Jason's story is kind of interesting. He was standing in a bookstore one day, when he noticed a rack of Black Lizard paperbacks. Having never read any hardboiled fiction, and being intrigued, he picked up some Jim Tompson and David Goodis. He got hooked to the point that he decided he wanted to write hardboiled crime fiction in the classic style. He has succeeded admirably.

Pick up all ten of his novels.
