Diet' (Oak Tree Press, 1987) and the novel 'One Bang-Up Job' (Berkley

Bio from a while ago:
For three decades, Mr. G wrote advertising and public relations for some of the biggest, smallest, and in-betweenest companies in the English-speaking world. Yes, you can blame him for far too many TV commercials, radio commercials, print ads, brochures, press releases, speeches, ghost-written articles and books, and much too much online effluvium.
"I was a flack, a hack, a scribe, a scrivener, an ink-slinger and pixel-pusher for hire," he admits. "It was good training for a writer and had the fortunate result of keeping me under a roof and in proximity with sustenance." But today, JSG is a new person. "I am a new person!" he states. Oh wait, we covered that. Okay, he's an independent author who still loves those quaint items called books.
Somewhere along the way, he wrote a number of plays, including "Partial Eclipse" (California Repertory Theater), "Secret Sex" (Basement Theater), and "White Light White Heat" (Open Fist Theater).
