Todd Robinson of the almighty THUGLIT gave me my “big break.” He published one of my first shorts, and this short led to me landing an agent. That’s why I’m honored to have a story in the final issue of THUGLIT, appropriately titled LAST WRITES. It’s a story called “Flip the Record,” about a couple senior citizens who deserve more than what their assisted living community is dishing out to them on the daily.
I’m bummed to no end to see THUGLIT just end like this. But if it has to, at least the mean machine is going out with one final, middle finger issue. It’s been an honor, Todd. All hail Big Daddy Thug.
Kicking June off right! I’ve got a new short-short up at Shotgun Honey. It’s called “Kid Cub Has No Chill” and it’s set in a Denny’s – though I never actually say that. I’ve just got a thing for scenes in diners.
Really excited to say I’ve got an article in the new issue of Cinema Retro – the best magazine around devoted to films of the ’60s and ’70s. My piece is a gushing tribute to one of my all time favorites, The Friends of Eddie Coyle.
Cinema Retro #35 is available at finer newsstands and through their website. Get yourself a copy and savor the retro goodness.
Yo! I’ve got a few short stories set to be published soon and (hopefully) news on This Thing We Have. Until then…
