I live in the country, so every season brings a new slate of activity. Between checking fences for winter and bringing in wood for the furnace, I’m working on the third story in my Dan Spalding crime series.
PDB: Do you listen to music when you work?
I do, but can’t listen to vocals. So it’s jazz from any era with some rock guitar here and there. Bebop, fusion, contemporary—as long as its instrumental.
PDB: What makes you laugh?
Not a lot. But when I do, I blame Larry David or vintage 60s/70s comedians.
PDB: What’s the best cure for a hangover?
Ice water and Karate katas.
PDB: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Wyoming. Preferably on a patch of ground surrounded by a thousand square acres of nothing. Lived there for a couple years long ago and have been working my way back ever since.
PDB: Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?
See the previous question.
PDB: What’s on the cards?
Two Dan Spalding entries are out in November: a short story and a novel- Answer Death (Dan Spalding)
PDB: Anything else?
I’ve started sharing a music-related tweet or two on Twitter, @richardprosch #spaldingsgroove.
Thanks for hosting me here, Paul!
