MICHAEL HUGHES reads from his novel INLAND INTRIGUE

Inland Intriuge (Black Rose Writing)

Tyler Conway, a student at the University of Southern California, has yet to line up work for the summer before his senior year. At the suggestion of a family friend, Tyler begins interning for Kevin Maxley, a former city councilman turned real estate developer running as a moderate Republican in a swing district in the Inland Empire.  

Running against Maxley is Dick Mullhill, a Democrat and former banker backed by the Democratic Party establishment.  As Tyler learns all of the ropes of campaign life, he comes across conspiracy theory-prone voters, a congressman’s zealously flirtatious sister, and a group of hard-partying college Republicans.  Tyler soon learns of rumors of misbehavior and corruption in both campaigns, and that the car accident death of a former coworker of his father’s may not have been all that it seemed.  As election night 2012 rolls around, Tyler figures it all out, for better or worse.

Michael Hughes was born and raised in Los Angeles.  He attended Loyola High School and Stanford University and graduated from the latter in 2013.  In college, he ran a bipartisan political opinion and news journal called The Cardinal Principle.  He worked on congressional campaigns in Southern California as an intern during the summers of 2011 and 2012.  He started writing fiction in 2012, and his prior works include the ebook novel Loafing by La Brea and the novels Pumpkin Farmer, The Crimson Shamrock, and Inland Intrigue.  He currently works in regulatory compliance for a bank and lives in Los Feliz.
