Hello from Denver, Colorado! I am the author of The Hot Dog Detective series that follow the adventures of Mark MacFarland ("Mac" to his friends), a recovering alcoholic who undertakes to solve crimes the police have gotten wrong or can't solve. As one reviewer described him, Mac is one of the "wounded dysfunctional Noir Private Eyes of the world," who champions the little guy and the "invisible people" who are ignored by most of us. In trying to get his life together, MacFarland sells hot dogs off a vendor cart near the courthouse and the jail in downtown Denver...a perfect place to find those most in need of his help.
As a consultant and corporate trainer, I've traveled and lived in California, Texas, New Jersey, India, the Philippines, Mexico, and Scotland, and too many other places to name. After having circled the globe numerous times, I've settled down in the Denver. Just as Denver is the gateway to the Rockies, I intend that The Hot Dog Detective stories will take place all over the Front Range and throughout Colorado.
Each of The Hot Dog Detective stories is a stand alone novel, but they do take place in a temporally sequential manner. It doesn't take a detective to figure out their order, however, since they appear in this sequence:
The Avid Angler (available on Amazon)
The Busty Ballbreaker (available on Amazon)
The Crying Camper
The Desperate Druggie
The Eager Evangelist
The Freaky Fan
And, yes, there will be twenty-six mysteries for MacFarland to solve.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The characters are believable, and the storyline is interesting. The setting is well described and familiar. The resolution to the mystery is believable.
I'll be reading more books in this series!
