My story really isn't all that different than other writers. I grew up loving books. I spent a lot of time daydreaming. I wondered how everyone else in class seemed to know what to do when I didn't even remember the teacher saying anything.
And there were many voices in my head.
Apparently, I also lean to the left when taking pictures.

Killing the Man: Black Edition
It starts with the violent murders of three white upstanding professionals; three crimes stark in their symbolism. The first victim is hung from a tree, iron shackles around his neck and wrists. The second is burned alive in a white hood and robe. The third, staked through with a wooden cross.
Someone is sending a message, one that calls back to a dirty time in our nation's history, but what does it all mean? Rick Killing has no idea. He's a man of failed promise who let his life slip off track and now only wants to get his own house in order. But as the murders continue, he finds that the focus is on him. Why? Is he the next target, or the next reason?
To answer those high-stakes questions, to reclaim the life he wants, Rick will have to go straight through men with plans for a new, mad world order; men who kill for cold purpose. It ends with a challenge to everything Rick has ever held close and a threat to the lives of those nearest to him.

The Killing Face
In 1999, Detective “Arch” White - young, black and proud - walks into the Chicago Police Department as the victor in a discrimination lawsuit to earn his badge. His motivations for engaging in such courtroom tactics are hidden underneath the surface, personal and intense. The champion for his cause was Noah Bell, the man who would bring harmony to a racially segregated city, a saint working to make the world a better place for black, white and everyone in between.
But when Bell is found murdered, the victim of a vicious gang beating, Arch is handed his first case. He owes Bell justice and avengement, to prove that a great man was not killed by the very people he served. The rookie detective plunges forward, and in the process uncovers a hidden plot to which Bell served as a mere pawn.
His hunt for the truth will bring him into the orbit of others intent on changing the world for the new millennium. And these people like to kill in specific and spectacular ways.
