About Gerald Weaver

Gerald was born in Western Pennsylvania, where he grew up with three sisters and no brothers. His father was a lawyer and his mother worked until he was five and then was a homemaker. Gerald spoke Sicilian dialect with his grandmother who was also his nanny until he was five. Gerald attended Yale University and Catholic University School of Law. He has done quite a bit of informal writing through most of his life. He has worked as a lawyer, a stay-at-home-parent, a lobbyist, a teacher of Latin and English, a campaign manager, a real estate developer, a Chief of Staff on Capitol Hill, and now purchases and sells Chinese antiquities. At Yale, he studied literature under Harold Bloom and fiction writing under Gordon Lish.

The First First Gentleman is mostly drawn from Gerald’s thirteen years in national politics and on Capitol Hill, and from a lifetime of observing national politics from a front row seat. Gerald still has many friends on Capitol Hill and in government, including a US Senator and a Presidential appointee. The classic Washington book is non-fiction, and it is met in DC by people who go to the bookstore and open it to the index to see if they or anyone they know are in it. The First First Gentleman is obviously fiction, and there is no index. But if it had one, people might do the same thing. It is a factually accurate political thriller that punctures the cultural orthodoxy, and a love story that ends with a woman in the White House.

The First First Gentleman is Gerald Weaver’s second novel.

The videos (below, left) explain the sad but cherished involvement of award-winning journalist, Marie Colvin, in every aspect of Gospel Prism, Gerald Weaver's first novel.

Gerald's experience of reading challenging literature in order to survive a dark place served as a provocation for this sensitive, atmospheric, dreamlike, compassionate, unpredictable and wise debut novel which brings into focus the relationship between literature, language, truth and religious faith.

'The First First Gentleman' is an epic love story about the obstacles overcome by Melinda Sherman, a physically and emotionally wounded war hero who falls in love with a worldly political operative who manages her campaign for President of the United States.

Their love is their greatest political asset. She speaks out in a stunning way that punctures the cultural orthodoxy and feeds the public's hunger for a different political leader, while dark forces seek to undo her. This novel is a healing love story, a political thriller, a starkly honest social commentary, and an homage to Charles Dickens.
