Novel transcript reading performed by actor Jason Martorino

Get to know writer Carl David:

1. What is your novel about?

An idyllic American family of the 1960’s who endures the suicide of one of their children and how they struggle on their difficult journey back to life.

2. Why should this novel be read by people?

Because it will show how people can survive tragedy against all odds when darkness prevails. It will inspire.

3. How would you describe this novel in two words?

Inspirational, heartfelt

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

Field Of Dreams

5. How long have you been working on this novel?

Decades, at times it was too painful and I’d need to distance myself from it. But I never gave up; everything in its own time. If it is worth doing, it is worth doing right.

6. Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

No.

7. What motivated you to write this novel?

I needed to reach out and do something with my darkest days to benefit others. Having lived through such a horrific trauma (my brother’s suicide) I felt this mission path develop that I needed to follow. If I didn’t pursue it, then I would have wasted an opportunity to pay it forward. I knew it would help others who have walked a similar path and as well possibly encourage someone on that edge of desperation to realize that they are not alone, that there is help for them and that they are loved and then choose to live, not die.

8. What artist would you love to have dinner with?

Vincent Van Gogh; just to feel his energy. His work was genius and so emotionally charged, you can’t walk away from it with being affected by it.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

My Family, Art Dealing, Photography, Writing & Playing Music, Flying, Healing, Animals, Vivid sunsets and life in general.

10. What influenced you to enter the Novel Festival?

Thought it a good way to expand the scope of my work. A lost opportunity is just that……

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Never quit. There will be times when the emotional pressure or resistance is overwhelming. Take a break and then come back to it with a fresh eye,. If what you have to say is important to you, then stay with it regardless of the rejections you encounter. Those who dismiss you are missing an opportunity. There will be someone who will “see” your wok and the potential.

Family and inner strength that can come from adversity. Our baby boy Brayden is a real warrior and our hero for overcoming his seizure disorder (known as Infantile Spasms) and we see how he fights every single day to continue his development despite his delays.

2) How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?

I would like people to feel both the heartbreak of parents when they first find out their child has special needs, which then transforms into the embracing of everything that comes our way, knowing it will be okay because we are there for our son and will do everything we can to help him.

My second book, Mobile Poems, contains 3 years worth of poetry that I wrote while commuting to and from New York City by train. When you ride the Long Island Rail Road as much as I did, you find yourself needing to do something productive to pass the time.

7) What is your passion in life?

My passion in life is my family, first and foremost. I also love to write, listen to music, and am a diehard New York Mets fan. Yes, the Mets, because I’m a tortured artist, of course 🙂
