Mason used to be an enforcer, ensuring that those magic
practitioners without a moral compass walked the straight and narrow.
But now he just wants to keep his head down, play guitar, and maintain
a low profile with Lou, his magical canine companion. But Mason is down
on his luck, and when a job with a large payout comes along, he finds
the offer hard to resist-not knowing it might mean sacrificing what
both man and his best friend hold most dear.
About The Author
I grew up in New York City. After a stint at the University of
Chicago (I didn't graduate -- I had things to do) I traveled around the
country and ended up in San Francisco. Drugs and rock 'n roll. Did some
light shows for bands, learned to play guitar -- the usual stuff. I
forgot all about writing.
A few years later, while working at a ski lodge in Alta, Utah, I
found I was getting bored. So I looked around for the most unlikely
thing I could think of, and joined the Salt Lake City Police
Department. I only planned to do it for a year, just for the
experience. That year turned into seven.
When I left, I had enough material to fill a book. So I wrote one, a
police thriller. Then another.
Now I'm writing urban fantasy -- a series starring Mason, a musician
and reluctant practitioner of magic, and Lou, his dog. Well, sort of a
dog -- more like a familiar, known as an Ifrit. The first two in the
series are Dog Days and New Tricks; the third will be on the shelves
I split my time these days between Alta, Utah, and San Francisco,
and when I'm not working or writing, play guitar with my band in SF,
