Ten years ago, I got "The Call." That is, my agent called to say that I had been offered a contract for my Felix Gomez series. Five vampire novels, a graphic novel, some short fiction, and numerous ghost-written books later, I'm still here. In the meantime I've had some adventures and met a lot of great people, artists and writers, mostly.
My big lesson in this journey? Man, is there a big gulf between my world and reality. And so what? I prefer my delusions. The truth would be an unseemly thing for a professional liar like myself.
