Media Bio

Gerri Lewis is an award-winning feature writer, former stringer and columnist who began her career getting her fingers smudged on newsprint at the Ridgefield Press and its syndicated newspapers. She wrote the Food and Drink Column interviewing many great cooks and chefs, always asking all the “dumb questions that no-one else would.” She also wrote a weekly Around Town column about her community and a Home Matters column having “anything and everything to do with the home.” During her years at the newspaper, she wrote many obituaries, especially sensitive ones, and has since become a go to obit writer in her community and beyond. Later, she turned to magazines with regularly appearing cover features. Her HOW WE MET column became popular staple for Ridgefield Magazine and with over 1600 published features, news stories and obituaries under her belt, she continues to write for 068 Magazine, focusing on Connecticut towns with the 068 zip code. Her accolades include numerous feature-writing awards from the New England Press Association and the Society of Professional Journalists, among others. She lives with her husband in Ridgefield, Connecticut, the setting for her debut novel.
