Novels & Novellas

1. What happens to cause a man to give up on everything he knows and everything he feels? How can an aging alcoholic with a seemingly airtight rationalization system, living next to a dumpster, with his prostitute girlfriend who is forty years younger than him, find redemption? Nameless the Hero is a street-level tale of people at the bottom, a redemption story that moves from the page into your brain. We watch Nameless, a man who refuses to have a name any longer, move sideways and circular to claw his way up from the bottom while Eddie Talbot moves from being a social worker to a murderer of the homeless. Along the way we meet characters and career criminals and outsiders who somehow manage to get inside your heart.
