Welcome to the Writers & Illustrators of the Future Podcast, dedicated to aspiring writers and artists. It is not just a podcast on writing. Top professionals share tips to writing a book and their secrets to success in all aspects of the business.
Our guest has become a sensation within our offices with his Origin Mystery Series. Writing under a pseudonym, Gerry and his wife and partner Anne are better known in the publishing world as A.G. Riddle. Pretty clever!
He released his first novel, The Atlantis Gene, in March of 2013. It is the first book in The Origin Mystery trilogy. His fourth novel, Departure, follows the survivors of a flight that takes off in the present and crash-lands in a changed world.
Gerry was born and raised in a small town in North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.
Now he is an international bestselling author. Getting to write sci-fi is his real passion.

- How he got started with writing science fiction.
- How Gerry went from college to create an internet company, and then to become a bestselling independent author—in what seemed like meteoric success.
- Is a writer’s work worth it?
- Tips when writing a book.
