Today’s “Author Talk” with David Saperstein… author of Green Devil: The Book of Belial…

David Saperstein, author

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing fiction, novels, screenplays and librettos for thirty-seven years. Prior to that, I wrote lyrics. And prior to that, documentary, corporate, industrial, training and propaganda films and live shows.

What genre are your books?

No specific genre. I decided that I did not want to write the same book over and over, as many genre authors do.   I write what interests me. The range has gone from science fiction to fantasy to police procedural to Christmas stories… My screenplays have even wider range of subject matter and include the above plus comedy, drama, politics, religion… My TV shows have spanned sports, ballet, rodeo, children’s episodic series… My documentary subjects, from steel mills to cattle ranches to coal mines to the White House and internationally from Sweden to Japan and beyond…

What I do is tell stories in whatever genre or medium best relates them.

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

I’ve written fifteen novels. Eleven have been published. No favorites. Different genres. That’s like asking which of your children do you like the best.

They each took a year or more to birth. They each brought me pleasure and satisfaction in their own way. My joy is in the day that I know they are finished.
