HERO

It seems like years since J.F. Gonzalez and I penned this brutal little tale together. Well, it has been years, but now it's back in print! On the eve of the publication of our second collaboration, THE KILLINGS, HERO has been rereleased as a trade paperback from Deadite Books. If you haven't read it, get it! Here's a brief synopsis:



Adelle Smith has lived her entire life for the betterment of mankind. A Civil Rights Activist in the Sixties and Seventies, she has spent most of her adult life attending marches, giving speeches, and lending a hand to anyone in need.
But on the very evening she is to be acknowledged with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her humanitarian efforts, a stroke leaves her partially paralyzed and unable to speak. Now Adelle's in the care of a ruthless hospice nurse, who sees not a hero before her, but the cause of her many hardships growing up as a child of interracial parents, someone who decides to give Adelle her very own brand of "Physical Therapy" consisting of pain and suffering, mental cruelty and torture.
And now, after a lifetime of helping others, Adelle needs help, quickly, before another round of brutal treatment snuffs out her life.

Available now at amazon.com!
