Geri Newell Gillen

Bio: Geri Newell Gillen was born in Ottawa. She grew up in Montréal, on a steady diet of Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden. She was educated in Montréal and held numerous jobs which included Chim-panzee babysitter, program typist for the Festival international du film en 16 mm, and McGill Library shelf-stacker. She finally settled on a career as a Research Technologist for a large manufacturing firm. Following early retirement, she appeased her aspiration of writing by chronicling 200 years of Newell Family History. In researching and writing these genealogical stories, and uncovering a multitude of mysteries along the way, she was drawn to writing a fictional mystery. Combining her love of poker and her quarter-century marriage to an amusing pub-loving Glaswegian, 'Quite Perfectly Dead' was born.
