To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books.

Next Sunday 2/27 - Charm City, Dope Thieves

Next Sunday (February 27) I've been invited to read at LAST RITES - a reading series held at the historic Baltimore Hostel - 17 West Mulberry Street, Baltimore, MD (7-9 PM). Nik Korpon invited me. I met Nik at this year's Noir Con and was flattered he sought me out to do this. Nik's first novel (STAY GO_D) has garnered some serious attention and the man has a contagious passion for the written word. Plus Dennis Tafoya (DOPE THIEF, THE WOLVES OF FAIRMOUNT PARK) along with Don Lafferty and Eric Goodman are on the bill. If you're on Face Book, here's some more information. Come listen...otherwise we'll just eat all the cookies, play cards, and get into trouble.
