Dean O’Leary is a man who lives on the edge: of life, love, and happiness. After a bank robbery gone horribly wrong, Dean leaves his life of crime in Los Angeles and exiles himself to the cold grey sands of Las Vegas. A cruel and unusual twist of fate shows Dean a life filled with the love and hope that he has always thought impossible, and then rips it away. With nothing left to lose, Dean goes all in on one final crime.

William recently relocated to breathtaking and traffic-free Athens, Georgia, from back-breaking and happiness-eviscerating Los Angeles, California, where he came mercifully close to making a living as a hired gun writing and editing copy for various commercial enterprises and creative endeavors. He began his lifelong roadtrip in the deprecated sands of Las Vegas, Nevada, and as a result of a military patriarch, and a subsequent unabated restlessness, has changed addresses fifty-six times in thirty-eight years. Fearing for his alleged future he succumbed to a degree in Graphic Design, which proved a path of minor resistance, and by no means a door-opening maneuver. These days he earns his pittance from a real-life Kafkan nightmare and daydreams about sitting behind his typewriter working on his fifth novel, playing the drums in a project that is disrespectful of homogenous time signatures, and conversing with his astonishing wife and his brilliant six-year-old stepson. William’s synaptic meanderings have appeared on his website (agentofdiscord.com) and: in technical form on WIRED.com and THALO.com, in memoir/novel form in A Selfish Man (Publish America – 2003), in short story form in Rain Crow Magazine (Athens Diptych – Issue #2), will appear again next year in short story form in an anthology supporting the non-profit Mines Advisory Group (The Atlantic – 2013), and finally, in voluminous letters to persons still enchanted with non-electronic communication. PS they almost never write back...
