"Moe Ron" Boyette
Created by Michael Bracken
MORRIS RONALD BOYETTE --"MOE RON" to his friends -- is a hard-boiled, hardcore P.I. working out of an office behind Millie's Tattoos and Piercings, just down the hall from Big Mac's Bail Bonds in Waco, Texas.
Boyette, is a life-long resident of Waco, divorced, and has a son with a fondness for SF magazines. He handles most any case presented to him, and often gets bounty hunting gigs from Lester Beeson, owner of Big Mac's Bail Bonds. He carries a .38 in a shoulder holster, and has eclectic tastes in women and a sexual appetite that is definitely not left to the imagination in the erotic adventures chronicled so far.
Millard Wayne "Millie" Trout owns the tattoo parlor next door, fills the sidekick role when needed, and acquits himself admirably in the thug department. Millie is big, bald, tattooed (even on his head) and swings a mean 2x4. Millie drives a '65 Mustang and has a thing for wings, so he can't be all bad. He also gets the best lines ("Hey, Moe Ron!").
In the debut "Feel the Pain", Boyette is fed information from his Waco Mob connection, Elroy Johnson, who he describes like this:
"With loose connections to Families in Kansas City, St. Louis, and New Orleans, they laundered money, brokered deals with the Mexican Mafia, and shared news of important events across the state. I'd known Elroy since childhood when I'd played high school football with his nephew, and our paths crossed more often than I ever cared to admit."
Michael Bracken was born in Canton, Ohio, has traveled extensively throughout the U.S., and currently resides in Waco, Texas. He's written hundreds of short stories in multiple genres, including mystery, horror, science fiction, fantasy, and children's fiction. His mystery, suspense, and private eye short stories have appeared in, or been accepted for publication by Blue Murder, Bust Out!, Gent, Gentleman's Companion, Espionage, Hardboiled, Juggs, Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine, TheCase.com, Ellery Queen and other publications. Several of these mystery short stories have been collected in Bad Girls: One Dozen Dangerous Dames Who Lie, Cheat, Steal, and Kill and Tequila Sunrise, both released by Wildside Press in 2000. And he's also created two other private eyes, Nathanial Rose, who works the similarly seedy streets of St. Louis, and Big Dick Rickenbacher who prowls Chicago's underbelly.
