I write crime thrillers - post-modern with a twist. So, I sweat bullets and laugh at myself, drunk on life. I'm captivated by my own imagination, looking for zinger dialog and blazing story.

GOAT-RIPPER is a sexy romantic crime thriller in the heart of Sonoma wine country. Jake Knight, Afghan vet and new PI, goes after a wine cheat and saves the governor.

GURL-POSSE KIDNAP is a drug deal gone wrong. It morphs into murder, kidnap and redemption as Jake helps his client see the light.

GUT-CHECK GREEN has environmental terrorists raiding a wine party. They stymie a task force sent to hunt them down. Only Jake can identify and chase them, going up against a vicious killer, the Pencil Man.

WAR NO MORE. A review.

WAR NO MORE. Review: The Empty Throne by Bernard Cornwell

I do meditate on why we humans still kill. What could be worth taking another person’s life? My 800 cable channels versus your doctrinaire caliphate? Getting into heaven couldn’t be that easy. A blood-soaked ticket doesn’t pass as entry fee, no matter what sergeants, priests and mullahs say. Nor do I want to be in a heaven with the avengi... Read more of this blog post »
