Meet the Author

I was born and raised on Eastern Long Island in the Westhampton area. My youth was full of adventures since we had miles of woods surrounding my home and we were near the ocean. I didn’t know until I reached college that most people didn’t have celebrities living nearby. The Hamptons are loaded with them. I considered myself an athlete and excelled in baseball. My goal was to play major league baseball, but a shoulder injury ended that dream.

I attended college at Suny Plattsburgh on an academic scholarship. My mother told people that I was an educated bum.

I moved to New York City in 1970. My degree was useless and I worked a variety of jobs including food service, bartending and recruiting models and secretaries. That was fun, but not much money. I eventually entered the business world.

My first real job was in the Consumer Products industry. I was hired by a major manufacturer of food products.They trained me to be an executive and also to believe that anything is possible. They exposed me to the broader world. After ten years my division was sold and I moved on to the car wax business in an executive position and started to travel to other countries increasing my knowledge base. Eventually I went to work for the huge conglomerate, where I became involved with trade organizations for consumer products companies. As the age of computers blossomed I became an expert in developing business for our customers and developed many trusted contacts in business. This resulted in my development of a consulting business.

My hobbies are golf, reading, writing, traveling, all sports, cooking and even a little gambling. I am an accomplished speaker and have been certificated in Behavior Modification, facilitation, and business organization. I studied business management at Hofstra university. In addition to owning a consulting business, I also started an English language school in China.

My basis philosophies are: History will repeat itself, we are products of our environment, knowledge is always the key and everyone deserves justice. They are reflected in my books. One more thing, I also believe that there are unexplainable phenomena in the world, like spirits and curses.

    Oh boy, this is a great book and I am looking forward to reading

    Oh boy, this is a great book and I am looking forward to reading the other books in the "Dubious" series. This has mystery, intrigue, and romance. After the first few chapters I didn't want to put it down. It kept you guessing. The writing and plot was so well written that as I was reading it was as if a movie was playing in my head. If you like mystery this really a must read book or you will miss out on a wonderfully written book. Thanks Gerald you hit it on the mark with this series. Wonderful work. I can't say that enough.

    A Dubious Secret - A gem
    This book is a wirlwind of action and adventure. The main characters don't seem to know where they are going but get there anyway. The plot thickens and there is a surprise ending. Great Characters that make you feel sexy.

    WORTH MORE THAN 99 CENTS

    Gerald, another great read. I would pay $10 for your books. PS, fire the proof reader. Several typos in this one.

    Exciting and Insightful

    Gerald J. Kubicki's A Dubious Secret, the second book in the thrilling Colton Banyon series, leads Banyon and his highly-competitive detective friend Loni Chen on an adventure that revisits Colt's daunting past, exposes the curse of Walter Pierce, and ushers in an even more disturbing future. Deftly written with vivid descriptions, memorable characters and fast-paced dialogue, the mystery revolves around a book of secrets and two Japanese soldiers of World War II who have returned to the Philippines as national heroes.
    The mission in this second go-around of the Colton Banyon series is to locate the original book, Mein Kampf, the controversial rant of the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. What makes the search for the work intriguing is that the owner-and the book-have been silent and concealed for nearly sixty years-until it randomly appears in the jungles off the Mindano island coast.
    As A Dubious Secret unfolds, one secret after another surfaces-including gruesome details of World War II-turning the seemingly routine adventure into a dangerous quest that would significantly affect the outcome of the future. Hot on the trail, Colt and Loni embark upon a wild goose chase from China to a ravaged Mobile, and eventually to Florida. What happens, however, when the duo is chased by unseen, paranormal forces-some of which want to keep the secret while others are adamant on unearthing the secret?
    For all romantic aficionados, Colt and Loni take time away from the chaos and excitement of the book hunt to kindle a romance that takes off during their time on the cruise ship. In addition, Kubicki provides further insight into the issues around the intrigue through the dynamic personalities of the two Japanese soldiers, Akio Suzuki and Juro Nara, and the element of the Patriot Act and Homeland Security.
    Will Colt and Loni get to the book before it falls into the wrong hands? Can they get the book into the museum, where it will be safely laid to rest?
    A Dubious Secret is exciting, insightful, and a delightful must-read that offers something for everyone!
