I’m a native San Franciscan who has left twice and keeps coming back, despite the four-dollar toast and insane rents. San Francisco might have its faults (seismic and otherwise) but it’s the perfect place to hide from the real world. And if I need a character for a novel I simply ride public transport for an hour or so.
When I’m not writing I’m hopefully traveling, frequently somewhere in Latin America. I can also be found walking 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, Patricia Highsmith and Quentin Tarantino, like his owner, and trying to make some sense of things in what Henning Mankell calls ‘my own language’.
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 she was doing put it together with the cool Ramones type 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 -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!
