The Medallion Murders
Biografía del autor
I am what you would call a jack of all trades. Salesman, cook, delivery driver, painter, sanitation, fork lift operator, teacher, director, actor, stage combat choreographer and producer, among other things. I was a San Francisco cab driver back in the 80s. I drove nights for over three years. Meanwhile, I was fresh out of College and trying to figure out how to kickstart my career as an actor and director. I founded Spectrum Theater and we did a number of productions – The Curse of the Starving Class, The Lover and All Men are Whores, A Flag to Fly, Story Theater and some others - some of which I directed, some I produced and acted in. The driving supported the theater. Eventually, I found that artists career and ended up leaving driving behind. I did several seasons as an actor playing some pretty juicy roles with the California and Oregon Shakespeare Festivals where I also found a love of stage combat and teaching. I had acting and directing gigs, around this time, at the Portland Center Stage, San Jose Stage Company, PCPA and the Kern Shakespeare Festival. Opportunity took me to Los Angeles where I kept trying to and occasionally finding work as an Actor. I added telemarketer, printer and toilet flush salesman to my day job “resume.” I was always writing, and my adaptation of The Snow Queen was produced by the Rogue Music Theater. Then, I met Nancy Cartwright and we worked together for many, many years. While helping her with overall career and philanthropic goals, I produced and created an animated series for Turner, The Kellys. I wrote some plays for Cartwright Entertainment and brought her one-woman show “My Life as a ten-year-old Boy” to the Edinburgh Fringe. I helped her edit and write her autobiography of the same name and I wrote her other one-woman show, In Search of Fellini, and ended up co-writing In Search of Fellini as a feature film released in 2017. During those years I was part of founding two more theater ventures. Artists Without Nets in Los Angeles and The Mountain Shakespeare Festival in Frazier Park, California. Along the way I became a family man. Michelle Morain and I were married in 1989 and in 2000 we adopted twins from Bolivia. I also have a son, daughter and two grandchildren from another relationship. I have no idea how I survived and consider myself a very lucky man.
Descripción del libro
Cal Sterling is a nowhere man, spinning his wheels as a cab driver while struggling with a broken heart. Then he smashes his car into another driver and his job is on the line. Bottom. And on that same night when he is wrapped up in his self-created Hell, his friend and fellow driver Rasheed is murdered, shot in the back in his own home. What should have driven Cal to quit, to run away, instead awakens a desire to make something of his friend’s unfinished life. The Police write it off as a robbery gone bad, but Cal knows how Rasheed, a black activist, had angered the white owners. Something else led to his death and Cal makes a vow to uncover the truth. But he knows less than nothing about finding killers and his only tool is his knowledge of the streets, and the certainty that other racist drivers wanted his friend dead. So, he follows and discovers a complex conspiracy involving not racism, but a manipulation of the precious Taxi Medallions that give you a license to drive. Digging into one den of secrets leads to others and, finally, he has to set himself up as a target to uncover the true cause of Rasheed’s murder and the other murders that became necessary.

Something that conveys the dark danger of night driving but without necessarily using a taxi in the image. The entire novel takes place in a week of heavy rain and much of it at night. I've attached a file that is an image of a taxi medallion that I tilted. The one idea I've had is that using this hyper real image, or some other idea, have the lower corner melting into a pool of blood. The number should be 165, due to the story, but the 5 should not be readable, that portion of the medallion has to be melting.
