~~~AUTHOR INTERVIEW #5~~~
Geri: Have you had the pleasure of discussing any of your books with a fan?
Gary: I am ready and waiting for that. lol. But I haven't been rewarded to see reviewers responses via posts. Speaking of speaking 'verbally', I enjoyed my first verbal interview not too long ago with Blog Radio host Jennifer Chase, who is also an award winning crime author.

and keep my storytelling evolving. I like to mix genres, and because of that,
I strive to make each new novel different, and stand alone from the previous

author Dean Koontz
Geri: What would you consider to be the highlight of your writing career?
Gary: I would say being included in a robot anthology called 'Thank you, Death
Robot', a collection of short stories. I have a great love for androids and
having my short story 'Growing Pains' included in this was exciting.
Geri: It has been an honor and a Great Pleasure to work with you over the years. Your
talent is indeed Amazing. Wishing you much success. Thank you for your time.
