I’m very happy to announce a brand new anthology that I am a contributor to. DIE BEHIND THE WHEEL is an anthology of crime stories inspired by the music of Steely Dan.  The book features stories by David Corbett, Nick Feldman, Bill Fitzhugh, RT Lawton, Cornelia Read, Stacy Robinson, David B. Schlosser, Sam Wiebe & James Ziskin.  My contribution is based on the song “Haitian Divorce” and features a criminal couple looking to end their relationship…permanently.  A big thanks to Brian Thornton & Eric Campbell of Down & Out Books for including me in the book.

The book is available from all usual places, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, etc. For all the bookstore links, pls go here!

I had a lot of fun turning this song into a story and I hope you enjoy it too.  If you need a reminder of the song and some insight into my story, you can give it a listen here.

My frustrated DJ self emerges yet again for a playlist for my new thriller SAVING GRACE.  The playlist reflects the various themes and plotlines from the book.  If you’ve read the book, these songs will make a lot of sense and if you haven’t, it should give you an inkling as to what to expect.  Either way, the songs should result in a shake of the head…or a groan.   🙂

So here’s what’s on the playlist:

“Let her go.” – Passenger

“I’m the man.” –  Joe Jackson

“Desperado”  –  Rhianna

“Sunday Papers” –  Joe Jackson

“Protection” –  Massive Attack

“Money” –  Pink Floyd

“Regret” –  New Order

“Running up that hill” –  Kate Bush

“There’s a guy works down the chip shop swears he’s Elvis” –  Kirsty MacColl

The Jaffa Cake Munchkin song

Now just hit play to listen.  Enjoy!!
