I’m thrilled to announce that my first Jay Desmarteaux novel, Bad Boy Boogie, will be published by Down & Out Books in 2017.

When Jay Desmarteaux walked out the gates of Rahway Prison, the sun hit his face like air on a fresh wound. The breeze smelled different, charged somehow.

When Jay Desmarteaux walks out of prison after serving 25 years for the murder of a vicious bully, he seeks his family and follows the advice of his convict mentor: the best revenge is living well.
