Author of 'Sendero' and 'Who Sings to the Dead?'


not The Mona Lisa

I spent my formative years abroad where I perfected the fine art of pointing at things I wanted to eat, but I always seem to return to my native San Francisco, a city some consider not without its faults (seismic and otherwise). I think SF is a great place to hide from the real world however, and if I need a character for a novel I just ride public transport for an hour or so.

When not writing I am hopefully traveling. Latin America is a favorite stop, as anyone who has read my work can probably guess.

Kindred spirits with a dog named Floyd, a shelter-mix who stops and stares at headlights as they pass by at night. There’s a story there, too. If only Floyd could talk. Perhaps he’s channeling the demons of Jim Thompson, Elmore Leonard and Patricia Highsmith, like his owner, and trying to make some sense of them.

Kirkus listed my debut novel, SENDERO, a thriller set in modern-day Peru, as one of the top 100 Indie novels of 2012. WHO SINGS TO THE DEAD, the second in the SENDERO series, was released January 2013. My 16-and-above YA/New Adult/Old Adult thriller titled LETHAL DISPATCH was released in 2014. Watch the trailer; it’s pretty good because someone who knew what they were doing put it together with the cool  music I paid twenty bucks for. So watch it if only for the music.

I just published LOOKING FOR THE DEAD BOYS, a ’70s biker novel with an ex-con Mom looking for her wayward daughter. It’s the first of a Meth Noir genre and I coined the term, so there you have it. 

I also have a collection of short *dark* fiction titled OUT BY THE TREES. It’s not for everybody so please be warned but please help yourself to a -free- download from Smashwords at Out by the Trees. (I’m working on making the book permafree on Amazon.)

Also, feel free to drop me a email. I am always happy to hear from people and if you took the time to read any of my work, you go to the head of the line!

Contact the author. Have you read Sendero? Who Sings to the Dead? My short fiction? Comments? Abuse? Want to be notified when a new novel comes out? Let me know!
