Michael Di Gesu. Nuff Said.
Here is my promised interview with Michael Di Gesu , talented interior designer, writer, illustrator, former model, and blogger extraordinaire. Right now he's celebrating the awesome news that his newest novel, The Blinded Gardener , made it through the first round of the American Breakthrough Novel Award! (Here's an excellent description of ABNA at erica & christy's blog). Congratulations, Michael. I'm sure he's almost as excited about that as he is about winning my Junk in a Box competition. ;) The Interview: 1.
