Gerry's background

Gerry was born in Tipperary, Ireland, and grew up in Belfast. In 1977 he undertook a life-changing journey through Afghanistan, Kashmir and the Himalayas. Returning home, he gave up his career in architecture to become a ‘spiritual seeker’. Wishing to do things properly, Thompson relocated to the USA, and immersed himself in the Californian hotbed of New-Ageism – doing every workshop, following every guru and consulting every psychic in sight before giving all this up and deciding to beccome a professional author, writing beautiful and humorous illustrated non-fiction books. After all, how hard can that be?

Bernie Seigal, bestselling author of 'Love, Medicine and Miracles', commenting on Gerry's book, 'Cats are from Venus, Dogs are from Mars... “I read the book to our cats and dogs. My wife and our rabbit listened too. It has helped us all!”
