Your daily Ralph- Interview with Author David White
Ralph’s Rant’s does
interviews speaks to David White
RA: Hello David, and welcome to Ralph’s Rants. David let’s
get right to it, you have been toiling behind the scenes for a few years is
DW: Somewhat. I have done a lot of editing and proofing for
Pro Se as well as Moonstone.
RA: Now your first published work that I was aware of was a
Doc Panic story in Pro Se presents. Then what seemed like a long time passed,
and now you’ve had a flurry of new stories pop up. Care to talk to us about
them? What they are? Who they are with? What they are about?
DW: Well most of the stuff I have is with Pro Se press, but
there was my Fight Card story, and also an Avenger story for Moonstone. I had
written and submitted a pretty good amount of stuff before finally getting Doc
RA: So tell us a little about you’re behind the scenes work.
You’re mostly known as an editor. What have you worked on over the years?
DW: Wow! There has been a ton, at one point I was editing at
least four or five stories a month it seemed, but I have since slowed down, I
still edit a little, but when I have the time, I try to write.
RA: As an editor, what was your proudest achievement?
DW: Hmmm, well for me it was getting to work on Barry
Reese’s stuff, as I have always been a big Rook fan. After that I would say
Chuck Miller’s creation The Black Centipede
RA: Now let me ask you the same question but as a writer?
DW: For me it was my Fight Card, because I based the main
character after my pops, who I lost a few years back.
RA: As a writer, what is your greatest inspiration?
DW: Honestly for me, it is the community itself. I have met
not only some awesome talent, but just down right great people that I am proud
to be involved with.
RA; What made you enjoy the type of writing you do? What did
you discover that made you say ‘This is for me’?
DW: Well actually Joe Gentile from Moonstone got me started
on pulp, and I just fell in love with it.
RA: Who are your favorite New Pulp writers?
DW: Hmmm, man tough one, there are just so many I enjoy. If
I had to say a few, Barry Reese, Chuck Miller, and Rick Nichols are up there
right now, but there is also so much I have no read yet, so hard to say, but
for now, that will do.
RA: David White has had several releases in the last few
weeks alone, including ‘The Bridgeport Brawler’, ‘Astigmatism’ and now ‘Magee’.
Did I miss any of them?
DW: I also have a story in Tall Pulp from pro Se that was
RA: What was your
favorite of the bunch, and why?
DW: Well while I was proud of my Fight Card, I really
enjoyed creating MaGee, so he gets the nod.
RA: What does the future hold for David White, writer
DW: Hahahahaha, no I don’t ever see myself in the area. I
enjoy writing, but the time to just pump stuff out is just not there. Maybe
once I retire I will pump more out.
RA: All right, thank you David, I appreciate you coming
along for the ride and playing. We’ll all be looking for whatever you have
coming up next. It was a pleasure talking to you tonight.
