Most of his adult life, Gerald Warfield lived in New York City, on the upper west side and in Chelsea. His first job was at the Library and Museum of the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. He marched in the first Gay Pride Parade in 1970. After leaving music, he supported himself writing how-to books in finance, and textbooks in music; his formal education was in music theory and composition (UNT and Princeton). He’s an old man now and lives in a small Texas town where he’s very out of place. He was accepted into and survived the Odyssey Writers’ Workshop in 2010. That’s where he really learned to write.
