Author Interview - David Ricciardi

Author I draw inspiration from: Tom Clancy (RIP). His combination of character development and technological detail created a genre, plus he could twist together seven or eight subplots and it never felt forced.

Favorite place to read a book: In front of a fire with nasty weather outside.

Book character I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with: Jack Reacher. He wouldn't speak unless he had something to say.

The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: Not a specific moment for me, but when I would sacrifice a few hours of sleep to keep reading a novel, I used to think, "Wouldn't it be great to entertain someone like that?"

Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook: Depends. I'm really impatient, so I buy a lot of hardbacks because I want to read them immediately, but a dog-eared, mass market paperback is like an old friend to me.

The last book I read: Mark Greaney's Agent in Place. Fantastic.

Pen & paper or computer: Computer for composition and editing. Paper for a final read throughs to see what I screwed up (I use a LOT of paper).

Book character I think I’d be best friends with: Harry Bosch. He's deeply flawed, so we'd have a lot in common.

If I wasn’t an author, I’d be a: Dog. Probably with a tennis ball in my mouth.

Favorite decade in fashion history: The 1840s. That's when Google says khakis were invented.

Place I’d most like to travel: Just about any mountain chain

My signature drink: Macallan scotch with a single ice cube for the dark days or Fat Tire IPA in the summer

Favorite artist: Either Vincent Van Gogh or the Allman Brothers

Number one on my bucket list: Dive the Galapagos Islands with my family

Anything else you'd like to add: I'm thankful for the amazing amount of support I've found among the literary community: readers, other authors, technical advisors, and of course, the absolutely fabulous reviewers and interviewers. Many people have volunteered their time and assistance to help make Warning Light a reality. We're at a point where society seems to value divisiveness and outrage, but it's been great to see people come together to support something positive, and I'm incredibly grateful for it. Thanks!
