About McGrave

Los Angeles cop John "Tidal Wave" McGrave is an unstoppable force of nature who always gets his man...even if it means laying waste to everything around him, including his own career...which is exactly what happens when he pursues Sebastian Richter, the ruthless leader of an international gang of violent thieves, all the way to Berlin.

"Pages of awesomeness...think of this as some sort of lost 80s action film. McGRAVE is a super-breezy and easy read," Bookgasm

"Holy Crap, this book is insanely's high impact, high adrenaline, and high class all the way," The Blue Site

What People Say

  • The Walk is a magnificent novel — by turns hilarious, scary, sad, witty and one hell of a page-turner, too.

Stuff I Do

  • Script Writing

    I've written short films, movies, and hundreds of TV shows...but what makes me special is that I'm the only guy who has written for a talking dolphin and David Hasselhoff. 


  • TV Production

    I've produced shows in the U.S., Canada, England and Germany in a wide variety of genres, from cop shows to science fiction, from martial arts to some really embarrassing crap. 

  • My Books

    My first novel was published when I was 19 under the pseudonym "Ian Ludlow." I hope that wasn't when I peaked.

Cool Tabs

I've always been a writer. I wrote my first novel when I was eight. The hero was born in an underwater sperm bank. I have no idea why it was underwater, or how deposits were made, but I thought it was cool.

I collect signed first edition mysteries and old TV shows. I'm one genetic mutation away from being a guy who speaks fluent Klingon and lives in a basement.

My father was a TV anchorman, my Mom was a newspaper columnist and my brother, two sisters, and an Uncle are all writers. Our grocery lists are sonnets in iambic pentameter.
