Profile Information

Hometown:
Ashland, Oregon
About Me:
I write noir short stories and novels. I have a novel, NO TIME TO MOURN, set on Jack London Square in Oakland, California. I have had published over 70 short stories. Among the most recent is "The Masseuse" in MWA's anthology DEATH DO US PART and "Crip and Henrietta" in the PLOTS WITH GUNS anthology. My story "Jaunita will appear in the upcoming THUGLIT anthology.

Books And Authors I Like:
I tend to like the darker stuff: Connelly, Rankin, Crais, Lehane, Pelacanos as well as, of course, the classics, Hammett, Chandler, Ross MacDonald. Others include the older Paretsky, Hillerman, Mosley. Two books that stand out in my mind are Lehane's MYSTIC RIVER and Val MacDermid's A PLACE OF EXECUTION.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
TV: The Sopranos, The Wire, Law & Order (standard and Special Victims). I confess to watching CSI (Vegas) and from time to time Without a Trace and Cold Case. Movies: all classic B&W noir, and a too long list of thrillers though I prefer those with a bit more attention to a real plot and not just total destruction. I couple of oldies (medium aged) I recently enjoyed were Target, a Gene Hackman thriller that was released around the time the Berlin Wall fell and Clint Eastwood's marvelous thriller in which he is a very aged Secret Service agent. Also LA Confidential.

It's not fair but who said novel writing has got to be fair?



I have just learned that one of my stories "Juanita" has… Continue

Hello Tim - thanks a mill for adding me as one of your friends here. I am still getting familiar with how Crimespree works, but I did get a blog on my site on writing short story as compared to longer works which you might enjoy --

Thanks Tim. The clock on this site is all screwed up, or set to some foreign time! For me it is June 5th but your comment says 3 AM on June 6th. I can get confused all by myself, thank you!

Great to hear from you Neil. Right now I am seeking a publisher for a Crip novel. I miss PWG.
