Interview with Daniel Cubias

What's the story behind your latest book?
It's a mashup of two genres: the detective novel and the Latino novel. And I mixed in some humor to make it extra spicy.
What are you working on next?
Either a sequel to Barrio Imbroglio or another mashup (e.g., Latinos battling zombies!). Maybe both at once.
Who are your favorite authors?
Gabriel Garcia Marquez is the king. Other big guns for me include Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen King, and Mark Leyner.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My son is two years old. There is no sleeping in, ever.

But when his cousin is murdered, Abraxas is dragged into a frenzied investigation that takes him from the mean barrio streets to the corridors of power in City Hall to a tequila-fueled pool party that turns deadly.
