Gerard Horning has completed his new book “Jersey City to Escobar’s Colombia”: a gripping and potent work that shares the author’s firsthand experiences with readers.

Author Gerard Horning writes, “Dysfunction was a way of life for us in downtown Jersey City. No matter which way you turned, things never seemed to go right. You were punished for being curious and are called a baboon if you were inventive. In the sixties, the nuns and the lay teachers would immediately let you know who was boss. In their mind, it was either their way or the clothing room. The clothing room was where you could find all the tools for punishments—paddles, straps, cat o’ nine tails, shillelaghs. The boys had to drop our pants, and the girls had to lift their uniform skirts to get their behind hit till they fell to the floor.”

Published by Page Publishing, Gerard Horning’s compelling work also takes readers through the author’s life in his young adulthood, beginning in the early nineties. His first trip to Colombia was during the height of the drug wars. He met a man who brought him in to seduce beautiful women to get information so he could use the moto girls to kill the dealers and lords.

Readers who wish to experience this original work can purchase “Jersey City to Escobar’s Colombia” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
