"The Origins of Disgust, Self-Hatred, and Hostility" mostly takes place in San Diego, California, and although several time periods are covered, the bulk of the story occurs in the 1980s. This shocking story focuses on the life of a young runaway named Mike Hollister, the criminal-minded surrogate family who molds him, and the seedy underworld of lucrative, illegal operations he ultimately accepts as normal. At seventeen years old, Mike abandons his cohorts of crime in the suburbs for the drug and urine drenched canyons and underpasses of downtown. In the filth and disparity of homeless intravenous drug addicts, alcoholics, prostitutes, and the mentally ill, he devises one of the most original and highly profitable illegal money making schemes ever. Even though Mike may be the most street-wise kid around, he can't predict the unforeseen disasters his operation will produce in the most brutal of manners.

About the Author
Ken Leek has been active in the arts for twenty years. He started his navigation through the world of words as the vocalist and lyricist of his first punk band, The Neighbors (1991-2001). Five releases were put out in that time span with two releases finding national and international acclaim. During that time, he developed an interest in biographical and instructional writing by contributing to fanzines such as “Genetic Disorder” (The Satan Issue) and “Too Sick To Move” (DIY Issue). He also wrote a short, nonfiction piece in a book titled, “Stories From The Road”, which featured short stories from bands’ whacky experiences playing live. Inspired and influenced by hard-edged musicians and authors, Ken continues to create harsh music as well as warped, yet thoroughly researched and often comical, fiction.
