INTERVIEW WITH RICH LEDER

What are you working on next?

I'm finishing another standalone called "Let There Be Linda." It's a dark comedy about two estranged brothers living in the San Fernando Valley who bring their dead mother back to life to clean up the mess they've made of things. As you're already surmising, that can't be a good idea--Monty Python meets Quentin Tarantino. When that novel is done, I'll write the third book in the "McCall & Company" series. All I can tell you about that one is Kate and her eccentric crew are in it up to their necks in lawyers and love and bars and bookies. Oh yeah, and the corporate killer who murdered Kate's father is playing a deadly game of cat and mouse. Kate's the mouse. After that, another standalone, and then another McCall. Shampoo, rinse, repeat.

Who are your favorite authors?

Oh man. So many. Too many. Richard Ford. John Irving. Donald Westlake. Phillip Roth. Sue Grafton. Carl Hiaasen. Janet Evanovich. John D. MacDonald. Edgar Allan Poe. Elmore Leonard. Raymond Chandler. Lawrence Block. Agatha Christie. James Elroy. Robert B. Parker...

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?

I have so many books to write and read, so many new friends to meet, so much great food to eat, so many movies to see, so many places to go, so many mysteries to unwind, so many corners to turn, so many lessons to learn, an awesome wife and three children to enjoy and love and cherish…and the clock is ticking, brothers and sisters. I don't want to miss a moment. For me, every minute of every day is a chance to create something special or make someone laugh out loud or laugh out loud myself or do those things all at the same time. keep reading...
