As Valentine’s Day approaches, come hear me talk about Real Crime & True Love at the LA Breakfast Club on February 8 at 7am (breakfast first; talk at 8). The things we do for love? Some are good and some are very, very bad – and the archives tell us all about the Rose Murder, the Death Luncheon and the romantic pigeon.

 

It’s the 70th anniversary of the The Black Dahlia – read my article about it: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38513320

 

Hurrah! Gourmet Ghosts 2 is available on Amazon, and is in stores across L.A (see Where To Buy). It got this AMAZING review from the Dwarf + Giant blog:

It’s like going on a f*cked up city tour guided by the ghost of Raymond Chandler or a thought-form entity from the mind of James Ellroy.

Read the whole review here.

We had great fun at our recent events too…
