Murder by Moonlight Video 2 - Novel Noir

3.5 stars
621 12/03/12


I'm a writer of period action/adventure/sci-fi novels, most notably the Rose Petals and Gun Powder series, and more recently, MechaNation, a NanoPunk thriller. When not doing that, I'm a backyard engineer working on three hands worth of projects. I've also dug myself out of my 3D rendering hole, but still find time to sneak back on occasion. You can occasionally find me with a strong cigar in my mouth, thinking up my next chapter in a cloud of blissful smoke.

Perhaps my greatest accomplishment (not in the fiction genre), I became a new parent on 8 September, 2012.

Favorite Movies

Dark City, Double Indemnity, Once Upon a Time in the West/America, Fringe (TV series), Godfather trilogy, Singin' in the Rain, John Woo's Hard Boiled , Touch of Evil, Heat, Inception, Batman (1st two Burton films & Nolan trilogy)... LOTS more!


I wouldn't go so far to say I'm a cinema nerd, but I do watch an awful lot of movies. I love a good film noir (thank you pre-turmoil Netflix!). Also, a great action film whets the appetite quite often, as well as the dark, cerebral genre.
