Overview

Raphael LaFontaine's parents were hoodoo practitioners who sold potions, infusions, vapors, and spells. While she was pregnant with him Rafael's mother ingested the herbs and roots that were her and her husband's stock and trade.

From early childhood Raphael was afflicted with strange visions and fever dreams and found that he was often able to see into other people's emotions and personalities. Both a curse and a gift, these talents have served Rafe well, first as a Baltimore police officer then as private detective. But sometimes Rafael wonders if he is not a freak masquerading as a normal person.

A frayed-at-the-edges lawyer asks Rafe to help his client with a simple matter, a hard to get rid of ex-boyfriend who also happens to be a Baltimore cop, but Rafael soon finds out that nothing is what it had seemed and it isn't long before Rafe finds himself deeply entangled in a confusing web of lies and murder.

My first published novel was "The Chocolate Spy" followed by "Fane" then "My Real Name Is Lisa" then "The Eyes Of The Blind." I have re-titled Fane as "The Accidental Magician"; re-titled "My Real Name Is Lisa" as "Stolen Angel" and re-titled "The Eyes Of The Blind" as "True Faith." All are available at Smashwords, Amazon, and other ebook sellers. All of my novels except "Daniel" are available in trade paperback editions at Amazon.com from publisher, Wildside Press. My favorite books that I wrote are "The Concrete Kiss", "Death Never Sleeps", "Death Never Lies", "Shooting Crows At Dawn", "A Death In Beverly Hills", "True Faith", "Easy Target", and "Doll's Eyes" more or less in that order but the order changes from day to day. I think the best SF stories that I have written are the Tramp stories contained in SF Stories Volume 1. I have had several Sci Fi stories published in Analog Magazine and two crime stores published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. I am a long-time member of the Science Fiction Writers of America. The legendary SF author (and friend) Jack Vance named a planet after me in "The Face" and named a lawgiver after me in "Night Lamp." I shared a story credit (with two others) for the Outer Limits episode "Joy Ride" which starred Cliff Robertson. My most recent novel is "Death Never Sleeps." I often write screenplays based on my books as well as stand-alone screenplays. I have written screenplays for: "The Concrete Kiss"; "True Faith"; "Death Never Sleeps", "Stolen Angel"; "A Death In Beverly Hills", "Doll's Eyes","The Traitor's Mistress", "Daniel" and "Etched In Bone." I have also written the non-novel related screenplays: "Dreamboat" romantic comedy; "Champion's Season" (comedy); "First Starship" (G-rated adventure).
