Profile Information

About Me:
I've written seven books in 15 years. Books that nobody has wanted to buy, but I persist. I've been working on two new manuscripts, a spy story and a crime novel, thought it would be a good time to join Crimespace.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer, Critic
Books And Authors I Like:
Most things hard-boiled from the Black Mask era. There are very few contemporary authors that I read, and while I'm not a joiner in the current "torture porn" controversy, I agree with the basic arguments, which is why I don't read many current authors. Hammett, Spillane, Paul Cain, Chandler, Nebel, Peter Rabe. Those are my usual suspects.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Old movies, noir, adventure, serials are great. I dislike a lot of modern movies for the same reason I dislike a lot of modern books, there's not enough there to grab my attention, just a rehash of what's come before. But every now and then, you find a gem.
