I am an avid reader and an author of Crime Noir fiction. My crime novels are often described as fast-paced, violent, explicit, and compelling.

I am the author of BONA FIDE JOBS, WHERE MOTH AND RUST CORRUPT, as well as SELENA and two upcoming follow-ups, DIESEL THERAPY and SUICIDE LOUNGE. I live and write in Bowling Green, KY.

My subconscious works in the background, and I'm often amazed by what it delivers just in time. I never know what's going to come out. It's a rush.

The best thing about publishing is getting input from others, whether they be editors or writers. Writing is a lonely task. Publishing is a team effort. There's nothing like working with people you admire and respect. The end result is much stronger.(less)

Gusto Dave Greg,

Thanks for approving us as friends.

I’m Gusto Dave Jackson, publicist for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I didn’t tout our blog and organization. Chiseled in Rock http://chiseledinrock.blogspot.com features side-splitting satire and some flash fiction for intellectual readers.

Today on the Rock: pick up a laugh from the hilarious E.C. STACY, writer of risqué romances and basher of grammar and the overworked comma.

RMFW has several bestselling authors such as NYT Bestseller JEANNE STEIN and J.A. KAZIMER. You have an open invitation to the Rock for contests, entertainment, and an insight to the world of writing! Let’s follow each others’ blogs!
