Author Interview

Hello. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I’m Rebecca Scarberry, @Scarberryfields on Twitter, and self-published author of Messages from Henry, Rag Doll, Jumper, and The Prince of Pigeons. I have interviewed a very good poet, G.P.A. aka The Greatest Poet Alive (@gr8estpoetalive on Twitter). I’ve enjoyed learning more about him and certain you will too.

Scarberryfields: Can you tell us a little about your nationality and where you live?

G.P.A. I’m from Chicago, specifically the Southside. I have lived here all of my life.

Scarberryfields: Have you ever been interviewed over the radio?

G.P.A  Yes. From am to fm, blogtalk radio to talkshoe and beyond are the various stations that I have been interviewed on. And I must say that I am electrifying.

Scarberryfields: Do you have a part-time or full-time job?

G.P.A.  If so, what is it? Poetry, both writing and performing, is my full and part time job, plus my love.

Scarberryfields: What are some of your hobbies?

G.P.A.  I love to play video games, walk with Scooter the Beagle, workout, read, and cook.

Scarberryfields: Does writing and/or recording benefit you in any way and if so, how?

G.P.A.  Writing Poetry is not only therapeutic, but it also fulfilling. It is always a blessing to find something that gives you purpose.

Scarberryfields: When you’re writing or recording, do you shut-off all social networks?

G.P.A.  Actually, I have everything on, especially Youtube Playlists. But when it gets down to finishing a book, I do my best to focus on the task, but I need music.

Scarberryfields: What have you found to be the best marketing tool for your works?

G.P.A.  I am a gorilla marketer. The only bad marketing is the one you have to pay a lot of money for. Online is awesome. There are so many opportunities to gain exposure that cost nothing.

Scarberryfields: Do you feel social networking, as a marketing tool, is beneficial?

G.P.A.  Social networking helps tremendously. I can reach people and touch places that I wouldn’t be able to do otherwise. And the use of search engines to improve your brand is phenomenal.

Scarberryfields: What is the last work you completed?

G.P.A.  Revenge of the Orgasm is my latest work, and when I say that it is scintillating, I might be understating that fact. Really outdid myself with this poetic masterpiece.

Scarberryfields: Where can people go to listen or read your works?

G.P.A.  Website:, YouTube: hchise22, Reverbnation: greatestpoetalive, and Facebook: G.P.A.(Greatest Poet Alive)
