What do your fans mean to you?
Every author should understand the importance of their fans. As a new author, I make every effort to be reach out to my fans, to keep them informed and let them know what I am working on. I also make every effort to read their emails and find their comments interesting and informative.
What are you working on next?
My next book is a followup to East LA Chronicles. In this new novel, the protagonist is actually the female "friend" of Tony Garcia. She is now a more seasoned police officer going through the trials of fighting crime, while dealing with being one of the few female cops on the Los Angeles PD. She is still very close to Tony. The chemistry between them drives them dangerously close to being lovers. The outcome is still to be written.
Tony Garcia returns to East Los Angeles after serving in Vietnam. He plans to settle down and meets a girl named Kathy. Her brother is a drug dealer who was shot over a book he owns. It contains names of important clients. He asks Tony to get the book to avoid getting killed. Tony finds himself shot at, knocked unconscious, and in car chases because people want the book. The end is a thriller!
