David L. Hoof Starts A New Series This Week! "Borrowed Time"
The stranger's name is Sanchez. The envelope he presents each contact offers a choice: yes or no. But they cannot reject the terms, or even hesitate. Indecision can be dangerous, even fatal. For once in their lives, their destiny is completely in their hands, and the hands of their life clock are relentlessly ticking.
The award-winning author of screenplays, short stories and seven published novels sold in thirty-five countries, David L. Hoof has also written nonfiction and written scientific articles and papers appearing in peer-reviewed professional journals that cover areas as diverse as nanotechnology to nuclear proliferation. He was taught creative writing with the Writers Digest School and at Georgetown University. His novels and stories include satires, thrillers, suspense mysteries, historical mysteries, action adventure, horror and dabblings in the paranormal . Three novels, the ecohorror Landfill, the rollickingly irreverent satire Triple Jeopardy, and the historical mystery, Little Gods, will join several intriguing short stories in Trestle Press’s impressive 2012 line-up. Deeply interested in the music and magic of the English language, he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Facebook. Among his friends and inspirations he counts William Goldman, Elmore “Dutch” Leonard, Don DeLillo, Cormac McCarthy, James Lee Burke and Dennis Lehane. He lives with his wife, Marsha, in Washington, DC, and is at work on his next novel, which should be complete by mid April, this year..
