Featured Interview With Bobby Nash
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I’m Bobby Nash. I write novels, comic books, short stories, graphic novels, and the odd screenplay or two. I have been writing professionally since 1992, but really got busy around 2001 then busier after my first novel premiered in 2005. I am born and raised in Georgia, starting in Atlanta and moving steadily farther out from the city as I got older. I keep saying one day I’ll move to try living somewhere else, but I’ve not made the leap yet. No pets, but I have had dogs in the past.

At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I started reading as a kid and fell in love with comic books and paperback novels and picture books. as a teenager. I wanted to be a comic book artist, but my artistic skills are somewhat lacking. I started writing stories so I would have something to draw. Eventually, that morphed into me writing for other artists and eventually being hired to write by publishers. Then, one day I declared that I was going to write a novel. It’s been full speed ahead since then.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
This could be a mighty long list. authors whose work I enjoy and who inspire me include Michael Connelly, Alex Kava, Beau Smith, Jonathan Maberry, Gail Simone, John Hartness, Ed Brubaker, and so many more. I like to read thrillers, crime, suspense, sci fi, action, adventure, pulp, generally whatever strikes my fancy at the moment.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My most recent release is the SHERLOCK HOLMES/DOMINO LADY trade paperback collection published by Moonstone Books. Nancy Holder and I have been writing stories with Domino Lady and an elder Holmes teaming up and I was honored to add a brand new story to this collection. I love writing Domino Lady. She’s one of my favorite characters. I’ve resisted writing Sherlock Holmes in prose because I wasn’t sure I was the right writer for Holmes stories. Teaming him up with Domino Lady for an adventure helped to allay my fears a bit. Sherlock Holmes is one of those great characters that everyone knows. Writing him was a a daunting task.
This new trade paperback collection contains a brand new Domino Lady comic story, a brand new Holmes/Domino illustrated prose story by Bobby Nash, a Holmes/Domino Lady prose story by Nancy Holder with NEW illustrations, reprints Sherlock Holmes/Domino Lady issues#1 and 2,
and The Holmes Holiday Special story!
Written by Bobby Nash and Nancy Holder

Coming in June 2016, Domino Lady: Threesome begins. This comic book series will feature Domino Lady teaming up with other pulp heroes to take on dastardly villains and solve crimes. It’ll be fun. Nancy Holder and I co-wrote issues 1 & 2. I take over as solo writer with issue 3. Also from Moonstone Books.
