Thomas Pluck has slung hash, worked on the docks, trained in martial arts in Japan, and even swept the Guggenheim museum (but not as part of a clever heist). He hails from Nutley, New Jersey, home to criminal masterminds Martha Stewart and Richard Blake, but has so far evaded capture. Wallace Stroby called his novel BAD BOY BOOGIE "a vivid dose of New Jersey noir with heart, soul and muscle.“

Joyce Carol Oates calls him “a lovely kitty man.”

He is also the editor of the Protectors anthologies to benefit PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children.

You can find him on the web at www.thomaspluck.com and Twitter as @thomaspluck

She had it on her bookshelf, and I used the book to find Slim Harpo's grave. Thank you for writing it. I love the state of Louisiana and write about it -- from the perspective of an outsider who loves the people.(less)

I will be reading at Noir at the Bar Queens, September 28th! Held at Kew & Willow Books, hosted by Alex Segura and Scott Adlerberg. They have really raised the bar (no pun intended) and run a great reading series. I’ll be reading from Riff Raff, the second Jay Desmarteaux novel, which will be released by Down & Out Books in autumn 2019. A great line-up: Kelly Braffett, Radha Vatsal, SJ...

isn't a simple retelling or flipping of Beowulf but its own unique and gripping folktale of suburbia, and I enjoyed every page. A great read that joins this year's myth-inspired shelf with Circe by Madeline Miller.
