The author is a Professor at the University of California Medical School at Davis, near Sacramento in Northern California. He writes fast paced “tweener” mystery books (tough mystery stories that follow the cozy conventions of no graphic sex and no bad words), published on Amazon Kindle. Several of the books introduce the readers to South America's Mercosur , a region where he has lived and worked that is a long way from home for most English speakers.
He and his wife Elaine lived previously in Salta, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. Jerry and his wife breed prize-winning and versatile German shorthaired pointer dogs; Elaine provides technical advice for Jerry’s dog-related novels as well as editing for all of the books.
