In which I guest blog at Andrew Nette’s Pulp Curry. Nette is the author of Ghost Money, a crime novel set in Cambodia, 1996. I’ve yet to read but it awaits me on my Kindle. In my guest blog, I wax on about my entrance in the world of crime fiction. Here is an excerpt.
- About a decade ago, I was like a lot of writers: I talked about writing but I didn’t scribble a single story. Not a sentence, not a dependent clause, not a word. Then at some point I read a notice from Mississippi Review calling for postmodern noir stories. I had no idea what the hell they meant by that, but I was intrigued by the opportunity, and also my girlfriend at the time wanted me to do something with whatever meager talent she perceived in me.
