Gerianne Beatrice Bullen (nee: Hull and formerly: Van Vugt) was born in 1959, in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada. At the age of eleven, she moved to the province of Ontario, and lived in various cities for some nineteen years. During this time she attended Sheridan College, in Oakville and received her Diploma in Human Services Administration. In 1986, she attended George Brown College, in Toronto, where she graduated with honours from its Human Services Management Program.
In 1989, she moved to Pasadena, Newfoundland. There Gerianne revived her literary interest, when she took on the position of Editor of Venture Visions - a monthly economic newsletter which was published by a local business development centre - The (former) Venture Centre, now Pardy's Venture Centre.
Gerianne decided to embark into new territory in 1997, by independently publishing her first two books. Early that year Is That Wheelchair Really Dead?... Gerianne's Humorous (and Useful) Little Booklet on Creative Wheelchair Repairs was released. This publication combined her literary talent with her firsthand knowledge of being a wheelchair user and brought you her personal experiences with what she refers to as "creative/non-conventional wheelchair repairs."
In October of that same year, Gerianne touched the hearts of many with her emotional book of original poetry and personal revelations in A Little Insight. In Gerianne's own words "Writing A Little Insight was like exposing the deepest recesses of my soul, for all the world to see. Doing so was as essential to me as breathing, yet if I stopped to think about just how much I was revealing about myself... at times it was terrifying!"
In addition, Gerianne's poetry has also been published in New York, Texas and Newfoundland and of course many of her articles can be found in back issues of Venture Visions.
Gerianne's interests encompass music, art, computers, and travelling. Writing is, of course, a great passion for her.
Gerianne now resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada - a city that she loves immensely. "From my very first visit, Halifax grabbed on to my heart and wouldn't let go. I wish I was born here. It truly feels right for me. I think of it as home. I'm thrilled to finally be living here!"
