Reader Question Time

Born in Turlock, California in 1964, Richard Paolinelli began his writing career as a freelance writer in 1984 in Odessa, TX and gained his first fiction credit serving as the lead writer for the first two issues of the Elite Comics sci-fi/fantasy series, Seadragon.

I’ve been asked what music do I listen to when I’m writing?

Any one of three Himekami albums – Moonwater, Snowgoddess and Journey to Zipangu – some amazing Japanese new age music I discovered back in the late 1980s.

If you haven’t MI0001501399heard of them before, there’s a neat little widget on this site that allows a music playlist to be posted. Look to your right on your screen and you will see the songs from Moonwater, the first album I discovered.

My personal favorite is No. 8 “Into Blue Snows”.
