To: Lovers of the Crime genre

Enjoy crime fiction as much as me?
Love a horrendously creative and intelligent serial killer villain as much as me?

My debut novel, The Author, is officially available for pre-order on Amazon.
You can buy it in print now.

“20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

–Mark Twain


“The Author,” description:

A heart-wrenching tale of longing, loss, vengeance and consequence.

How far would you go to rebuild the life you let break?

Forensics expert Troy Graves has helped solve a lot of crimes, but he can’t seem to put back together the pieces of his own life. After years of chasing a serial killer known as “The Portrait Killer”—TPK—through the streets of Laguna Niguel, Troy has lost his wife as well as himself. Desperate and eager for the freedom of a fresh start, he decides to take matters into his own hands. Going behind the back of his Lieutenant, Troy takes on the role of Lead Detective, hunting the streets of Laguna Niguel for the one thing that haunts him.

But when he puts a face to the monster, Troy only sees opportunity, and does something unorthodox—he asks the killer for help.

Seduced by his lust for greed, Troy seems to forget that every action has a reaction, and that befriending the Devil doesn’t go without consequence.


If you’d like to review my book, send me an email at and I’ll happily send you a free copy of the book for you to read.

What one reader had to say of the first 10 chapters:

“I read your first 10 chapters and I am very impressed.  You have a way of writing that lets the reader really get into your characters.  They are vivid and each has a separate aura about them that lets the reader gain an understanding of their lives.  There is a lot of angst represented in your characters.  This made them seem real to me.  But, the best thing about the 10 chapters is that you left me hanging.  I have no idea where you are going and what the outcome will be.  I hope you have a story line all thought out so you don’t give me a let down.  I assume you do but, and this is critically important, it has to be different.  If it is different then you have a real tale to tell.  If I had picked up this book in a store, I would want to read it and I would be glad to pay for finding out where it is going.  It is imaginative, exciting and griping — a real page turner.”

–Gene Gritton
Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into this; I’ve spent many late nights over the keyboard, and I promise I won’t disappoint. This is a story that has the sentimental elements of Nostalgia and the suspenseful, darker elements of A Crave.

Thanks for reading! If you get the book, I sincerely hope you like it. Feel free to let me know what you think.


P.S. There will be a second book to complete the story. K, cool, bye 🙂
