A collage of a grisly murder, rampant adultery, questionable alibis, and heart halting truths heat up what is normally the frosty season of Chicago. Attorney James Gordon is thrust with the unenviable task of trying prove his friend's innocence in a crime that defies the definition of horrible, while also combating his own demons. Chicago has never been this warm during the Winter.
This Girl Loves Books had the pleasure of interviewing James Gordon (G.P.A).
Describe your writing style in three words…….
Intense, cinematic, and captivating
Which is your favourite chapter that you have written and why?
My favorite chapter is the final chapter of The Warmest Winter when James Gordon uncovers the motive behind the murder of Maria Livingston and her two children. It became a really intense situation.
What has been your toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been your best compliment?
My toughest criticism has been that as a poet my style doesn't fit any others nor should i take the moniker as Greatest Poet Alive. The best compliment has had my writing compared to James Patterson and the Songs of Solomon.

I write so readers can leave their lives for a bit and join me on a journey. Beyond that, I want them to understand that I'm one of the best to do it ever.
What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
Read, Write, Read, Write, Watch movies, Travel, Read, Write, and Repeat

Batman said,"I have one superpower is that I never give up." Otherwise, I'd like to be able to fly or run like The Flash.

Been there, done that
