On Crime Fiction and Drumming

I’m back over at Crimespree Magazine today with an article about a few drummers in the crime fiction commit—including myself.

“Aspiring authors are often told to write what they know, but the collision of percussion and prose goes much deeper for me. I joined my first real band when I was 16-years-old, a C student in a band with three brainy punks. We hadn’t been playing together very long when the lead guitarist handed me a Kurt Vonnegut book at a rehearsal. I was too embarrassed to tell him that I never really read for fun, so I took the book and gave it a try.”

You can read the article, Crime Beats, right HERE.
