About Me

Hi. I’m Jerry Gidner. I am, among other things, a writer, and you’ve stumbled upon my webpage. I hope you like it. While you are here, you can order my ABC book, If You Were an Aardvark: An ABC Book Starring Mammals. You can read my poems and short stories (not all kid friendly). And you can order a Wedding Story, an original short story written just for you for your wedding or other important life event. It will be a beautiful keepsake that you can treasure forever!

So who am I? I am a writer, a punster, a husband, a father, a lover of animals, and a fan of renewable energy. I am member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. I am a zoologist and a lawyer.

I live to make people laugh.

At various times in my life, I have been adventurous. I have been rock climbing, rappelling, zip lining, parasailing, jet skiing, wind surfing, skydiving, tubing, skiing, alpine sliding, spelunking, white water rafting, motorcycling and hot air ballooning. I have traveled to England, Scotland, Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, Canada, India, Thailand, South Korea, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Japan, and Peru. I have been to 49 of the 50 states, and I live in Virginia, with my wife, daughters, and pets.

Welcome to my world. Make yourself at home.
