Gerri R. Gray was born in the Chicago area. She began writing poetry while in grammar school, and by junior high was composing songs on her guitar and writing short stories and musical stage plays.
Her debut novel, The Amnesia Girl, was published by HellBound Books in 2017. Set in the year 1974, The Amnesia Girl is an offbeat tale of two young women who escape from a New York psychiatric hospital and embark on a very bizarre cross-country journey to California. One Amazon reviewer described it as "a wild romp through the insane."
Gerri's second book, Gray Skies of Dismal Dreams, was published in the spring of the following year, and is a collection of her dark poetry, short horror stories and cemetery photography. Her third book, an all-women horror anthology called The Graveyard Girls, was published in 2018.
