Editorial Reviews


The reader grows more slack-jawed at the sheer magnitude of horror lying just beneath the surface of this ordinary (if crumbling) city, this ordinary (if dysfunctional) family. --Christine Borne, the Cleveland Review

From the Author

Hungry Rats is a contemporary noir in the tradition of Cornell Woolrich, Patricia Highsmith, Derek Raymond, Thomas Harris, and more.  I wrote it in 2003 as a one-off foray into 2nd person writing and serial killer stories.  The draft was done in about three weeks, and not only did it document teenager Meredith Malady's attack on the notorious "Rat Man" in Flint, Michigan, but eventually channeled a good bit of Michigan's history in the lumber and automotive industries.  
The story wouldn't let me let it go. 
 My submission helped me get into my MFA Program at the New School, where I studied under Jeffery Allen, Shelley Jackson, David Gates, Darcey Steinke, Helen Schulman, and Mark Bibbins.  Two years later, Hungry Rats was my MFA thesis.  In 2010 I incorporated the Gothic Funk Press to publish this and other work, and Hungry Rats was released on schedule in September 2010 with praise from Jeffery Renard Allen, Arlene Malinowski, and Leila Sales.
While the publication eerily coincided with the hunt for Elias Abuelazam, the Flint Serial Stabber (a coincidence covered by the Flint Journal) the two events are completely unrelated.  I am proud to have written this experimental noir novel, and am very grateful for all of the help I received along the way.
