Synopsis

"Scratches the same itch as Raymond Chandler."
"A Sam Spade novel mixed with a Rat Pack movie."
"If you dig the quirky characters and wild action of Elmore Leonard, pick up Hot Sinatra!"


Moss Cole is a private detective, the kind you thought only
existed in old movies and afternoon reruns. He's smart, talented,
sometimes even charming. You'd think he could find a better gig than
carrying on his grandfather's legacy as a 'Private Dick.'

Cole is out of money, out of ideas, and out of his league. That's why
he's stuck looking for a stolen Sinatra record... a record that may be
just a figment of an old man's imagination.

Of course, if that were true, Moss wouldn't have so many people busting
down his door.

Now he's got the Las Vegas mob, the Yakuza, a Mexican drug cartel and
the LAPD trying to put him six-feet under. A vivacious redhead, a
foul-mouthed Irish rock star, and a whip-smart little girl only
complicate the job, when all Cole wants is a good cup of coffee and some
Hot Sinatra.

If only he can stay alive--and in one piece--long enough to find it.

I'm most often described, in order of import, as: Badass Dad, Attendant Hubby, Author, Ex-Rocker, Time Lord, Bookhouse Boy, Coffee Addict, Dudeist, Whiskey Devil, Sox National, Enmascarado, Reformed Pugilist, Ink Monkey. I've also been known to write things -- stories, poems, comic-books, z-grade drive-in movies -- some of which have been spread around the universe like so much random stardust. Mostly, I spend my time braving the frigid tundra and unruly tribes of wandering Sasquatch of my Western Canadian home -- usually two steps behind my two brilliant young sons, and a wife that is way out of my league.
