My new collection of crime stories, ASKING FOR TROUBLE, is now available as an eBook from Amazon Kindle, Smashwords for other reading devices and the iPad bookstore. The paperback will be out in early summer.
The road to crime begins with a single decision—the wrong one. Not every decision belongs to the criminally minded. Some belong to the ill-informed, the weak and the plain unlucky. In these tales, trouble isn't an indiscriminate force of nature. It's a manmade occurrence that comes when called upon.
In Making Ends Meet, Richard is so tired of supporting his deadbeat in-laws that he decides he's going to cut them out of his life—for good. Jamie Lassen is just Protecting The Innocent when he tells Chris Forbes to stop dating his sister. A Fender Bender with a drug dealer’s car puts Todd in hock with the mob and a kingpin makes Todd responsible for a much larger debt. The Taskmasters picked Matt out just at the right time. Tired of his dead-end life, he was looking for someone to help him turn his life around.
These tales and others prove that ASKING FOR TROUBLE is a case of good intentions gone bad and bad intentions gone worse.
I hope you'll check out the book.
