Spotlight On Indie Author alan zacher
After many years of being a "struggling" actor in LA, I turned to writing. I have had two novels published: "I'm No P. I." and "A Ghoulish Good Time." I have had MS for serval years now; I know physical and mental pain; so I need much laughter to endure it. Hopefully, my novels do just that--give much laughter.
Here are my books
|I'M NO P. I.|
I’m No P.I. brings a 21st century point of view to the humorous side of noir detective fiction. After all, where else but noir fiction can a 56 year old unemployed alcoholic, who still lives with his mother, solve a crime the authorities are convinced has already been solved? It is Christmas time and Tom Mayor has just played a joke on his eight-six year old mother, Lill, Tom, who still lives at home and hasn’t worked in years, announces he is going into the private detective business. To prove his new found skill, Tom discloses the killer in advance of the end of the Thin Man, impressing his elderly mother. Tom thought all of this was funny, especially since his mother cannot remember the end of the movie she has seen countless times. Yet, in typical fashion for Tom, the whole scheme backfires on him. The next morning, ever the good mother, Lill finds Tom his first client , Claire Peterson, the dying elderly woman next door. Claire wants to know the truth about her great-granddaughter’s murder and Tom is just the man for the case. Failure, frustration, and near death do not deter Tom as he solves the case, in Thin Man style.
|Murder, Vampires and Leprechauns|
Murder, Vampires and Leprechauns is a novel of three short stories of suspense, action and murder—and, yes, all of them have much humor. In Burgermen, Tom Mayors—a fifty-six-year-old man who still lives at home and hates work of any kind—unbeknownst to his mother quits yet another job, a clerk in a grocery-store. The manager is so angry with him for quitting without giving notice that he threatens to kill him and begins stalking him by phone every night. In the second story, Damn Leprechauns, Tom—because of his mother’s constant pestering—has joined the detective agency of cranky, retired, Homicide Detective James Hurts. They take a case of helping a young man and woman in trouble, only to find out that this young couple is in trouble because they have stolen the pot of gold from some leprechauns. Because of Tom and Jim’s own greed and wanting to keep the gold, the leprechauns kidnap Tom’s mother, Lill. Tom and Jim must come up with a sharp plan to rescue Tom’s mother. In the third story, Hurts’ Christmas Present, Tom has quit the agency and Hurts is on his own. It’s a few days before Christmas, and Hurts takes the case of very precocious, stubborn eleven-year-old girl, Amanda, whose Mother has been arrested for stealing $20,000.00 from her place of employment. During the investigation, Hurts discovers that the mother was framed by three of the six board-members of the company. All the board-members are vampires. Hurts must do battle with the three board-members to free Amanda’s mother from jail.
|A Ghoulish Good Time|
This book is three "spooky" tales. The first one is of a burned-out, old, police detective who almost becomes a victim himself of a demon that whispers into its victim's ear of his/her innermost fears. The second story is of a second virgin birth in our time. Jesus bowed down to Satan the first time, and that changed our whole world. The world is ruled by Satan, and God gives man a chance with this new Mary. This story is full of giants, sword fights and man's salvation. The final story is a comedy of a very inept, wannbe private eye who while trying to save a girl's life, becomes involved with the Mafia, vampires and keeps peeing in his pants when scared--which is oftened.
