Save the date! ‘Murder at the Paisley Parrot (A Marshall James Novel)’ will be releasing this October. For inquiring minds: Marshall James is a variation of my birth name, James Marshall Greene, changed when I was adopted into the McNease family. Yes, I write under my own name (but stay tuned for an exciting twist on that in 2018!).

About ‘Murder at the Paisley Parrot’:

Time waits for no one, including Marshall James. Now 58 and living in New York City, Marshall has outlived the expiration date he was given with a cancer diagnosis three years ago. He beat the odds but he knows he may not beat the clock, so he’s decided to tell a story or three about some murders he was involved in back in the day.

The year was 1983. The bar was the Paisley Parrot, a gay, mob-run, Hollywood dive where people came to drink and few of them remembered the night before. Marshall loves his job as a bartender there. But one night, among the regulars, a killer arrives. Body by body, death by death, Marshall finds himself pulled into a web of murder, deceit and crime. He falls for the cop who’s investigating him, not knowing if their relationship will survive or even if he’ll come out of this alive. Find out in Murder at the Paisley Parrot, arriving with a bang this October.
