Gerald Statler, a genealogist enthusiast based out of Ferndale, New York, has completed their new book “Freddie”: a heart-wrenching story about a boy whose very birth was a miracle, and whose life is a series of secrets and shame that culminates in a wild attempt at an establishment of an identity that satisfies the main character, Freddie Waters, and not just his family.

“If you would like to know about me, then you must get to know my main character,” Gerald Statler admitted when asked to explain his connection this work. “He was my go-to when times got tough. This story changes many times as he grew and as I grew as a person. He helped me understand the people around me as well.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Gerald Statler’s moving tale captures the difficulties of being in a family that fails to see Freddie as he is and not as they want him to be. The prose throughout is lyrical and poetic, telling the story through a series of beautiful sentences that aim to keep readers turning the pages to learn more about Freddie and his struggles.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “Freddie” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
