If only Alexander Nader’s parents knew … this UF author of Beasts of Burin not be who he is today!
Tigers. They were orange and black and it made all kinds of sense because tigers are really over-running Pigeon Forge, Tennessee right now. I mean, seriously, it’s an epidemic.
My other car was a ________________
I wanted a 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX. The Fast and The Furious had just came out and Paul Walker drove that little green and blue Eclipse with the ridiculous roof scoop and I wanted it so bad. I ended up in a 1995 Nissan Sentra that I drove until last year, toughest car I’ve ever owned.
Nerd? Geek? Jock? Snob?
I’m not sure what others thought of me. I didn’t really do the clique thing in school. I had friends from all walks. People are way cooler than groups. I found the interesting people in every group and talked to them.
If I could do it all again, I would …
Never do it again. Ever. I have still yet to figure out why people love high school so much. Kids, it gets better.
Now, before we get to the last question, let’s look at Alexander’s book …
In fact, to get far far away, he dragged Nora, his rockabilly secretary, from Miami to the Tennessee mountains where he’s lived a life of peace—if peace can be defined as drowning in scotch and taking private eye jobs to keep the lights on. Jobs for real people. Not demons.
He’s retired from that. Remember?
Demon hunters aren’t a dime a dozen, though, and when Ty’s brother asks him for a favor—just one—what’s a brother to do? Agreeing to take down one hillbilly demon shouldn’t take that long. In. Decapitate. Out. Favor complete. Back to the office where Nora and his bottle of whiskey are waiting.
Unfortunately for Ty, staying retired doesn’t seem to be in the cards, and an avalanche of bad luck draws him right back to an agency he despises and the career that nearly cost him his sanity.
This time, Ty has no way out and will have to face his own demons just to survive.
Favorite one-line review about the book
Favorite 6 sentences from the book
“1. Like the men in black if the men in black were over-bearing manipulative assholes.
2. Her silly proportions and sunk-in cheeks tell me she probably does most of her sweating in surgery waiting rooms and most of her dieting in the medicine cabinet.
3. I don’t usually look at the brand, just the proof.
4. I grab the knife from his hand, raise it over my head, and swipe downward like the executioner I am.
5. We head for the door and bump into a walking pair of aviators and a mustache.
6.Blatantly disregarding the speed limit, and ignoring the burning pain in my shoulder, I manage to make it two-thirds of the way back to Rancic’s office before I blackout.”

But before you go, one last question …
If my parents knew I did ____________________, they’d have grounded me forever.
At three in the morning after leaving work one night I got the Sentra up to 107 MPH on a two lane road…Yeah, I was an idiot. I wish someone had told me that’s what interstates were for. Just kidding, guys, don’t speed. Follow the rules, mmmkay?
Congratulations, Alexander! Good luck with Beasts of Burdin!
