Books in Print

A Word from Gerald Hausman
"As a storyteller I have always believed that the written word comes from the oral tradition. Therefore, my narrators are always talkers. When I write for adults or children, I concentrate on the rhythm of the words, the flow, the pattern, the beauty of sentences. Yes, I have written books of poetry. And yes, I still do.
"As a teacher in the classroom for over 18 years I have witnessed the power of the spoken word and how, when this becomes the written word, students only lose interest in a story when the narrator doesn't sound like someone they know, or perhaps someone they might want to know. Keeping it real is an understatement.
"As an editor I have always been passionate, putting in as many years helping others get their manuscripts into print as writing books for myself. I have worked with many Native American, West Indian and European authors. Many and I would hope through my efforts have gone on to successful writing careers. A number of writers I mentored have produced books that have sold widely. Some of these books are still in print after twenty years.
"As a writer I love what I do. At the age of sixty, and with some sixty of books written I am still very much in love with writing. I dance when a new book comes out. I don't believe I will ever lose sight of the fact that writing like life is a joyous expression, a gift that makes each day a transcendent treasure, freshly opened to the eye and ear."
