Warning: I have a Nietzsche trigger finger.
A childhood in San Diego, the Bay area after that: Berkeley and Oakland were my stamping grounds.
The only damn thing I've ever been good at is telling stories... so here I am. By nature contrary, I'm not suited to things like "team spirit" and "following the party line" and "legal employment." I've always been more comfortable around criminals and misfits and losers, they're the only ones capable of having an objective view of the world around them. They know they're not part of that world, so getting perspective is easy. I was married for a while, it took the woman a long time to come to her senses. Now I reside in the Sierra Nevada foothills, spinning tales about the uglier side of paradise I remember from my youth, and also petting the cat.
More misadventures with Lenny and Bekka, the smut-producing, meth-snorting, gun-toting Gen X slackers from SoCal during the 1990s. This is the third book in the series, and they are facing enemies they'd never even imagined.... Five short stories in one place, add it to the shelf.
The first collection in a series of short stories which aim to revive the Pulp style of action and crime writing. Lenny and Bekka work for an adult film studio north of San Diego. They live for having thrills, they're just two more Gen X'ers in SoCal whose world view is a touch cynical. Well, due to circumstances, their lives are going to get very wild....
The second in the "Coital Charade" series of books, millennial pulp fiction. Lenny and Bekka are a young married couple who like getting high on meth and driving too fast. You'd think being associated with the SoCal mafia would be simple, right? Visit the dirty side of Paradise in the "Coital Charade" series of short story collections.
