**INTERVIEW with Author W.G. GRIFFITHS**
Geri: What inspires you the most to write?
W.G. Griffiths: That's like asking me what inspires me to eat and breathe. Writing is how I get the stories
out of my mind. If I don't write, it becomes like rush hour on the Long Island Expressway.
Geri: Who is your favorite author?
W.G. Griffiths: Probably Crichton
Geri: Do you have current work in progress?
W.G. Griffiths: Yes! I'm currently doing the authorized bio of hall of fame jockey, Angel Cordero Jr.
What an amazing life of winning through adversity.
Geri: Did you enjoy reading as a child?
W.G. Griffiths: Yes, but selectively. There was nothing I loved more than comics for their imagination,
and pace. I was too bouncing off the walls to read anything that wasn't fantastic.
Huckleberry Finn was fantastic.
Geri: If you were to write in a different genre, what would it be?
W.G. Griffiths: As it is, I have written: Mystery, Supernatural, Action, Adventure, Young Adult,
Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Non-fiction Drama, Tragedy, and working
on a bio. So, I guess whatever story excites me is the one I want to write.
Geri: Thank you very much for your time. I wish you much success in your journey of
W.G. Griffiths: You're welcome.
