After 46 years of teaching, the former Toledoan, Larry Rochelle, has finished two thrillers this year: BONAVENTURE and OCCUPY FEARRINGTON. “It’s quite curious to explore your childhood... More > hometown with the eyes of an adult, and place vicious murderers into that formerly tranquil landscape,” says the seventy-two-year-old author and sports buff. “Everyone should try it.” Growing up in Toledo’s West Side, Rochelle learned tennis and golf in Ottawa and Jermain Parks. His mother, Claire, often took him to Sigmond Sanger Library where he started off with sports fiction, particularly Claire Bee novels. “I loved those action stories, and later I collected quite a few first editions of his books.” Also credited for his literary bent are the Notre Dame nuns who taught at Gesu School. “Each one of them in the early grades read to us in class. What excitement!”< Less

The back entrance to the topless bar, The Stage Door, in Covington, Kentucky, was slightly opened, it was 5:30 a.m., and a small crowd could see blood trickling down the back stairs and onto the... More > gravel. Police cars were scattered in the alley, at odd angles, their flashing lights blinking, their sirens turned off. Whoever called from the pay phone on Fifth Street was long gone, but everyone noticed the yellow crime scene tape protecting the dusty alley. Three detectives were bent over, looking into the dust, measuring some barefoot prints, and the crowd wondered and murmured to itself. A tall, thin man with a full crop of blond hair and a white tennis windbreaker was sitting on the low brick wall which ran along the alley for half a block or so. He rubbed his face, and then absently reached into his jacket pocket, searching for another piece of gum.< Less

PUNK’D: A Big Hole Thriller Music plays a big part in Larry Rochelle’s writing. He sometimes plays one song over and over as he types his thrillers: The Doobies, The Eagles, Benny... More > Goodman and Tanya Tucker have all been background music for his intense Palmer Morel thrillers. For his sixteenth Palmer Morel novel, he stumbled upon a classical violin piece by Treme actress, Lucia Micarelli. The sound is full of romantic gloom and is entitled “Oblivion.” And PUNK’D might be seen as an introduction to oblivion itself. The scenes Rochelle uses are both imaginative and spooky. The Pussy Cat Lounge is a strip club in Durham. The Big Hole is a former cold war location used for secret communications in Pittsboro. Elmo’s is an often raucous greasy spoon in Carrboro near the University of North Carolina campus. Café Diem is a small, punkish, Goth coffee house in Pittsboro.< Less
