About the Book:
Exclusive Interview with the Author!
1) How did you get the idea for the book?
Working in the music business I was always finding myself in crazy situations with very interesting characters. As I would relate these stories everyone would say,”You should write a book”. I finally did and as one reviewer said “The wit of Kinky Friedman, the grit of Elmore Leonard and a bit of John Grisham.”
2) Let’s talk about your main character, Billy Sunday. How did you think him up and is there any of you in him?
Most people who know me believe I am Billy Sunday in the novel. All I can say about that is so far no one has ever seen Billy and I in the same room.
3) Do you listen to music while you write? If yes, what do you like to listen to?For as long as I can remember my life has revolved around music. I have about 5,000 songs on my iPod and still go to about 25+ concerts a year. There are many references to different musical artists in the book. My website also has the various songs featured in Drown. The artists whom I most enjoy are Bob Dylan, James McMurtry, The Black Crowes, Eric Lindell, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, David Gray and Furthur.
4) What do you do in your spare time when you’re not writing?Surf. If there are no waves then I ride motorcycles while thinking about surfing.
5) What’s up next for you?Working on the final edit of “Local Talent”. Boston criminal defense attorney Aidan Glimmertwin is kidnapped after his client, gang member Chill Martin is acquitted of murdering a Boston Police officer. The search for Aidan reveals a tangled web of corruption in Boston between organized crime, the church and the judiciary.
