More About the Author

Award winning author D.B.Tarpley was born in the year of our lord, Al Yankovic, nineteen hundred and seventy two. The son of a poor immigrant philanthropist, Mr. Tarpley got his start writing dialogue for the imaginary friends of imagination deficient kids on the Lower East Side. He soon graduated to soap operas and quickly became the head writer on such daytime hits as 'Old Rich White Balls', 'The Bold and the Moderately Attractive', and the Hindu marketed 'One Life to Live? You Must Be Joking!' for which he was awarded a Daytime Stanley Cup by a dazed and confused NHL. D.B.Tarpley does not have as many books on the New York Times Best Seller's List as Stephen King but he is pretty sure he can take him in a leg wrestling match. In 1991 D.B.Tarpley invented the word Phoenixidelicaliaphestosterone. It has not caught on.

'The Death of Love' is D.B.Tarpley's latest book.

"...I am telling everyone and anyone who will listen to take a look at this book!...
It's a page turner... I have NO IDEA where Tarpley is going with this!... Tarpley
must be a genius, he surprises in (both) big and little ways." - five star
customer review on Amazon

"Went in with an "I'll give it a chance" and didn't come up for air until
completed. I didn't (even) do that for The Strain... Take it from me, drop your
dollars and enjoy the self generated visuals." - four star customer review on
Amazon

D.B.Tarpley has a Masters Degree in Baiting from Pullman University as well
as an Associate's Degree in Scatology from Brown University.

Over the years D.B. has been discovered and recognized by the Lewis N. Clark committee for creative mastery; in addition to this D.B. was recently tossed the Paul Reubens Fellowship for excellence in self awareness. He currently Summers in Manitowoc, Wisconsin; and Winters in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. In addition to writing, D.B. is an internationally acclaimed adult diaper model/ pastry chef. His work has been featured in 'Pee-n-Poop Wear Quarterly' as well as 'Dem Some Fine Damn Muffins Magazine.' His only words to readers everywhere are "Leave the pages bloody." and "Have an amazing ass day."... oh, and the occasional "Cheese! What? You don't like cheese? You are dismissed."

If I had to sum up what D.B. Tarpley brings to fiction in a single word, it would be "unapologetic".

In "Lick the Razor", Tarpley is given free reign over your mind, letting loose pulse-throbbing stories that shirk the conventions of the craft for something fresh, direct, and intense. He has no qualms delving into the darkness of humankind, often throwing his characters into terrifying situations and exposing their weaknesses like a nude in an overcoat. With sharp and witty prose, he scrapes nails across chalkboards, shackles us with the spiders in dank cells, drags us through the nightmare worlds of reality, and even has a bit of fun along the way. For better or worse, Tarpley's work will nest in your mind like a parasite, leaving you thinking long after you put the book down.

This is not for everyone. From the outset, Tarpley shows little concern for what might be expected in fiction. He does have a gift for stripping away the fail-safes of societal standards and expectations, revealing the bleeding pulp of a good story beneath, but this, and the graphic, unorthodox nature of the work, may not appeal to some. "Lick the Razor" is most certainly not your grandfather's fiction. He's not out to impress MFA graduates or make it into a professor's lecture with this collection; he's here to tell some stories in a way that only he can.

Overall, if you like brutally honest, dark fiction with an even darker sense of humor, then this is for you. If you're squeamish or easily offended, I highly advise that you keep browsing.

A very good read with 15 short stories that you can pick up and put down (although you won't want to) at your leisure. Delving into the mind of D.B. Tarpley might be a scary endeavor but completely worth it. Your wildest imaginings of what goes bump in the night has nothing on this - be prepared to be scared, amused, and disturbed as you ride along on a wild journey from story to story. Well worth the cost of admission!

D.B. truly knows how to get in your head, I literally could not put it down! This book will take you to some of the darkest, scariest places in your mind and I guarantee you wont want it to end. Do yourself a favor and buy it, you won't be disappointed!

I've read pretty much everything this author has written over the years, and with this new release I can tell that he's honed his craft even further than he had before. He is unapologetic in his delivery, and has a style that unique and all his own. There are twists and turns in the story lines that take the reader in places he/she would never have imagined. And with so many short stories, you can pick it up or put it down whenever you like (although you won't want to). If you're a horror fiction fan, then this book is definitely for you.

DB drags you through these disturbing and winding tales one by one. You will want to stop... but won't be able to. He has such a grip on your mind, and keeps you on the edge in a decisive manner. Each character has his own voice and you'll hear it ringing in your ears long after the story is finished. Definitely worth the read.
