LET’S REVISIT “FULLY LOADED”, SHALL WE?

Looking out the window at a gray, windy day here in Key West, I was reminded of an earlier short story of mine, a little opus titled Fully Loaded. It’s a slice of Southern noir, and since I just got done reading and reviewing Quarry’s Choice, a very noirish novel by Max Allan Collins which, like my short story, is […]

“SETUP ON FRONT STREET”

Now seems like a pretty good time to have another look at Setup On Front Street, the first novel in my Key West Nocturnes series. A pretty good noir tale, if I do say so myself. It happens to be available as an ebook, paperback, and audiobook. Go here to check it out. Here’s the opening: […]

LET’S REVISIT “BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE EYES”

This 2012 short story is a nifty little slice of Las Vegas noir, a variation on a familiar theme. I reread it this morning and I have to say I think it’s a damned good story, if I do say so myself. Here’s the opening. See what you think. Oh, they were a deep blue, […]

“FULLY LOADED” REACHES NEW HEIGHTS!!

Yes, we knew it would happen sooner or later. Fully Loaded, my gripping noir short story set in a Mississippi used car lot in 1984, is finally breaking out of the pack. As of this writing, it has raced all the way up to #679,067 in the Amazon rankings. Based on this groundswell of sales, I’m […]

“THE TAKE” IS RE-RELEASED

Back in 2009, a small traditional press picked up my standalone noir novel, The Take, and published it. It was my first time, so you can imagine I was pretty stoked. I was going to be published! You get the idea. Well, reality soon set in. I hated the cover, I was forced to make some […]

“SETUP ON FRONT STREET” GOES AUDIO

I’m pleased to announce that Setup On Front Street, the first entry in my Key West Nocturnes Series, is now available as an audiobook. I’m also the narrator. My appreciation goes to Amber Grayson Vayle of Lyrical Lip Service, an audio publisher, for giving me this opportunity. I’ve done a few narrations of short stories for […]

“THE DOWNTOWN DEAL” IS NOW AVAILABLE

Finally, THE DOWNTOWN DEAL has gone live. It’s the latest entry in the Jack Barnett/Las Vegas Series, centering around a reluctant ex-private eye in Sin City, USA. Here’s a brief description: October, 2003. Sandra Blake is dead. A bullet in her forehead. Her ex-husband wants former private investigator Jack Barnett to find the killer. The […]

NOT EXACTLY YOUR FATHER’S PRIVATE EYE

The folks at Lyrical Lip Service have hired me to perform voiceovers on audio versions of short stories and books. My first one just went live the other day and I’m pretty juiced about it. It’s a hardboiled-private eye-erotica short story called Sam Spank and the Wild Widow, written by Molly Synthia, and now available […]

“THE DOWNTOWN DEAL” NEARING PUBLICATION

Yes, it’s almost here. Simmering and just about ready to remove from the oven. The third gripping installment of my Jack Barnett / Las Vegas series, The Downtown Deal, is on the verge of publication. The series, centering around a hardboiled ex-private investigator living in Las Vegas, has previously consisted of two novelettes, Temptation Town and Hard Cash. The […]

“CADILLAC’S COMIN’ ” NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK!!!

Not that the world has been waiting for this with its tongue hanging out, but I’ve finally decided to make Cadillac’s Comin’ available in paperback. This is my experimental rockabilly novel, and it’s been available only as an ebook since its publication a few years ago. But I recently got my brain wrapped around the Kindle […]
