About the Author

“I truly enjoy ‘talking’ to readers, although I suppose it’s more accurate in this day and age to say ‘messaging’ with readers,” says Austin Gisriel, author of The Boys We Knew. “After all, books are really a conversation, just one in which the author goes first and does a great deal of talking initially, but only initially. I hope that anyone who reads my books will feel free to join the conversation through my blog,, my Amazon author page, or Goodreads.” Gisriel’s first published works dealt with baseball—his first love—but he expanded into another favorite topic, World War II, particularly, the home front. The Boys We Knew is the second book in a planned trilogy that follows several young people from the small town of Marsh Point who are trying to find their way, as all young people must do, even as the world descends into chaos. The first book in the series, The Secret of Their Midnight Tears begins in June of 1941 and ends at Thanksgiving, 1942, when Americans are fully realizing the sacrifice that will be required to defeat Totalitarianism. “My interest in World War II actually began with my discovery of swing music and swing dancing. As I got older, of course, I gained a deep appreciation for what my parents experienced. My dad was a sailor aboard a destroyer and my mom was a seamstress and a secretary at Butler Brothers in Baltimore, a textile factory which had a contract to produce blouses for the WAVES.” While researching the life of Boots Poffenberger, a major baseball player, who also played for the United States Marine Corps, Gisriel became intrigued by what life must have been like on the home front. This series is a result of these various streams of interest. Gisriel and his wife Martha, reside in Stephenson, Virginia in the lower Shenandoah Valley. Works available in soft-cover or e-book editions on Amazon include: The Secret of Their Midnight Tears (2017) fiction Fathers, Sons, & Holy Ghosts: Baseball as a Spiritual Experience (2017) non-fiction Time Is A Pool (2016) collection of flash fiction Boots Poffenberger: Hurler, Hero, Hell-Raiser (2014) non-fiction Austin invites you to visit his blog where you can read more about me if you like. Let the conversation begin!
