Book Cover: Fools Rush In
A decades-old body is found in the decaying San Diego landmark Aztec Hotel. Horatio "Rush" Storms, struggling bar owner, is dragged into finding out who it was and why they wound up in the closet, literally. Duplicitous drag royalty, childhood heroines gone wrong and unreliable police keep getting in Rush's way while a series of gay-bashing keeps everyone on edge. San Diego in the early 1990's isn't like the tourism brochures promised and Rush needs to balance keeping promises with staying in business.

About the Author

Long-time San Diego resident, Austin Thomas Burton grew up in a small college town that couldn’t decide if it was Southern, Midwestern or just wouldn’t fit in anywhere. That static childhood resulted in a restless need to see the country and the world. So far, he’s been lucky enough to visit over 16 countries and lived in 11 towns in 4 states.

His interests are widely varied and often in conflict with one another, but chances are he’s reading a book at the moment.

Burton currently lives in a historic Georgian Revival house built in 1897 in Toledo, Ohio’s Old West End with his husband and 2 spoiled Basset Hounds. Sadly, the house is not haunted as promised.
