Author Interview – Dylan Madrid

at 3:00 AM

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I would love to live in Europe, specifically in Belgium or on the Italian or French Rivera. I also love the country of Greece. I was very fortunate to live there for a year and loved every second of it.
My favorite American city is Chicago. It’s my urban muse and shows up in almost everything I write. It’s such an incredible literary landscape. There’s something very poetic about it. I lived there over a decade ago and I feel like I’ve been trying to get back there ever since.
If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone dead or alive, who would you ask?
I would invite five people: Jessica Lange, Tennessee Williams, Oscar Wilde, Mary Wollstonecraft, and my grandmother. After dinner entertainment would be provided by the girl group The Shangri-Las.
What movie do you love to watch?
I was having a really bad day years ago so I decided to go to the local art house movie theatre alone. I saw Cinema Paradiso that day and I’ve never been the same since. That film touched my soul and hasn’t let go. It is the epitome of love.
I’m also a big fan of classic film noir. I think the influence of it is apparent in my work.
How do you spend your time when you are not writing?
When I’m not writing or teaching, I’m often traveling to literary festivals and writing conferences to talk about my work, meet readers, and instruct writing workshops. For fun I love watching classic movies. I’m a big fan of film noir. I also love playing board games, reading a good book, or just spending time with my family and friends.
What marketing works for you?
In addition to social media, most of my work is marketed by word of mouth. Someone discovers something I’ve written and they enjoy it and then tell others about it. I’m always amazed when I meet my readers and they tell me great stories about how they stumbled upon my books.
