2 novels,  a memoir,  &  a quickie

Champion

general / literary fiction

An existential tale of the rarely depicted Los Angeles art scene that explores themes of violence and redemption. Setting its stage in the diverse boroughs of pre-Millennial L.A. and climaxing in the feverish streets of Paris, this new work is a kaleidoscope of violent mood and memory, a meditation on art and artists, and an atmospheric, sometimes brutal parable on the complex nature of love, which asks the question: what can we forgive?

 

 

 

 

 

Trading Fours front MATTE

general / literary fiction

Setting its story in a single day, four Los Angeles musicians struggle to make their living as such, and are each faced with a plight to which they must seek a resolve. By the end of the business day, their lives will have intersected in ways much like the intersection of a musical trading fours that builds to a dramatic cadence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

KidneyJournalsCover

memoir / non fiction

On July 22, 2008 I successfully donated a kidney to Hans San Juan at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, during quite possibly the most profound spell of depression I had ever experienced. This trilogy of journals takes on my own dark times and the surprising leaps of faith it sometimes takes to be delivered, as it depicts an extraordinary and life-altering adventure that turned out to save not one life, but two.
