The Whole Bleeding Lot is my second novel, albeit my only good one. At least I think so. Its story concerns a young journalist named Ford who works for a small news publication in Dallas. He’s not happy with his situation, so he decides to invent a few stories to sell some copy. Things don’t turn out the way Ford hoped they would, naturally, and he has to choose what he will do with a powerful, mystifying and dark talent that somehow falls into his lap. It’s a naturalistic work that breaks down fiction and reality, the idea of authorship and the violent desires within the public that draw us to what we buy, read, watch, discuss, etc. It was a joy to write, and hopefully an entertaining read.
