Scribe: Welcome, writer! Tell us — what do you write?
Joe Giordano: Historical Fiction, Contemporary Thrillers, Short Stories.
Scribe: If you could choose one author to blurb your book, who would it be, and what would you want it to say?
JG: David Baldacci: The Art of Revenge is a riveting, action-packed, suspenseful and at times terrifying chase around the world that will have gritty thriller lovers salivating for more – a must read for those who like hanging on the edge of the cliff by only their fingers.
Scribe: You have one book you’re allowed to push onto all of your friends, and they’re forced to read it to remain your friend — which one would you choose?
JG: Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry – still my favorite read.
Scribe: Tell us your WLT story.
JG: I’ve taken a number of great classes from WLT and recommend aspiring and experienced writers to take any courses that fit their needs.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
JG: A major publisher, a movie deal, and TV interviews (in my dreams).
Scribe: Here at the WLT, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one book that has come out within the past few years that you couldn’t put down? (Bonus points if the book is Texas related!)
JG: I enjoyed The Searcher by Tana French.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!

My stories have appeared in more than one hundred magazines including The Saturday Evening Post, Shenandoah, and my short story collection, Stories and Places I Remember. My novels include, Birds of Passage— an Italian Immigrant Coming of Age Story– Appointment with ISIL, Drone Strike, and the Anthony Provati thriller series, and coming in June 2022, The Art of Revenge.
