I am Gary Leon Zimmer,
a former Internet gambling columnist for MediaSoft attempting my first effort at True Crime writing (Tarricone: A Death on Canyon Road).
I was recently featured on a Sirens Production of “Evil Kin: The Boneyard” on ID Discovery. Described on the program as Gary Zimmer: True Crime Writer and featured prominently throughout the one hour program.
Tarricone: A Death on Canyon Road
In 1976 Renee Curtiss met a man thirty years her senior, a charismatic local businessman named Joseph Tarricone. She would have an ongoing relationship with Joseph that would entail both business and romance. It would begin and flourish in one state and end tragically in another.
My writing thus far could be best described using the word eclectic. There is wit and wisdom in Cappy’s Journal, angst and tragedy in Paul Tremain: God of Alcohol, and a young boy’s rite of passage in The House in the Alley. The poem I am not the Famous One is a tribute to the late Ray Carver, internationally known for his minimalist short stories. Carver’s obituary appeared in the London Times. He graduated from Yakima High School in 1956. I graduated from the same high school one year later.
