Who is Greg Groovie? The Secret Behind The Pseudonym

Greg Groovie's True Identity Revealed

I can't live this lie any longer.

I wanted to hide behind a pseudonym because of the graphic nature of my novel, "Wee Wee's World."  But now I'm thinking, "Why should I give a shit what people think?"

The novel is what it is regardless of what my name is.

What is my real name?

Greg Furie.

Remember the Spirit Portal Painting, "Pierre?"  I just wrote a blog post about it, but you can read the press release here:

Scott Indrisek, who at the time worked for Blouin ArtInfo,as Editor-in-Chief, wrote an article about Furie and "Pierre":

It's funny.  I still have the original painting hanging on my wall.  It's the cover of "Wee Wee's World," my novel:

I used Pierre in the novel because he fit in perfectly with Leonard's and Wee Wee's characters.

They're all killers and compliment each other's personalities.

I guess you could say that all three characters are my alter egos.

In the book, Sotheby's sells "Pierre" for a billion dollars.

In my press release, I offered "Pierre" for $54 million.

The book is only $9.99.

Which would you choose?  (Sorry, I couldn't resist).

Wow, I'm glad I got that off my chest.

- Greg Groovie (Furie)
