“Massage World: The Novel is a titillating and wild-ass ride through the booming world of massage therapy, unveiling by turns a crystally and oily tale of ambition, sensuality, and dogged competition. Ingrid Swanson, a determined massage therapist, is hell driven to open an upscale, straight health spa, but her plans meet a hard to define gangsterism from the massage parlor lord, Jack Cobb, and his  crooked vice dick eliciting “extras.” It’s Rousseau meeting De Sade in overtime.What ensues are heated battles adding up to the curious coinage “massage wars,” as Ingrid fights to establish her business against all sordid odds. The story takes a gut drop when a police raid and ensuing bust prompt a neighborhood organization to rally and then a newscaster to open the 6 p.m. feed with: “You get more than just a massage at the new upscale health spa Massage World!” Finally, add the whole wobbly house of cards up and you get Massage World and the reader – this reader – being struck by the delirious Americana divisions that the rest of the world cannot take their eyes off of.” – Vladimir Nenchev; Sofia, Bulgaria

“Massage World combines gritty realism, lurid sensationalism, and darker-than-black comedy to conjure up a phantasmagoric vision of a world in pain … The war of the sexes writ mind-blowingly large.” — Larry McCaffery, author notably of Some Other Frequency: Interviews with Innovative American Authors 

“It’s a sizzler of a thriller bursting with eccentric energy.” — William Luvaas, winner of a Huffington Post Book of the Year award 

“Very cinematic with a canny and calculated construction. A really high-octane potboiler. Motion and emotion. Exotica and erotica  from SoCal to Japan and back. Conflict galore. Kinkiness with and without aromatic oils. Who could ask for more?” — Harold Jaffe, Editor of Fiction International and professor of literature and literary writing at San Diego State University
