Wanton Regard
Geoffrey Neil, his beautiful wife and talkative son live in Los Angeles with a useless, ungrateful fish that Geoffrey threatens at least once daily.
Writing novels has proven to be a grueling process for Geoffrey, but he can't break the obsession even though he likes sleep, TV and people more than keyboards. His stories use disturbing implications more than graphic depictions to provide a satisfying scare with little blood--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. Go try one of his books. It will make him feel better ... and that could save a pathetic fish.
