Interviewer: What’s the most despicable thing you have experienced?
Greg: (laughs) That’s easy!
Interviewer: What’s happened?
Greg: Someone using your own advice against you! Long time ago, when my literary
agent was having trouble selling first book, “The Woodstock Bridge.” I called a “published” writer-friend and was moaning about this and he said, “Do you have your manuscript around?” I said, “Sure.” He says, “Go look on page 158 and read the last line.” So I go get it. I know he has the manuscript but how does he know what’s on that page?
Interviewer: What did the line say?
Greg: (look of disgust on my face). To quote myself: “Why does something have to be approved of by others to be a success? Maybe you did something because it felt good to do it.” How despicable!
