Profile Information

Sacramento, CA
About Me:
I fight crime. I wear a fedora and trench coat winter and summer. I work alone. In my spare time I write crime novels.
Actually my wife does help me. She hides behind the car and reloads my .45s when I'm in a fight and keeps me supplied with jelly donuts and coffee.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
Cain, Chandler, Thompson, Hammett, Sayers, Christie, Stout, Gruber, Zola, Woolrich and many others. Anything noir.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
The film that gave me most trouble and thought was: L'Affiare Dominici, starring Jean Gabin, 1973. To me, very troubling, and the crime was never really solved to the satisfaction of all. I have my own theory that works for me, but if you get a chance, watch the film.

But this time it was different. I really liked my idea, and I was actually being paid (in a roundabout way). I wrote the first draft of what would become “The Albemarle Affair” during my paid lunch breaks at work. I drank more coffee than Balzac and… Continue
