About the author (2010)

An Eclectic life has provided the author of Valerie's Dream and End of Madness with a vast reservoir of experiences. Gregory spent a number of years in the United States Diplomatic Corp, holding down assignments in the Congo, England, Russia, Chad, Mexico, the Philippines and Washington, D. C. After leaving the Foreign Service, he became an administrator of a satellite branch of a large west coast blood bank. That experience preceded a brush with the world of municipal politics where he served as the chief of Staff to the mayor of Warwick, Rhode Island. Gregory also spent a number of years as co-owner of a public relations and advertising firm on the east coast. Jerry and his wife, Francine, are parents of three children, Jerilyn, Jay and June and two grandchildren, Boston and Marlee.
