BACKGROUND

 

David Pandolfe is the author of the Streetlights Like Fireworks and Jump When Ready series. Reading his books, you’ll soon learn that he likes writing stories about psychics, ghosts, unusual settings and characters who approach adventure with a sense of humor. He’s not sure where the ghost obsession came from but he figured he might as well roll with it.

Before becoming a writer, David did a few other things. For example, he was once a bartender in Seattle, a singer/songwriter in a Los Angeles rock band and a college writing teacher in Richmond (not all at the same time, of course). These days, he lives near Richmond, Virginia, with his wife, two kids and a dog who’s terrified of thunder. Not the best situation for their dog since it thunders from spring until fall in Richmond.

 

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Thank You!

Some of you might remember this ever so impressive holiday banner image I created last year at this time. It seems funny to think that, just one year ago, I just had only the three books out. It’s definitely been an exciting and productive year. 2015 brought The Dragonfly Season (Streetlights Like Fireworks #2) and Distance (Streetlights Like Fireworks #3) and it was really exciting to see both of those books land in the Hot New Release and Best Rated categories on Amazon when they first came out. Actually, both of them stayed in the Best Rated categories for quite some time (thank you, readers, for posting reviews!).

Jack and Lauren’s Infinite Playlist

One of the best things about being a writer is hearing from readers who’ve just discovered your books.  It’s a great way to gain new perspectives on the worlds and characters you created and sometimes reminds you of aspects you may not have thought of in a while. This happened to me the other day when someone got in touch after reading Streetlights Like Fireworks. Mainly, she just wanted to tell me how much she enjoyed the book and that she was recommending it to others but she also went on to ask  if I’d ever considered creating a playlist. Her question reminded just how infused that book is with music. Music is, after all, at the heart of Jack’s personal journey and the catalyst launching the actual journey he and Lauren share as they travel together across the country. A playlist seemed like a really great idea. So, here’s the long overdue Jack and Lauren’s Infinite Playlist. Okay, maybe it’s not infinite but it keeps growing (and I wanted to borrow that movie title). By the way, the list is annotated so you can find out where each song fits in by reading the notes beneath each song title. I hope you like what you hear and I’d love to hear from you regarding whether you imagined Jack and Lauren’s soundtrack this way or if you imagine any other songs being included.

NaNoWriMo (finally, sort of)

A year ago, I reported how it feels like every time NaNoWriMo comes around I’m in the editing phase. That was true, for some weird reason, a few years running. I know what you’re thinking – that it was just an excuse and I could have stopped editing and dashed off a new 50,000 word manuscript that month before returning to my work in progress. Actually, you might be right and that did occur to me as a way to participate. But I’ve also figured in the past that it probably made more sense to get the new book done and out there as soon as possible, especially since I didn’t have that many, even if it meant missing out on all the fun.
