My guest author today is G.P.A.!

G.P.A. was born, raised, and lives in Chicago, specifically its Southside. He has written three books of Poetry (The Confessional Heart of a Man, The Book of 24 Orgasms, and The Mind of a Poetic Unsub)  and released a cd of Poetry and music entitled The G.P.A. Experience. He has participated in several anthologies of various themes and is on tour promoting his work. Currently, he is the Moth Storytelling Champion and will compete for the Grand Championship in 2013


AM: If there was anything else you could do (other than writing) what would that be?

GPA: If i were not an author and Poet, i would be lost

How did you decide on your book's genre?

Poetry is what i was born to do.

What is/are your favorite genre(s)?
my favorite genres are Poetry and Fiction

Are you currently reading anything?
I am currently reading Odd Apocalypse by Dean Koontz.

Who, or what, is the driving force that keeps you going?
The thing that keeps me writing is that I want to be the best, greatest Poet ever.

How do you balance your personal life with your writing career?
My writing career is my personal life. Ask anyone; they will tell you that G.P.A. writes continuously and does not sleep. A fellow Poet friend of mine said,"G.P.A., you eat, drink,s leep, and bleep this stuff."

Do you have any upcoming events or book promotions?
May 19,2013, i shock the world. Again.

Where can people find you and your work on the web?


  1. Nice interview. Good luck in the championships.

  2. Well done, G.P.A., for being a poet on fire and inspired to be a poet/author, no matter what in the word! I, too, like Sheila Deeth above, wish you every success in standing victorious in your championships! You have already won, for you are a champion in your own mind...first!

    And well done, Amy Manemann, for providing a Safe Place for artists to come and shine the light of their creativity! I wish you much success in your writing career.
