Default What would you like to see in Dirk's next book?

Hi everyone!
What would you like to see in Dirks' next book.
I myself would like to see a continuation of the first two books enough I haven't read the second book, And Then We Went Fishing.
Tracy at dbcentral here, mentioned a book that Dirk just might be working on.
I believe the title was "Montana Memoirs....". I'm sorry I forget the rest of it.
Also, it would be great to see a book that Dirk and Dwight Schultz might be writing together about their experiences on the A-Team come into reality. I would also very much like to see a book about Dirk's experiences on being on Battlestar Galactica and meeting and acting with the late and legendary Lorne Greene of Bonanza fame.
I think a great title for the third book might be "More Thoughts of a Kamikaze Cowboy".
What would you like the title to be and what would you like to see in it?

Take care,
Anne

This from a clip about a convention appearance:

"His third book, Montana Memoirs: Notes from a Dangerous Wordsmith, will be a collection of short stories covering his childhood in Montana. He has also written two original stage plays, Puppy Dog Tales and Acting Becomes Her."

Growing up in a small rural town myself, I'd love to see this. And being a fan of the A-Team, I'm also anxious to see if the collaborative work comes to anything. Frankly, anything he writes about is bound to be interesting, entertaining and probably controversial :lol:

Also wondering if anyone (Tracy?) has any info on those two stage plays?

Hi ostarella !
Very good points!
Thank you for posting that. I just couldn't remember what the rest of the title was.
I wonder if he has ever peformed those plays? :?
Anyone know?

Anne

Dirk opened his mind and heart in his previous books (1st and 2nd respectively).

The 'Montana memoirs' idea seems just the right sort of light-hearted stuff perfect for a 3rd book. It reminds me of the stuff Alec Guiness wrote in his autiobiographies - he managed to write loads of entertaining anecdotes, and yet at the end of it one didn't really know anything more about the shy man. I think such a way to go would be good for Dirk, as he has already poured out his angst, etc in earlier books, he doesn't need to revisit those thoughts.

Also, Dirk has written a few screenplays (and plays) - I hope he might consider writing some novels - the advantage being that no one else can interfere with the work, unlike when a screenplay is bought and goes in to production - directors, actors, everyone wants to fiddle with it! With a published novel, if a film producer liked the book, he/she could pay Dirk to turn it into a screenplay (double-money)?

Regards

Except the editors and publishers :wink: But it would be neat to see what he would come up with fictionally. I haven't been able to watch "Cahoots", just read about it, so I have only a general idea what his purely creative side is like, scribe-wise. I'd be willing to bet he'd have a few surprises for us :lol:

I want to read anything he pens, frankly. If only he'd hurry up! The third book in his autobiographical trilogy will be fascinating, I'm sure. In fact, his life story would make a wonderful film, if adhered to faithfully. (When reading "Cowboy" the thought crossed my mind that perhaps Dirk has lived his father's life for him. The life I suspect his father wanted to live. It seems to have been a rich and fascinating one, albeit one of mixed blessing and fortune - but I'm glad a world audience has had a chance to embrace him, even if his profession, by and large, did not.)

I wondered if the phrase "did deep, puppy in bottom" refers to his solitary sojourn at the bottom of many a grave. I'd like to hear all about his university days, anything further he feels he can comfortably share about his early life and his adventures in Hollywood and when travelling throughout the US, the dangers he encountered, the girls, (doubtless numbered in their hordes), the highs and lows and what he wants now, at this point in his life; because, apart from his sons, I don't think he found what he really wanted and I very much hope he still will.

I'd love to read any fiction he has written in the past or will write in the future, although he doesn't appear to have much regard for fiction. Which is a great shame because he'd be so darn good at it. In short, anything and everything. As long as it's SOON!

refers to a meal he and his father had. Can't remember now if that is in ATWWF (don't have it right in front of me) or was in an article I read...

Hi everyone!
Lots of very interesting and very good suggestions everyone is making here!
I also agree that Dirk would also be great as a fiction writer.

Take care,
Anne
