Dave Drobach (Careeners fka Grabass Charlestons)
SPB: If you met your character Dale in real life, would you hang out with him/have a beer?
Drobach: Absolutely. Complex characters are always worth getting to know over a beer. Don't get to know Dale as a specimen in a cage. Let him in. He has great stories, will probably turn you on to books and ideas that will improve your life. Let him crash on your couch while he gets his shit together. He'll be the guy that picks you up from jail someday down the road. My closest friends are Dales. I couldn't imagine life without him/them.
