Profile Information

Hometown:
moving from Los Angeles to the mountain town paradise of Manitou Springs, CO.
About Me:
I clawed my way up from the American underbelly of dark and dangerous places to taste the sweet smell of success. Triumph was fleeting. After crashing once again back into dark and dangerous places, I am humbled, wiser, and write about it through the genre of noir fiction.

I'm presently in the process of writing a story of crime, corruption, and racism set against the backdrop of the 73' Tom Bradley mayoral election.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
Ross MacDonald
Walter Mosley (Wow! Just wow!)
Jim Thompson
Megan Abbott (she has transcended the "formula")
James Ellroy (shattered the rules with American Tabloid & Cold Six Thousand)
Kinky Friedman (crime fiction CAN be funny; especially when it involves the Village Irregulars)
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Classic movie person with a special affection for gritty 70's detective movies, blaxploitation, Spaghetti Westerns, cheezy hot rod flicks from the 50's and Russ Meyer-type kitsch......

Glad I drew a response, Patrick. Are you going to Bouchercon next week?

Manitou Springs is beautiful. My aunt lived in Divide for a while.
