Exclusive Interview with Richard S. Prather, Author of the Best-selling Shell Scott Mystery Series


Exclusive Interview with Richard S. Prather, Author of the Best-selling Shell Scott Mystery Series



An Intimate Look at Richard S. Prather’s Writing Career and Life.

Richard Prather's long and successful writing career began in 1950 with the publication of his first Shell Scott mystery novel, “The Case of the Vanishing Beauty,” published by Fawcett's Gold Medal Paperback Originals. His successful and best-selling Shell Scott series of thirty-six novels plus four short story collections, published between 1950 and 1987, have sold over 40 million copies in the United States and have enjoyed foreign language publication, selling millions more world-wide and are considered classics. Richard S. Prather’s last Shell Scott novel “Shellshock,” was published in hardcover in 1987.

In addition to the Shell Scott mysteries, Richard penned three novels under pseudonyms. He wrote the first Dragnet novel based on the television show, “Dragnet,” titled, "Dragnet: Case No. 561," published under the name, David Knight; used that same pseudonym for the initial publication of “Pattern for Murder,” later republished by Gold Medal Books as “The Scrambled Yeggs” by Richard S. Prather; and used the pen name Douglas Ring for “The Peddler,” which was later republished under his own name by Gold Medal. He also published a number of short stories; and lent his name to the Shell Scott Mystery Magazine. “The Peddler” has recently been reissued by Hard Case Crime.

He received the Private Eye Writers of America Lifetime Achievement Award in 1986, and was twice on the Board of Directors of the Mystery Writers of America. His Shell Scott mysteries are now back in print available as POD paperbacks, ebooks, Kindle editions, and a number of his novels are published by Books in Motion as unabridged audio books.

Although Richard Prather had not published a new novel for several years, his mystery writing and classic Shell Scott character remain an inspiration to fans, both old and new, and to aspiring and established writers.

This exclusive in-depth interview by Linda Pendleton, author and widow of author Don Pendleton, and friend of Richard Prather, was completed two months before Richard’s death at 85 years of age. Within this unique interview he talks of his long writing career, his personal life, his philosophy, and gives useful information on writing for aspiring authors.

Prather had this to say about his Shell Scott character: “I created Shell Scott as essentially a light-hearted, optimistic, happy-go-lucky fellow, and from the beginning I wanted my books—even though they’re mystery novels about murder and crimes and troubles and crooks—to reflect that upbeat attitude, to focus more on the “mystery” than the “murder,” more on the approaching light than the gathering darkness. There’s always enough misery in the world, and I didn’t want to add more to it.”

The Australian Gold Rush Songster from Bristol England




The Australian Gold Rush Songster from Bristol England





Gold Rush Songster, Charles Thatcher was the Billy Connolly of the Australian goldfields. He was born in Bristol in 1831, the oldest son of Charles Thatcher and his wife Sophia, nee Hornsby. They moved to Brighton when Charles was 14; his father started a curiosity shop there. Charles went to London as a teenager to play the flute in theatre orchestras; and in 1853 emigrated to Australia in the gold rush. Finding little gold, he sought something even more elusive - orchestra work.

Everyone entertained themselves, gathering around their fires singing songs of their homelands. But the next year, a tent theatre opened, and then the Royal Victoria Theatre, a room attached to a pub. Charles played in the orchestra and shared a spot with an Irish comedian. He started doing parodies of well-known songs, making them funny and relevant to daily life on the goldfields, and it was soon clear that it was him people were coming to see.

The Melbourne Argus wrote: 'His witty commentaries give a much better idea of life on the goldfields than most of the elaborately written works,' and his best 12 songs were printed and circulated in Melbourne. A year later Charles was performing on his own in a concert hall with chandeliers, called the Shamrock, and played nearly 164 nights in succession. The Shamrock was attached to a pub and admission to the shows was free, as the owners made a fortune selling drinks. One day one Thomas Besnard was fined ?5 when he whipped Charles 'for insulting his daughter'.

Then Charles got two days in the lock-up for punching Besnard to the floor, when he saw him coming out of a Shamrock concert. His song, The Amorous Bank Manager, about a man who was caught with a publican's wife and escaped through her window, had a few hisses mixed in with the thunderous applause. The Shamrock's owner then stormed on to the stage demanding to know why 'such a licentious and objectionable song' had been allowed. He shouted he'd 'wring Thatcher's neck if he came near enough,' and when Charles arrived on stage, a fight broke out. Reviews then started to be about Charles Thatcher's fighting ability as well as his songs.

Charles Thatcher was always topical, and sang about 'the troubles of the new chums, the excitement of gold rushes, fisticuffs, horse racing, cricket, the nuisance of dogs around the township, and puddling'.

The Jolly Puddlers was one of his hits and described the alternative and very messy way of finding gold, that involved splashing around to get gold out of waste clay. One day a female singer, Annie Day, arrived in town and two months later she and Charles disappeared. His adoring fans saw him again six months later, when he and Annie returned in February 1861 as a married couple. They kept on with the shows, but Bendigo was no longer the town of wild living. So they followed the diggers to New Zealand, and did it all again there. They returned to Bendigo in 1867, and the crowds were as appreciative as ever. Three years later the couple went to England with their two daughters.

Charles started selling curios he'd collected in the East. So excited by selling old vases he'd bought for a few rupees for 50 pounds, he left again, saying: 'I cannot resist the opportunity of making a few more thousands.' On this 'one more trip' he caught cholera and died in Shanghai in September 1878.

Hart Pease Danks, composer of "Silver Threads Among the Gold"  written in 1873 based on a poem by Eben Rexford





"Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold
Shine upon my brow today;
Life is fading fast away;
But, my darling, you will be, will be,
Always young and fair to me,

Hart Pease Danks (6 April 1834 – 20 November 1903) was a musician who specialised in composing, singing and leading choral groups. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, he moved with his family to Saratoga Springs, New York when he was aged eight. He studied music with Dr. E. Whiting, later moving to Chicago, where he worked as a carpenter in his father's construction business before embarking on a full time music career. In 1864, he moved to New York City, where in 1892 he published his Superior Anthems for Church Choirs. The next year, he published his best known song, "Silver Threads Among the Gold" (words by Eben E. Rexford), which sold over three million copies. Having sold the rights to it, though, he died penniless in a boarding house in Philadelphia, his last written words: "It’s hard to die alone".

Pease Danks was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970.
Yes, my darling, you will be,
Always young and fair to me."
