In the wee hours of an insomnia-induced morning on Saturday, July 7, 2012, I put a request out for an impromptu, live author-interview on twitter. GPA, a seminal poet from Chicago, saw the tweet and responded. Within the hour, I set up a private chat room so that we could do a remote interview in real-time.

Greatest Poet Alive, author of The Mind of a Poetic Unsub
The Mind of a Poetic Unsub is an autobiographical journey into the life of controversial poet, G.P.A.. In this poetry collection, the poems tell stories that beg reading. At the same, the Greatest Poet Alive flexes bulging poetic muscles by writing in various and ignored poetic forms such as cinquain, villanelle, sestina and haiku. And of course, G.P.A’s pen flows with passion with the stories of love he is known for. The Mind of a Poetic Unsub is complete book of poetry that touches everyone somewhere.
