Dear Reader,

I wrote THE DEAD RUN because I'm a fan of exciting, unpredictable, well-plotted stories with mythological underpinnings; I dig books driven by voice and character; and I love novels fueled by prose that's beautiful, muscular, and rhythmic. The thing is, you don't usually get all that in a single book and I don't see any reason you shouldn't. I've always enjoyed exploring new parameters, figuring out the rules and how to innovate within that structure — hell, I wrote Go the Fuck to Sleep to see if I could tell a story in an ABCB rhyme scheme.

The United States/Mexican border has always fascinated me, as a kind of liminal space in American life, where everything blurs and sharpens at the same time. I knew I wanted to set this supernatural thriller there — in this place where worlds collide.
