Boston born, have escaped from time to time; now live outside Lowell, MA, and teach part time at UMass Lowell, where I have been the Jack Kerouac Visiting Writer in Residence. Have published ten novels and two story collections.
Classic noir: Chandler, Goodis, Woolrich, et al. John D. MacDonald. Plus love dark fantasy writers like Bradbury, Sturgeon, Clive Barker, etc., and fiction about rock-n-roll (Armageddon Rag; Glimpses; etc.)
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Have recently rewatched Chinatown and Body Heat and dug them as much as when I first saw 'em. Others, in random order: Double Indemnity, The Late Show, The Long Goodbye, The Two Jakes, The Crow, etc.

Hi David, thanks for commenting back. I tend to write more in the speculative fiction genres, though a writers group friend told me a character I have is a perfect fit for a crime/caper series.
Reading? If it's recommended, I'll read it.
I think it's cool you have a series set in Lowell. I work at Moonstones in Chelmsford, and the owner of my restaurant ownes Cobblestones too. Let me know if you need anything for settings and such for your works.
Hey David, Great to hear from you. Yes indeed I am still around. Just made a documentary on David Goodis. Would you like to have a copy? Let me know your address. I am planing a conference called NoirCon in Philadelphia. Maybe you would like to join us. Check out www.noircon.com and www.noircon.info. Yours, Lou
