In this TedX Talk Ryan Gattis speaks about how a Gang Lord changed his writing career!
From the TedX description on the channel:
“When a gang lord told novelist Ryan Gattis to cut to the chase, he did. Surprising to the Chapman University professor was that the command was also a gift that released his creativity and helped guide him to the completion of his acclaimed novel about the Los Angeles riots of 1992, All Involved: A Novel of the 1992 L.A. Riots.”
Hope this helps you?
