About the author


For the last 35 years, my career has been in the film industry, specializing in visual effects. This has allowed me to work in various film genres, with a wide array of directors, from dedicated storytellers like Francis Ford Coppola to visionary image makers like George Lucas. It's been a blessed journey while planting the seeds to tell my own story.
I've always been attracted to mechanical things and speed and have raced competitively since I was 14. This novel allows me to combine my passions; storytelling and racing. It also allows me to look deeper into my personal story and disguise those revelations through fictional characters. Much more comfortable that way.

Demon Motors
Volume 1 Run What you Brung
by Jimi Simmons View author's profile page

Overview


Not everyone can operate in a 9-5 world, and when a great deal of your life is led 'off the books,' it gets complicated. Demon Motors is a book designed to help people with loss, the outsiders. People who feel seemingly alone but are attracted to each other to form a new community.

Description


After the car accident that killed his wife, Joe Muncie realized his life had been pointless up until then. Years of drug abuse, violence, and the despair that came with it had been washed away with the love of a woman. Now, with no experience in leading his own life successfully, his only option was to follow what little bit of his heart he had left.
Set in San Francisco in the early '90s, with the underground street racing scene as a backdrop, Joe struggles with the conflict between the darkness he loves and the man he wants to become. Trying to understand that you can have no loss if you give everything freely was a concept he had heard about but couldn't comprehend until he found his tribe: prostitutes, bikers, lost boys, and thieves who doubled as accountants, mechanics, and stand-up men—runaways with no sense of self, much less proper ID's. Every day people whose situation influenced their lives in a particular direction now gathered like geese on the edge of the bay. This was Demon Motors. This was a new start for everyone.
