Geoffrey Neil, his lovely wife and talkative son live in Los Angeles with a useless, ungrateful fish that Geoffrey threatens at least once daily. Writing novels is a grueling process for Geoffrey, but he can't break the writing obsession even though he likes sleep, TV and people more than keyboards. His stories use disturbing implications more than graphic depictions --a tactic many readers find equally assaulting on the senses. Geoffrey's overactive imagination and genuine fear of almost everything are tools that help him write novels, but also get him wound tighter than an eight-day clock. His wife calls him the mayor of Stress Town. Geoffrey is busy drafting his fourth novel, Prey for Us. Go try one of his books. It will make him feel better ... and that could save a pathetic fish.
If you're a crime victim and the justice system has failed you, Prey for Us can make things right.
