Acey Tapp
Created by S.E. Schenkel

Webb: "Are you a licenced investigator?"
Acey: "No, but I've got tons of common sense, balls, and the best teacher in town. I also lie easily. That's got to be a plus in the PI business."

When we first meet him in The Hobo Chronicles (2005), Willow Falls, Michigan resident ACEY TAPP is pushing fifty, out of luck and out of bread, an unemployed truck driver trying to cope with his mother’s terminal illness. He talks his way into a P.I. gig with Webster "Webb" McMunn, an elderly private eye, who at first reluctantly agrees to take him on. But they turn out to be a good team.

A former missionary nun who worked on Africa's Gold Coast (now called Ghana) for over ten years,, S.E. (Shirley) Schenkel later left the religious community and got married. She is now living in Michigan and is hard at work on a sequel, Black Snow Rising, due to be published in august 2006.
