Brought up in north Belfast, she graduated in English and Philosophy from Queen's University, Belfast, then went on to gain an MA in English. She lives just outside Belfast, in Northern Ireland, has four grown up children and is married to author, media producer and broadcaster, Raymond McCullough, with whom she co-edited the Irish magazine, 'Bread', (published by Kingdom Come Trust), from 1990-96. In 1995 they published a non-fiction book called, 'Ireland - now the good news!' Over the past few years Gerry has had around sixty short stories published in UK, Irish and American magazines, anthologies and annuals - as well as broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster. Her poems and articles have been published in several Northern Ireland and UK magazines, and she has also done readings from her novels, poems and short stories at several Irish literary events. She writes a regular literary blog - Gerry's Books - and guest writes for several other literary blogs. Gerry won the Cúirt International Literary Award for 2005 (Galway); was shortlisted for the 2008 Brian Moore Award (Belfast); shortlisted for the 2009 Cúirt Award; and commended in the 2009 Seán O'Faolain Short Story Competition, (Cork).

This children's tale of high adventure is a lovely warm story. Filled with plenty of action it still carries the subtle messages of friendship and the importance of family relationships.

I loved how Jip and Nora got caught up in adventure after adventure going back in time to deal with a variety of famous Irish icons, like the female pirate Grania, in their quest to discover why their ancestor was never credited for inventing the radar used by boats to manoeuvre safely through dangerous waters.

Their relationships with fellow crew men, slowly seeped into their own time as they made some interesting discoveries about new and old friends.

The snapper guided them on their journeys, ensuring they kept to a strict code of ethics to further their cause. Including consequences if they were led off the moral path.

I'm sure kids and young adults alike would enjoy Lady Molly. It's written in excellent prose to suit the intended audience and has enough antics to keep any young mind turning the page.

We all love a good family tale and this is one that I would highly recommend.

Lady Molly &the Snapper is a delightful YA adventure that is both entertaining and educational. The characters are well crafted and loveable. Jik and his sister, Nora, are fed up of being left alone by their father while he drinks his troubles away at the pub. They understand that he’s mourning the death of their mother, and vow to find a way of boosting his self-esteem in the hope that he will stop boozing his life away. The answer comes in the shape of the Snapper who helps them go back in time in search of a precious family heirloom. Their adventures on the high seas brings them face to face with the famous Irish characters that have populated their family stories, and the sufferings endured by the victims of the terrible potato famine of Ireland.
This story goes beyond the exciting adventures of two children aboard an ancient ship in the tumultuous seas – it presents the loneliness of children dealing with the death of a parent, and the emotional damage caused by parental neglect. A great read for parents as well as children alike.

A spellbinder. A young adult fantasy and adventure book that tells the story of teenagers Jik and Nora who time travel on the Lady Molly boat, meeting and having adventures with major historical figures, most notably Cuchulain, lady pirate Grania, Maewyn (St. Patrick). They are bored and angry because their father Da drinks, the children's mother, his wife has died and has no time for them. Well written, the story set in modern day Dublin flows in authentic Irish lilt and dialogue, captures the imagination. The plots weave and twist with adventures, fantasy rescues, a story of bullying, Nora's love interest Sean, Nora's conflict with Bridie, the father's love interest and the strange disappearance of Nora's diary. A rollicking tale with a happy ending.
