Books We Love's Tantalizing Talent ~ Author Stuart R. West
Hey, gang. Stuart R. West here. I was tasked to say interesting things about myself. But the
problem is I don’t find myself particularly interesting.
I suppose I could talk about how I’m an immense film
geek/fan. And the sadness that occurred when my wife and I recently had to
throw out my 10,000 plus videotape collection. Stupidly, I kept them in the
basement. Mold happens! Particularly in Kansas basements.
Moldy. Kinda like my gig several years ago in a performance
art/funk/country/comedy group. Every performance I stood on stage in pajamas
wagging my saxophone around. Sometimes to applause, mostly to puzzled looks and
Again. Not very interesting. Which is why I write. Lots of
fantastic worlds out there to be explored. Here, check my books out:
Ghosts of Gannaway:Ghost whispers echo through the mines of
Gannaway. They have a story to tell. It’s the story of a town torn apart by
greed, pollution and vanity, by racial discord between the Native Americans and
the invading miners, by the Great Depression, by the violent union strikes of
the 1930’s. That’s not all that brought Gannaway to its knees, though. Not by a
long shot. Because something—else—lives in the deserted tunnels of the mine,
something dark and evil. Something that breathes life into the Ghosts of
Secret Society:Leon Garber has his reasons for ridding the
world of abusive people, call it justifiable homicide. Opportunity comes
knocking from Like-Minded Individuals, Inc., a global company fulfilling the
needs of clients: new identities, security, and even lists of potential
"projects." But let's not call it "serial killing" (such a
nasty term). For Leon, it's a dream come true. However, LMI's put a target on
Leon's back, with no indication of why. LMI, the police, sanctioned hit men,
and a vicious psychopath are after Leon. He collides with other Like-Minded
Individuals: The Good Samaritan Killer, The Mad Doctor, Donnie and Marie (don't
ask). Heads are chopped, dropped, and swapped as Leon fights for his life. But
nothing will keep him from finishing his current project. Not even the chance
to fall in love. Sometimes a killer business idea is just that. Killer.
Bad Day in a Banana
Hammock: Zach wakes up with no
memory, no phone, and no clothes except his stripper g-string. And oh yeah!
There’s that pesky naked dead guy in bed next to him. Problem is Zach's not
gay. Or a murderer. At least, he doesn't think so. Only one person can help
him, his sister, Zora. Of course Zora's got problems of her own—she has three
kids at home and is eight month's pregnant with the fourth. So she’s a bit
cranky. But that’s not going to stop her from helping her brother. With kids in
tow, the siblings set how to find the true killer, clear Zach's name, and
reassure Zach he's not gay.
and Coming Soon
There you have it. Murder, mayhem, comedy, suspense,
thrills, chills, horror, dog-gone basic good humanity (and bad. The way
villains flow.). Much more interesting than my Kansan life.
