BLOOD MOON is my new novel about the Pleasant Valley Feud, the bloodiest land war in the history of the West, in which my Arizona ancestors, both Mexican and American, played a prominent role. Soon to be published by Little Machines Press/Roots Digital Media:
WITH LITTLE GIRLS
Let me introducemyself. I'm a writer with four novels under my belt. All of them are based on either my own direct experience, or that of my Anglo-Mexican family, which has been resident in the Southwest since the land was stolen from its native inhabitants. The titles of my novels are as follows: THE RAP, SELENA, THE ALAMO TREE and BLOOD MOON. THE RAP is now available at http://amzn.to/1E2N6Im. SELENA is now at http://amzn.to/1JGHkNo. And BLOOD MOON will soon be published by Little Machines Press/Roots Digital Media.
THE RAP is my gritty Street/Prison novel about a good-hearted prison guard caught between a black revolutionary leader, a paid assassin, and a beautiful, duplicitous Hawaiian girl.
“THE RAP is the best novel I’ve tasted in many seasons.” – Philadelphia Inquirer
“A bawdy, rowdy and powerful novel – a blockbuster.” – Fort Worth Press
“THERE ISN’T A PAGE OF THE RAP THAT WILL LET YOU OFF…IT IS INCREDIBLY CYNICAL, SARCASTIC, PROFANE AND BRUTAL…YOU CAN’T TURN YOUR BACK ON IT. YOU CAN’T FORGET IT." – Chicago Tribune
SELENA is my tragic novel about a beautiful Latina farmworker union organizer named Selena Cruz. Spanning a quarter of a century, from the early 1950s until the 1970s, and set against the social and political turmoil of the San Joaquin Valley in that watershed era, this sexy, historical romance traces the interlocking destinies of a haunting young woman who believes she’s been chosen for greatness, and the two desperate men who have been lifelong rivals for her love.

"There is not an area of novel writing where the author is not scarily gifted. His plotting is intricate but never rings false or obtrudes. His descriptions of places, scenes, machinery, processes, illuminate like flares. His ear for dialogue can handle English, Mexican-American and 'pocho' Spanish. His narrative pace is swift. His style is joyous and free. His feeling for character is mind-boggling. His amazing eye makes every page fresh. NO AMERCIAN WRITER IN YEARS HAS PRODUCED SUCH A READABLE, DEEP AND FULLY REALIZED NOVEL!" - San Diego Union
