Needs a review or two--maybe even a fan or two. Hey! It could happen!?

I'm not saying this is the greatest novel since Dick and Jane Spent the Night Together.  But it's pretty damn close. For all you hard boiled police-procedural fans out there, you might discover a jewel in the rough with this one.  And while you're at it, maybe a review?…See More

It's tough isn't it?  I've got one of the best agents in the country, yet can't quite seem to clinch the deal...

Yeah, I know...rebel without a cause! Just wanted to say I enjoyed your stories posted on TKnCs recently (especially No One to Depend On). I can't post comments on that site 'cause you need a website/blog (Rebel without an URL?). Anyway, wanted to drop a line... Tanis

It's like when people say 'all philosophy is footnotes to Plato.' It's an exaggeration, of course. But the idea is that Plato created the basic template and everyone else kind of works within that template.

Why would anyone write? To leave their unique stamp on the template.
