Skin Of My Teeth

After my recent hospital stay during the early months of 2023. I became unglued. Another tight bout with diverticulitis, heart concerns, the jarring loss of a dear friend, and more. I needed to open these wounds and spill out content. The ER was a nightmare, my stay in the hospital was grueling and my imagination and insanity had overtaken me. From my obsession with my IV pole, the fear of IV removal, starved madness from the abstinence of food, and the fitting farewell to a dear friend. It is all captured here in its gritty and grimy realism.

Jolly Octopus

Jolly Octopus is a madcap, and dark humerus romp through sea-based tales. At the core, a tainted beach that harbors more than just sand and waves. A collection of random, or maybe not so random jaunts spun from the likes of a seedy Captain, a sneaky tiki owner, a boy and his dog, a retire-ready Detective, and an assortment of other rich characters, both in wealth and mind.


Gehlert delivers another fantastic read! His imagination grabs you in a headlock that won’t let go until the startlingly impressive end.

Sacrificial Sons is a sinister, fast-paced and mesmerizing story that grips the reader and won’t let go.
