Larry Brill has been a storyteller since, well, forever. He began making up stories as soon as he was old enough to tell a fib. It carried him through school and into the world of TV news as an anchor and reporter.
Fudging the facts was never an option as a journalist, so Larry began writing fiction and has unleashed his quirky outlook on life and offbeat brand of humor on the fans of his novels from his home base in Austin, Texas.

It was interesting to look back as a baby boomer at the same hot-button emotions that came with growing up male. Semegran pushed them without resorting to hackneyed prose.

Not one of his best, but a nice little story. Less crime more caper-ish.
