After thirty years as a professional musician (piano), Mike Dennis left Key West and moved to Las Vegas to become a professional poker player. He turned to writing when his first novel, THE TAKE, was picked up by a publisher in 2009.
His second book, SETUP ON FRONT STREET, was the first of a series of Key West Nocturnes, standalone noir novels. These books will lift the veil on Key West and reveal it as a true noir city, on a par with Los Angeles, New Orleans, or Miami.
THE GHOSTS OF HAVANA is the second book in that set. The third, MAN-SLAUGHTER, is coming soon.
Mike also has a collection of short stories, BLOODSTAINS ON THE WALLl. In addition, his stories have been published in A Twist Of Noir, Mysterical e, Powder Burn Flash, Slow Trains, and The Wizards Of Words 2009 Anthology.
In December, 2010, Mike moved back to Key West.
