Scribe: What authors would you like to have coffee or a beer with and which beverage?
JG: Ouzo with Homer. Brunello with Dante. Earl Grey tea with Shakespeare.
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
JG: Having only one book would make me insane.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
JG: There are many classes offered to help me improve my craft.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
JG: I’m working on a modern literary thriller about an Italian-American in New York who runs afoul of the Russian mob. I hope you won’t be able to put it down.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
JG: You can read the first chapter of Birds of Passage and sign up for my blog on my website.
