Terry Ambrose started out skip tracing and collecting money from deadbeats and quickly learned that liars come from all walks of life. He never actually stole a car, but sometimes hired big guys with tow trucks and a penchant for working in the dark when “negotiations” failed.
A resident of Southern California, he loves spending time in Hawaii, especially on the Garden Island of Kauai, where he invents lies for others to read. His years of chasing deadbeats taught him many valuable life lessons including—always keep your car in the garage.

I'm always observing things happening around me and there may be months in between two or three different events when, all of a sudden, I connect them and realize there's a story waiting to be told. In fact, right now I'm sifting through my mental rolodex in search of the next book topic. It's not far away and I will soon have a new story to write!(less)
Terry Ambrose At the top of my list for this summer is a new book from Seventh Street Books, The Bloody Black Flag by Steve Gobel.
