Interview with Rick Moskovitz

Hi Rick Moskovitz, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Rick Moskovitz : I'm a Harvard educated psychiatrist who sees the future through the lens of enduring moral and emotional struggles.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Rick Moskovitz : My stories are my legacy. I'd like as many people as possible to experience the worlds I create and to learn what I hold dear and how I envision the world for the generations to come.
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Rick Moskovitz : In the early nineties, I had something new to say about Borderline Personality Disorder and joined my expertise with my passion for teaching to write a book for patients and their families, kindling my love for the process of writing. A few years later, my fascination with the nuances and malleability of memory led me write my first work of fiction, a psychological mystery about recovered memories.
Oltobooks : Why do you write?
Rick Moskovitz : I love words and I love to craft stories that pique the imagination, draw people into unfamiliar worlds, and instill wonder.
Oltobooks : What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?
Rick Moskovitz : As I observed the pursuit of radical life extension and perhaps eventually immortality, I wondered how the choices will be made and at what price to humanity and to the world. These questions became the driving force behind A Stand-in for Dying, the first book of the Brink of Life Trilogy.
Oltobooks : Where do your ideas come from?
Rick Moskovitz : Some ideas come from years of listening to people tell me about their dreams and their challenges, some from my voracious consumption of scientific discovery and invention, and some from everyday experiences like the drive through window at my bank.
Oltobooks : What is the hardest thing about writing?
Rick Moskovitz : Starting something new.
Oltobooks : What is the easiest thing about writing?
Rick Moskovitz : The rare occurrences when my characters seem to take over and write themselves.
Oltobooks : If this book is part of a series, tell us a little about it?
Rick Moskovitz : The Brink of Life Trilogy is about our greed for life and the unintended consequences of pursuing immortality. It is about how the finiteness of life lends life its meaning and makes it precious. And it is ultimately about how we make choices about power, wealth, and fame and about life and death that shape our destiny and character.
Oltobooks : What are your thoughts on writing a book series?
Rick Moskovitz : A good series grows, introducing something new with each book, a unique story that springs from the world of its predecessor and takes it to another level. Each book of my Trilogy has a new protagonist, developed from a minor character introduced in a previous book.
Oltobooks : What is your favourite positive saying?
Rick Moskovitz : To persuade, you must first listen well.
Oltobooks : Where can you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
Rick Moskovitz : Still creative and still working on the crucial problems of our world, with some of the solutions hopefully becoming clearer.
Oltobooks : What advice would you give to your younger self?
Rick Moskovitz : The events that most change your life, for better or for worse, are the ones you least expect.
