I'm a hardened thief. A taker. Well ... not really. In fact my aversion to avoiding physical pain at all costs, suspect fighting skills honed from years of reading just the back cover blurbs of martial arts "How to" books, and nagging inability to keep even the smallest of secrets have made unwelcome in most outlaw circles. I mean, there is the "please, not in the face, He did it! He did it!" snitch and heist club I'm a member of but we have yet to pull off a successful one ... or not claim we're late for something else and really have to go on the day of the heist :-). But I DO steal as many free moments as I can to read the fantasy, drama, humor and crime fiction of other talents and create some of my own. Among that work is 5 Shots. 5 Shots is a graphic novel collection with five stories (hence the title) focused on the case files of an African-American, female, private eye named Jay Nova who – off the books – helps desperate people resolve "situations" they can’t, or won’t, go to the law with. And did I mention she has a secret ability to read minds that she can't control or predict? The follow up to 5 Shots - titled Blind Corners - is being put together as of this post. Thanks for having me here and I hope I can contribute as much as I learn. Wishing any and everyone great reading, writing and success.
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
Authors I dig (but not graves for :-) ) -Walter Mosley, Chester Himes,George Pelicanos,Octavia Butler to name just a few.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Law and Order (Both the original when it aired and SVU), The Wire, Training Day, Across 110th Street, Shaft (The first two movies. Pretty much pretend Shaft in Africa and the tv show never happened. Thought the movie with Samuel L. Jackson was decent) and many, many more (tv shows and movies) that I haven't named for the sake of not turning this into a 200 page post :-).
