WR: Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you write? Why?
G: I write as a therapeutic way to combat my severe Bipolar disorder. It allows my brain to escape and be in places that I have never been before.
WR: If you could be any one of your characters, who would you choose?
WR: What is your creative process like? Do you need music to write? Silence?
G: My writing is usually done at 5 – 8 hour spurts...one day I will write until I drop and the next few days won’t write a single word. Those are my marketing days and town volunteer days. I love to listen to classic rock and roll when I write. It takes me to new levels all the time. Silence may be golden, but it is not for me.
WR: What is a guilty pleasure of yours?
G: My biggest one is probably candy. Mainly black licorice.
WR: What inspires you?
G: I am motivated to see what the next weird thing I can come up with. The stories motivate me to do something completely out of the box.
WR: What is one of your worst pet peeves?
G: I hate texting! I would rather have needles in my eye than to have to text back and forth with someone. If it important enough then call me.
WR: Describe what a perfect day would be for you.
G: I would have three cups of coffee with a large omelet for breakfast. Take my laptop and sit by the ocean writing my next novel.
WR: If you could bring any fictional character to life, yours or anyone else’s, who would you pick?
G: I would have to say that I would bring Sherlock Holmes to life to help me find my darn shoes. HAHAHA. No seriously there are so many great characters out there I couldn’t choose one.
WR: If you could shape-shift, what animal would you turn into and why?
G: I would become a sea clam and live for 400 years.
WR: Where can we find you and your work around the web?
