How far would you go to make your dreams come true? For budding writer and filmmaker Noah Spaeth, being a Production Assistant in director Dominick Bambach's new avant-garde film isn't enough. Neither is watching Dominick have an affair with the lead actress, the gorgeous but troubled Nevie Wyeth. For Noah's dream is to get both the film and Nevie in the end, whatever the cost. And this obsession may soon become a reality once Dominick's spurned wife Isadora reveals her femme fatale nature with a seductive plot to get rid of her husband for good. Slow Down, a cross between the noir styling of James M. Cain and the dark satire of Bret Easton Ellis, is a thrilling page-turner that holds a mirror up to a media-saturated society that is constantly searching for the fastest way to get ahead, regardless of consequences.

Take Fountain is a "found pages" meta-novel that, through transcripts of an interview between a screenwriter and a script-reading superstar, unravels a murder mystery with profound implications. A novel along the lines of Padgett Powell's You & Me, Take Fountain uses the format of interview transcript to meander its way through discussions of Hollywood, the nature of entertainment, and finally, the danger of an inflated Hollywood ego.
