“Miles Arceneaux offers another gripping tale….If you haven’t read any of the Arceneaux books, this is a good one to start with.” 
 — Glenn Dromgoole, Texas Reads, January 23, 2016

“If you feel tugged buy the desire to breathe the coastal breezes of 1960s Corpus Christi, and learn how Charlie Sweetwater becomes a young man, you’ll find North Beach a satisfying trip in time.” 
— Ed Conroy, San Antonio Express-News, January 2, 2016

“Arceneaux’s story is a smashing blend of a coming-of-age tale and a suspenseful thriller.” 
— Kirkus Reviews, December 2016 

“Arceneaux again proves masterful at evoking atmosphere and recreating a particular time and place. We are immersed in that year (1962): the Space Race, Cuban Embargo, fallout shelters, the Beach Boys, paranoia, and virulent racism. North Beach proves the truism that the more things change, the more they stay the same.” 
— Michelle Newby, Lone Star Literary Life, October 2015

BOOK CLUBS

Miles is highly sought after by book clubs, visiting in person and by phone about his wickedly witty novels, his upcoming books, and/or the vagaries of his unorthodox life as a writer. If your book club is interested drop him a line. 

ABOUT MILES

The author of five funny, fast-paced novels of intrigue set on the Texas Gulf Coast, Miles Arceneaux is a one-of-a-kind writer. Or, more precisely, he is three-of-a-kind—an irreverent persona that is the product of three friends, lifelong Texans, and Gulf Coast aficionados sharing a typewriter and one nom de plume. 

Brent Douglass’ inspiration for Miles’ tales stems from his family’s deep Texas coastal roots, and the iconoclastic characters he crossed paths with growing up there. James R. Dennis’ intimate knowledge of both sides of the law (he’s one of the good guys, it should be mentioned) and his deep appreciation for Texas Rangers lore helps keep Miles’ protagonists on the side of the angels. As a longtime journalist covering Texas and Texans, John T. Davis has sometimes been accused of writing fiction, but this is the first time he has set out to do it on purpose. Together, Douglass, Dennis and Davis make “Miles Arceneaux” truly more than the sum of his parts. 


ABOUT BRENT
International businessman Brent Douglass writes in airports, hotel rooms and drinking establishments around the world. At present he is a principal owner of KBC Networks and peddles data transmission equipment in Latin America and the Caribbean. He is the cultured, cosmopolitan writer of the Miles Arceneaux trio. 

ABOUT JOHN T.
John T. Davis has been writing about the music, culture and personalities of Austin and the Southwest for more than 30 years for local, regional and national publications. He is the streetwise and roguishly irreverent co-author of the Miles Arceneaux canon, albeit its most discerning. 

ABOUT JAMES
James R. Dennis, a Dominican friar, practices law in San Antonio and across Texas. He writes and teaches on spiritual matters and lives with his two ill-behaved dogs. Of the three writers, he is the good-looking, funny one.
