Steven W. Johnsonabout this book: Tubby Wexler believes he is the personification of the pulp magazine detectives of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. He has all the trappings, a run-down two room office in a dilapidated building, a faithful, if untrained canine, a beautiful, voluptuous Cajun secretary, and a host of bizarre clients. The only thing Tubby doesn't have is a clue!
The inspiration came from the immediate need to write a short story - The Mystery of the Missing Vowel - for a writer's meeting. It worked so well, Tubby and his cast grew to a full sized book of short stories. The primary readers are those who enjoy reading about people in humorous situations. When reading the book it should be obvious how the title came about. The hardest part to write is finding situations where Tubby Wexler does nothing of any social significance. The thing I learned from writing Tubby Wexler is to listen to the voices in my head. They know where the story is going, I am only the transcriber.
The Curious Misadventures of Tubby Wexler, Private Investigator is available at my website or at Amazon.com. I hope you enjoy reading about Tubby Wexler and his cast as much as I enjoy writing his stories.
