Writer for University. I write short stories and have published about 25 stories in various print and zine outlets. About a third of them are crime fiction in places such as Thuglit, Demolition, Hardluck Stories, Shred of Evidence, The Spinetingler, SHOTS, The Thrilling Detective, Murdaland and forthcoming in Mouth Full of Bullets. I am trying to write a novel now and finding it difficult yet rewarding.
Daniel Woodrell, Patricia Highsmith, Charles Willeford, Nicholas Freeling, Ross MacDonald, Lawrence Block, Megan Abbott, Ken Bruen, Sandra Scoppettone and many more current crime fiction writers. Alice Munro, Richard Bausch, Philip Roth, Ian McEwan, Russell Banks, Richard Yates head the list of literary favorites.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
The Wire, The Sopranos, Rescue Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mad Men, The Godfather 1 & 2, Bringing Up Baby, Rear Window, Pelle, the Conqueror, Goodfellows, The Graduate, The Maltese Falcon, Double Indemnity, The Beat That My Heart Skipped, Wings of Desire
BTW, if you're a fiction reader, check out my books based in Detroit (all except Stone's Revenge, which is in Ohio). I'm a sensual noir author and I'm sure you'll enjoy them (not just because I wrote them, LOL.) Check out my books at by clicking here.
Patti: I completely forgot about this note from you! I meant to say HI THERE are Bcon this past week, but we kept passing in the night, so to speak. It has to have been the best con I've ever been to, not counting Sleuthfest of course :) Hope to see you at a sleuthfest sometime.
