Something About Me and My Book:
IN THE WEEDS is a humorous ‘70s tale of gas, grass, ass…and Vietnam. Slats Kisov is an Air Force pilot who returns to the US a changed man, suffering from undiagnosed PTSD. Slats just thinks he’s addicted to the adrenaline of combat flying, so for excitement he starts smuggling the occasional load of marijuana into Florida from the Bahamas. He is aided in this venture by the Morales family, moral people…who just also happen to be money launderers, gun molls, and poetry-spouting bulimic Cuban pot farmers.

Slats generally enjoys good fortune as he strolls through life. But his luck takes an appalling turn when Bobby Ray Pistle, police chief of Farth, suspects that Slats is running the same weed he's been smoking. Pistle’s bulb burns too dimly to find proof, but when the chief discovers his lusty ex has fallen for Slats, it’s time to fish or cut bait.

IN THE WEEDS, Civil Rights

Fifty-five years ago this month, Bull Connor directed the police department of Birmingham, Alabama to sic police dogs on peaceful protesters. He also ordered the fire department to spray protesters with high-pressure hoses. These tactics backfired on Connor – widespread news coverage of these outrages brought public condemnation down on Connor’s head, ensuring the passage of the Civil Rights Act only one year later.

My humorous novel IN THE WEEDS uses a cut-rate Bull Connor in the…

Literary Review, IN THE WEEDS

I received a literary review from Martha A. Cheves (BookTown Review), who put a big smile on my face. 

"I sat on Bian's bed, staring out the only window in the tiny room.  She'd been looking west, toward the Everglades.  The fleeting patches of sun a couple days ago probably would have seemed familiar to her, perhaps like her memories of Vietnam.  Here, she'd known nothing but…
