Personal Quote:

On his current project: My current in-work novel is a hardboiled detective yarn set in 1940. It is a labor of love, since I know damn well it will never be published...there are maybe 12 million hardboiled dick stories out there looking for a publisher, and the only thing different about mine is that I wrote it.
