About the author

Harris Gray

11 books15 followers
Allan Harris and Jason Gray are the writing duo Harris Gray, authors of multiple novels and screenplays, a Christmas play, and a collection of stories from Jason’s younger days. An early version of JAVA MAN was a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers contest. Allan is a former guest columnist for The Denver Post. Jason owns Crowfoot Valley Coffee and the Crowbar, land of rumor and embellishment.

The Harris Gray collaboration began in Jason’s coffee shop. Allan wrote, and eavesdropped as Jason entertained his customers. One day Allan found a little yellow notepad waiting for him, crammed to the margins with Jason’s exploits. Allan typed them, touched them up, and called it good, but Jason had other ideas. As their tales converged and became inseparable, Harris Gray took shape…the writer and the storyteller.

Allan and Jason are both married with a couple kids apiece, but many people still consider them a couple. Vampire Vic launched the VV Trilogy in March 2013; Book Three is due October 2016.

I was lucky enough to win a copy of Java Man through Goodreads recently. While I'm waiting to receive the book I read this short story as an introduction. I enjoyed it and it has left me intrigued and looking forward to reading Java Man.

I loved this sneak peek of Brian, the Java Man, before he moved to small-town USA and battled cancer! This is a great bonus for fans of JAVA MAN, or those that want to sample a bite first!
