Tag Archive: author interview


1.  Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or
less tagline:
 

 Title-Pale Boundaries.  Genre-science fiction.
Tagline-A refugee from a rough frontier world immigrates to a colony
where poaching and childbearing without a permit are heinous crimes; a
good deed threatens to expose a criminal conspiracy.

2.  Who is your favorite character and why? 

Terson Reilly, the protagonist.  It was fun to discover what made him tick as he emerged;
to see how he resolved the inner conflicts that arose when his mores
ran counter to the society he found himself in.

3.  If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?

I think I’d change the presentation of the prologue and first two
chapters.  Why?  Several readers have felt that the chronological
transitions between those sections on first read seemed “choppy.”

4.  Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:

During a routine edit/revision a couple of supporting characters
decided that they needed more inktime and sent the entire story in
another direction.  As a result the final version of Pale Boundaries
contains only a quarter of the “original” transcript.

5.  How can we contact you or find out more about your books? 

 Check out my Amazon author page at www.amazon.com/Scott-Cleveland/e/B0033IRLU8/

Also: http://thescattering.wordpress.com/2010/07/07/verdict-pale-boundaries-by-scott-cleveland/

6.  What can we expect from you in the future? 

The previously mentioned rewrite left me with plenty of material to work with; there
will be at least two more books featuring these characters before I
get them out of my system.

7.  And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

  The sound of a steel door slamming against its stops tore through
Terson’s throbbing head like a bullet. His eyelids felt like they were
lined with sandpaper. His mouth tasted like a small animal had crawled
inside and shit itself to death.

  “Reilly; out!”

  Terson pulled himself to his feet and shuffled across a floor tacky
with bile and stale urine. The jailer took him by the arm and led him
to the discharge station. A tall, slender man in a black jumpsuit
stood in the foyer bouncing on the balls of his feet—Captain Maalan
Bragg, the Federal Police investigator who also acted as Terson’s
probation officer.

  His belongings spilled onto the counter before him. Nothing was
left of the hundred-euro note he remembered leaving home with but
small change. The arrest bond slid across to him.

  “Twenty-five hundred,” the jailer smirked. “Cash or credit?”

  Terson flipped his debit card back. “Cash—and I want my receipt this time.”

  The transaction processed and his card hit him in the chest. “See
you next week, smartass.”

  Bragg intercepted him as he headed for the door. “You violated
probation again.”

  Terson examined his knuckles. New cuts and scrapes lay atop old
scars and partially healed wounds. He explored the inside of his mouth
with his tongue for cuts or missing teeth, but everything was as it
should be.

  “I guess I won.”

Drive-Thru Interview with Author T.L. Haddix

1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:

Secrets In The Shadows, mystery.  Everyone has secrets.  Lauren Grant is finding out the hard way that they can kill.  Will she survive the attack of demons from her past or become its victim once again?

2.)   Who is your favorite character and why? 

Not really sure.  Mary Margaret was the most fun to write, simply because I could let out my inner witch.  The uglier she got, the better.

3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?

It would be the one thing that I did change, which was the order of the first 8 chapters.  SITS needed a hook, and switching those chapters around gave it that.  I still have about 30 copies of the paperback that haven’t been changed, but the e-books have all been updated.  The paperback available on Amazon is next. 

4.)   Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:

Although I researched very carefully, I wasn’t careful enough.  There really is a Leroy, Indiana.  Oops.  It’s a tiny little burg in the northern part of the state, whereas my town is situated on the banks of the Ohio River, bordering Kentucky.  I hope the townsfolk of Leroy don’t mind my borrowing the name.  I chose the name because of a very private and personal connection, so it’s one thing I don’t feel I can budge on.

5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

I’m pretty easy to find.  My website is www.tlhaddix.com, blog is www.tlhaddix.com/content, and I also have a Facebook fan page, http:// www.facebook.com/tlhaddix.  The book is available at Amazon, BN.com and Smashwords.  Smashwords also has free short stories, some related to the Leroy’s Sins Series, some standalones.  

6.)   What can we expect from you in the future?

As of now, there are four books planned for the Leroy’s Sins Series.  Book two, Under the Moon’s Shadow, is due out somewhere around 08/01/2010, so very soon – and I can’t wait.  We’re looking at a spring 2011 release for the third book, and probably late summer 2011 for the fourth.  Additionally, I’m trying to put out at least one short story per month, and once I’ve compiled enough of those, I’ll probably offer them together in a collection. 

7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

As dawn reached its fingers out over the Midwest, the sun creating pink trails that stretched toward the rivers and fields, the woman’s sleep was disturbed by haunting images of quiet violence.  The dream started innocuously enough, as she was walking through a sunlit meadow, the warm summer breezes gently teasing her hair away from her face.  As she turned her face toward the sky, eyes closed against the glare of the sun, a sudden chill coursed across her skin, and a shadow fell across her face.  Opening her eyes, she was startled to see that ugly black clouds had covered the sky from horizon to horizon, roiling, churning things, filled with a malevolence she could sense in her core.

1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:

 Dancing with the Tide.

Romantic adventure.

It’s up to bodyguards Liam and Aidan to protect cute, sexy gay pop star Karif al-Fulan. But will Karif destroy their love with his intimate advances?

2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?

My favorite is buff, sexy Liam, a former SEAL whose passion is protecting others.

3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?

 Though I’ve been praised for my descriptions, I’d like to make them even better by visiting Tunisia myself!

4.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

 http://www.mahubooks.com

http://www.loose-id.com/Dancing-with-the-Tide.aspx

5.)   What can we expect from you in the future?

 A third Liam & Aidan book, a sexy new novella in September, a short story called “At the Diner” at Untreed Reads, and a fifth book in my Mahu mystery series.

6.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

Aidan opened the French doors and stepped onto the narrow balcony. Below him, Liam exited the building, then stopped and opened his cell phone. At the fruit vendor’s stall across the street, women in faded floral print dresses, with kerchiefs tied around their heads, shook melons and argued with the owner. Old men in white robes with the round red chechias on their heads sat in the shadows of doorways. Birds screeched in the trees and somewhere Aidan heard a donkey braying. In the open lot across the road, young boys in T-shirts and brightly-colored athletic shorts congregated to kick around a soccer ball.

Liam spoke for a moment, then looked up. He spoke again, then closed the phone. “I need to come back up,” he called.

“I don’t know how to work the door from up here,” Aidan said.

“Then come down.”

Aidan hesitated. Liam had behaved so strangely, at the bar and then again just a few minutes before. Did he want to get involved with this guy?

“Please,” Liam called up.

Aidan had always been a sucker for manners. He went downstairs and opened the door.

“I need a favor,” Liam said. “You have any nicer clothes?”

Aidan was wearing a Tiffany window T-shirt he’d bought at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, cargo shorts and sandals. “Nothing I have will fit you,” he said, as he led the bodyguard back upstairs. “You’re bigger than I am.”

“I’m sure,” he said. “But it’s not for me, it’s for you. I need you to be Charles Carlucci.”

Here we go again, Aidan thought. Was this guy ever going to speak a language he could understand?

“The man I was supposed to protect,” Liam said as they reached the apartment door. The dog, whom Aidan had yet to name, was sitting in the doorway waiting for his return. “He was supposed to be carrying something. My contact says that it wasn’t on his body—which means it may be in his hotel room.”

“What does that have to do with me?”

“I need you to go up to the desk at the Hotel Africa, tell the clerk you were mugged and your ID and room key were stolen. He’ll make you a new key card.”

Drive-Thru Interview with Author Rodolfo Peña

1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:                                          

The brutal murder leads Detective Lombardo to discover a war raging between a cartel that is seeking to legalize drugs and the American agency that would like to stop them.

2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?

Detective Guillermo Lombardo because he is the last of a dying breed: the kind of policeman that believes that “doing the right thing” and seeking “justice for the little guy” is not only his job but his way of life.

3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?

I would develop the secondary characters (the drug lord, the DEA agents, the American counselate members, the Mexican politicians) more. This would allow me to explore the questions of corruption, both the kind brought on by economic gain and hunger for power, the social conditions that lead the young and the uneducated to work for the cartels, the power plays between governments (both the Mexican conservative government as well as the conservative elements of the American government), and the consequences for innocent people of “the drug wars”.

4.) Give us an interesting fun fact about your book or series:

I do not know if can call it a “fun” fact but I would like to add that many of the events of the novel are based on true events. They did not happen in the same sequence but similar things did happened and I was witness to several of them.

5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

You can e-mail me: ropena@gmail.com, we can chat: ropena@Lycos.com or if you are willing you can call me at +33 5 5903-2756 (I live in France).

6.)   What can we expect from you in the future?

There is another “Guillermo Lomardo” book in the works. It is set in Paris and has to do with art confiscated by the Nazis and collaborationist during WWII and the illegal market that has bee developed to sell it through auction houses, and the efforts of survivors and descendants of survivors of the Holocaust to reclaim the art. I also have outlines for two more books in the “Guuillermo Lombardo” series: they are set in Mexico City and in a small border town called Nuevo Laredo. As a break from crime fiction, I plan to do a memoir of meeting and marrying my French wife. I plan to call it “I Married a French Woman, and Other Horror Stories”.

7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

Chapter 1: Victor Disappears

Victor Delgado left the University’s computer center a few minutes past one in the morning. He started his car and pulled out of his private parking spot. As he turned into the main boulevard of the University campus, a car parked in a side street started its engine and slowly pulled out of its parking space a few seconds after Victor’s car went past it.

The traffic was light in the streets of Monterrey at that hour, yet Victor drove slowly, carefully, just as he did everything else in his life. Victor was a methodical young man, and his training as a computer engineer perfectly suited his conscientious, careful manner.

The three men in the car following Victor’s were careful and patient, too. The driver of the car made sure that Victor was unaware that he was being followed; he used whatever other cars came along as shields and as cover.

When Victor turned into Figueroa Avenue, the man sitting in the passenger’s seat of the car that was following Victor’s said, “This is it; cut him off.”

The car with the three men jumped forward in a burst of speed and the driver expertly maneuvered in front of Victor’s car and stopped. Victor tried to avoid hitting the car that had suddenly appeared in front of him, but even at the relatively slow speed at which he was driving, it was impossible: Victor’s car swerved, hit the left-rear side of the car in front of him and broke its back light.

Before he could get out of his car to inspect the damage, the three men jumped out of their car and ran toward Victor’s. Startled, Victor pushed a button to open his window and apologize, but before the glass was halfway down, one of the men opened Victor’s car door, grabbed his arm, and dragged the young man out of the car.

Victor hardly had time to make out the three dark silhouettes grabbing at him before a blow to the back of his head made him lose consciousness.

1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:

Bite This! A Richard Dick Mystery: Private Investigator Richard Dick embarks on a screwball investigation of a werewolf thought to be haunting the vicinity of Wareville , Missouri .

2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?   

Probably Richard Dick himself.  Dick is a bit of a cross between Dashiell Hammett’s “Sam Spade,” and Leslie Nielson’s character in, “The Naked Gun.”

3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?

I would likely lengthen it a bit.  There is a wealth of unexplored material surrounding the storyline that is still lying there, waiting to be picked up.

4.)  Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:

“Bite This!” made the Best Seller List in the Humor category at OmniLit.com.  Kudos to Jay Hartman at Untreed Reads Publishing for making it possible. 

5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

If you’re into fantasy, please see “Vengeance of the Wolves” at Crow’s Nest Magazine, or if you prefer a dark mystery, try “The Gateway to Hell” at thedf_underground.

6.)   What can we expect from you in the future? 

Thank you for asking.  The humorous fantasy, “Flying Solo” will appear any day now at Untreed Reads Publishing and their many associates (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, OmniLit, etc.), and soon afterwards, they’ll bring out another story in the Richard Dick Mystery series.  Untreed Reads is also currently reviewing my recently completed, full-length thriller, “The Navigateur.”

 “Sardines for Breakfast: and Other Common Sense Notions” is coming out in the next issue (Issue V) of the Ampersand Review.  I truly enjoyed writing this humorous, true-to-life “logger’s tale.”

Last, but certainly not least, over at Pine Tree Mysteries, readers can watch for my soon to be released, dark mystery, “Moxotó.”

 

7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

 

            It was hot, a brutally hot July afternoon.  Through my third floor office window, the monotonous Chicago skyline was silhouetted against a yellow haze.  From the corner of my eye, I spotted a furtive movement.  I moved cautiously, avoiding any sudden motion as my hand crept towards the weapon on the edge of my desk.  Finally, I grasped the wire-handled flyswatter as my eyes concentrated upon my intended victim.  My hand swept forward, upward and then downward in a barely discernable blur and the deed was done.  Five.  Five kills.  It had been a spectacularly productive afternoon.

            A commotion in the hallway outside of my office caused me to look up towards my glass door.  “Richard Dick, Private Investigations” was printed on the glass.  I was reading it backwards from inside the room.  I couldn’t make out what it read. 

            The doorknob rattled, the door swung open, and SHE stood there, framed in the doorway.  A delectable fringe benefit associated with the careers of all private dicks is when beautiful, exotic women unexpectedly walk through the door.  This was not to be one of those cases.  In fact, “framed” doesn’t accurately illustrate HER presence in my doorway.  “Wedged” would be more precise.

            Her perfume preceded her entrance into my office, a distinctive fragrance, best described as “Eau de Manure Spreader.”  She oozed into the room, like “The Blob” on its mission to absorb another victim. 

            Her voice was like the sultry screech of a burned-out bearing, as she began, “Mr. Dick, I hate to simply barge into your office without knocking…”

            “That’s quite all right.  Take a seat, and please, call me Dick.”

1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:
 
    ”Clea’s Moon,” a mystery/thriller set in 1940s Los Angeles, just out as an ebook from Untreed Reads. John Ray Horn, a onetime B-movie cowboy actor now in disgrace after a prison term, sets out to find his missing stepdaughter and, in the process, to regain his own self-respect.        
2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?
 
    Joseph Mad Crow, John Ray’s former movie sidekick who now runs a semi-legal gambling casino and employs the ex-movie star as a debt collector. Mad Crow, who grew up on the reservation, is self-made, boisterous, and honorable. He’s the kind of friend everyone could use.
 
3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?
 
    The last name of one of the characters (never mind which one). It sounds stagy to me now. 
 
4.)  Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:
 
For readers who like old movies, the John Ray Horn series is full of references to the Hollywood that used to be. I may drop in the name of a recognizable star, studio, or director. At other times, I’ve taken real-life people and incidents (the Fatty Arbuckle scandal from the Twenties, for example) and given them a fictional treatment. Once I took the name of a Hollywood bookstore from a Raymond Chandler novel. Not many readers caught the reference, but it’s fun when some do, and I get a note that says, “Wasn’t Geiger’s bookstore from “the Big Sleep”?
5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
 
 
6.)   What can we expect from you in the future?
 
    My next print book is “From Blood,” in November, 2010. It’s the story of a young woman who discovers that her birth parents are two of America’s most notorious fugitives, anti-war radicals from the Sixties who went underground after a fatal bombing and never resurfaced. My next ebook will be “While I Disappear,” the second in the John Ray Horn series.
 
7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:
 
    This is from chapter 5, where John Ray encounters his ex-wife for the first time since he went into prison:
 
    He studied her. It was his first good look at in almost three years. She looked fine. No, better than that. Iris had never been a great beauty, but that had not hindered her. Men had always responded to a sense of urgency about her, a kind of hunger that translated into sexuality. It also drove her to fiercely protect and nurture her daughter. And those who knew her well could discern another hunger in Iris, the need for comfort and security — even wealth. Horn had seen hints of it during their marriage and knew he could never satisfy that side of her. Now, apparently, she had a man who could.
    Her pale brown hair under her tiny hat was a little longer now, gathered in two large waves at the side, then allowed to fall down the back, where it pillowed out softly on her shoulders. The same two nervous tendons stood out on her neck. He couldn’t quite make out the wide-set brown eyes behind her dark glasses, but the sharp cheekbones were the same, along with that full upper lip she shared with Clea. And she still wore Evening in Paris, a scent he’d always liked. He still hated her, of course. 
1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:
 
Off Flesh, gay horror. ‘A grey man, living a grey life, goes to a very grey convention. And meets Mr Wyndham. Sometimes grey is safer.’
2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?
 
Hmm, ‘Off Flesh’ doesn’t have a great deal of characters to choose from, but I’ll have to for the lead (he of no name), since he’s a bit of a fool. Looking to escape his mundane life by having an affair. Worst thing in the world to do another I think, and thus he deserves everything he gets. He’s very human, though. In turns weak, brave, and a self-preserving coward.
3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novella, what would it be?  Why?
 
Make it bigger, more intense. Because there is much more scope to explore, so I guess there could a sequel.
4.)  Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:
 

It was originally set in a macabre version of Fawlty Towers (the setting of the eponymous BBC TV sitcom from the 1970s).
5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
 
Find me on goodreads.com or facebook.
6.)   What can we expect from you in the future?
 
More short stories and novellas, and the first book in my cross-genre saga, Seeker.
7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:
 

‘I’d rather we took the stairs, actually,’ I said just as she pressed a thumb against the call button.

‘It’s only a lift,’ Meg said with a small laugh.  ‘Do you have claustrophobia?’

I shook my head.  ‘No, it’s not that.’

‘What is it, then?’

How could I explain to her? There was something very wrong about this lift.  I had no idea what but I instinctively knew something was up.

1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:

Dancing with Lions, published by Untreed Reads. It’s literary historical genre. Michal, daughter of Saul, is in love with David. Because of her father, David is forced to flee – but what will happen when he returns to claim her?

2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?

In this story, Paltiel, Michal’s first husband. He’s an honorable man and gets a very raw deal.

3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?

It’s a long short story rather than a novel, but if it could have had a happier ending for Paltiel, I would have given him it!

4.)  Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:

It’s only one of my series of stories focusing on women of the bible as I thought it was high time for biblical women to step up and show their menfolk what they’re made of!

5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

I can be found at http://www.annebrooke.com/ and at www.facebook.com/annebrooke. I also keep a journal at http://annebrooke.blogspot.com/

6.)   What can we expect from you in the future?

Coming up are one fantasy novel (The Gifting), one gay psychological thriller (A Dangerous Man), plus two erotic short stories (The Boilerman and The Bride; and Tuluscan Six and the Time Circle), and one fantasy short story, Creative Accountancy for Beginners (from Untreed Reads)

7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

‘Michal.’ My father’s voice was like grit in a stream. ‘I have news for you. Something that will make you very happy.’

            He moved closer and the bitter smell of dried sweat swept over me. I clenched my jaw, willing myself not to flinch as one rough finger touched my face, moving down to stroke my neck.

            ‘Yes, Michal, I have something good to tell you. Would you like to hear it?’

            ‘Of course, my king.’

            ‘And you shall.’ His hand lingered for a moment on my skin before cupping my breast through the cloak’s soft fabric. ‘You’re nearly of age now. When did that happen, daughter?’

(From Dancing with Lions)

1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:

Quest for Nobility” is a science fiction action adventure story.  When their parents are murdered, royal Otharian twins, Darius and Dyla Telkur, find themselves at the mercy of an evil mastermind bent on their destruction. Framed for murder, they must run for their lives and  flee to the strange planet Earth, but will that be far enough to outrun a telekinetic assassin?

 2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?

Eclasius Jortac, the twins’ friend, because this character changes and grows the most in the book from a shy introverted teenager to a powerful telekinetic.  

3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?

My co-author and I are pretty happy with the book, but we are always open to reader feedback.

4.)  Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:

The most interesting fact about our series is that we use diamonds in a unique and entirely new way from how they are used on Earth.  The Otharians have discovered another intrinsic “C” within the nature of the stones: conductivity. This fifth “C” fuels their PSI powers and the bigger the crystal, the more powerful your abilities become especially the telekinetics.  A powerful 10K crystal will open an portal that allows travel between planets.  

5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

We have a website,http://martinandsmall.com/ and my blog Two Ends of the Pen is here http://twoendsofthepen.blogspot.com/.  All the information about our writing can be found in both places.

6.)   What can we expect from you in the future?

“The Crystal Facade,” book 2 in the same series is available for sale now.  We have started a new fantasy book about an assassin, a witch and a noble family that we hope to complete in 2011.

7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

“I told you this would work, Merlinius Telkur said.

His partner Vivienne shook her head at his boasting.  They had been running for days from the Vogdo hunting party and she was at the end of her patience.  Their traveling crystal was gone and they had no way to return to Otharia or even contact them.  There were so few of the Telkur expedition that escaped the attack and now they were stuck on this primitive planet Earth. 

“Save your breath, Merlinius,” Vivienne shot back.  “Just concentrate on holding your shield until those bastards out there leave and we can get out of here.”

 “I know that,” Merlinis replied, exasperated at Vivienne’s curt command.  “You make sure your own shield holds.  If they detect our life signs, this ruse will be for nothing and we’ll be on the run again.”

Vivienne sighed heavily.  At the moment, she didn’t know which was worse, Merlinius’ bravado, or being stranded on a primitive planet with the Vogdo killers outside the cave.

1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:

Not What She Seems, a Romantic Suspense novel.  Steven Ashton, a billionaire from New York, and Emily Grant, on the run from the law… and when they meet he can’t help falling for her.

2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?

This fluctuates with my mood, but I’ll pick Steven Ashton.  He unknowingly gets entangled in Emily’s complicated life, and therefore becomes the target of a mad man.

3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?

I am pretty satisfied with my novel the way it is.  I did spend four years changing things, so I got it out of my system.

4.)  Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:

I wrote Not What She Seems in one week.  At least, the first draft.  Then it took me four years to revise and make it what it is today.  :o )

5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

My website is www.victorinelieske.com.

6.)   What can we expect from you in the future?

The driving force of my writing is the human relationship.  My stories all tend to have a clean romantic theme.

7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

       Richard threw his cigarette out the window and gripped the steering wheel.  Emily could tell he was anxious, and didn’t know what to expect from him.  Richard started hollering.  “Did you hear that?  Did you hear what they just said on the radio?”  Emily was silent.  She knew he didn’t want to hear from her.  “They just said that Steven Ashton has been reported missing for three days!  How much did that guy at the hotel look like Steven Ashton?”

       “I don’t know,” she said.  “It wasn’t him, Richard.”

       “Shut up.  I want to hear this.”  He turned the radio up louder.
