Chris Jay Becker's World Domination Tour...
What? Oh, nevermind. Anyway, my name is Chris. I recently published my first Mystery/Crime novel "Death in the Fast Lane" featuring LAPD Det. T.S. 'King' Leary. Look me up on Amazon.
"Fast Lane" recently spent a few days on the Amazon Kindle bestseller lists in the UK, Germany, and France. This fulfills my lifelong desire to be more popular in both Germany and France than I am in the U.S.... like a Crime Writer version of Jerry Lewis AND David Hasselhoff. Hey, a boy can dream, right?
Seriously, though, as my author bio always says, ad nauseum, I am a fourth-generation Angeleno, the only child of two heroin-addicts/ex-cons, raised partially by my Vaudeville comedian grandpa. I'm a veteran stand-up comic, an ASCAP songwriter and music publisher, a music journalist, and I've written a screenplay or three. I'm also working on a comic memoir about my dysfunctional family, tentatively titled "Our Mamas' Hooker Names."
I sincerely look forward to meeting all of you here, and reading your work.
