Interview with Author George Cramer

FrontCover of Written Across the GenresHIIn my anthology, George Cramer has an essay titled, “Why I Hate D.E.E.R.” in which he takes the reader on a ride to see why deer are a hazard when he’s on a motorcycle road trip. George also has a novel in progress excerpt in the anthology called “A Tale of Robbers and Cops” in which two brothers have to prove their worth in order to be included in a group of criminals. They execute a prank that is not only funny but brings them a bonus. Here is an interview with George Cramer.

Julaina: Who is your favorite author?

George: Without a doubt, Bernard Cornwell. He writes historical novels in such a manner that I can see, feel, and hear his characters. I’ve read all twenty-four novels in his Richard Sharpe series about the Napoleonic Wars. When I visited Salamanca, Spain and Porto, Portugal, it was as though his protagonist, Richard Sharp, was walking the battlefields with me.

Julaina:  Why do you write?

George: I stepped into your “Polish Your Writing” class by accident about two years ago. After my first writing assignment, I’ve been unable to stop. If I allow a day to go by without writing, I’ve wasted a day.

Julaina:  Where do you like to write?

George: At the Dublin Senior Center, this is where I’m most productive. When I have trouble with my laptop, I return to my home office.

Julaina:  What are you working on now?

George: I’ve got three novels in the works, two crime stories and one romance. In addition, I try to write at least one short story a week.

Julaina: I’ve read parts of those novels and I’m looking forward to seeing them in print. Thanks, George.
