Sketchy Types – The Author Blog for Jeffrey A. Cooper

No comments

This blog focuses on the crime genres of heists and capers.

I love stories about the bad guy. The rebel. The non-conformist. The person that lives life on their own terms. That one who isn’t concerned about rules, laws, societal norms, social media postings or what you think about them, for that matter.

I write about these sketchy types. My first book, “How to Steal a Truck Full of Nickels” was published in 2015.  My second book, “Burn One Down: A Bad Apples Caper” was published on June 15, 2018.

By no means do I consider myself an expert, and this is not a complete list in any way, but that was the point. It’s a jumping off point. A discovery.

Heist and capers as a storytelling device are everywhere. I’ll explore new and classic authors, book series, novels, films, filmmakers, writers, television, and anything else that makes up these (criminally) under-appreciated crime-fiction genres.

We’ll discover brilliant, suspenseful storytelling, classic anti-heroes, and stories that blend different genres together, bringing classic heist and caper elements into modern (and future) storytelling.

I look forward to sharing them with you. Let’s have some fun, gang.
