Pete Brandvold (aka as MEAN PETE) is with us today to give us his FRIDAY FIVE! Take it away, Pete!
1. Most exciting day of your life was???
I'll echo Frank Roderus and say the day I held my first book in my hands. I remember getting the first two copies before the rest of my contract copies came from Berkley, and my hands were sweating as I opened the package. If a fella can swoon, Mean Pete swooned when he held that book in his hands. Probably still the best cover on any book of mine.
2. My favorite food is???
If I can't claim beer as a food, then it has to be cheeseburgers and fries.
3. My favorite car I ever owned was???
'73 Chevy Silverado. Lime green with lots of chrome. Best truck I ever owned. Had it in high school, and if that bench seat could talk, I'd have to shoot it! Hah!
4. Something you may not know about me is that I...???
I love the old silent movies. And my favorite actor in them is Lon Chaney. I have most of his--those that have survived, that is--on DVD.
5. The best book I ever read is...???
MOBY DICK. A close second: THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO.
