I’m a crime writer, an optimist, and lover of things wild and wonderful. This eclectic mix makes my books different from other crime novels.

Oh, What a Night! (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: A bizarre, hilarious urbane-fantasy short. The author invites all the villains, drug-dealers, mafia bosses, policemen, spooks, and hookers from his books to a funereal-themed, fancy-dress, extravaganza, choreographed by an undertaker. Wacky, outrageous – a touch violent.
Murder he Forgot (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Guy forgot he tried to murder his wife, twice.
Electronic Crime in Muted key (Mystery & Thrillers)

Description: About a man who fakes his death and believes his sinful life is behind him.
