Smuggling Plane
My novel, The Smuggler's Blues, is now available. It's a rollicking, fast-paced action-adventure story about

smuggling newbies trying to put together a deal while being constantly distracted by alcohol, sex and pot. A funny, riveting page-turner with an unexpected twist of romance.
