprising grace.  —Lynne Barrett, author of Magpies

Gerry Wilson’s stories are about the essential tugs between desires: for safety or risk; for adventure or comfort; for sanctioned action or the indubitably un. Her characters are in mortal combat, most often with themselves. This is a very exciting and compelling collection of stories; I loved reading it. —Antonya Nelson, author of Funny Once: Stories
