If your writing doesn’t keep you up at night, it won’t keep anyone else up either
James M. Cain
James M. Cain (born July 1, 1892) stopped thinking about a singing career and instead turned to writing hard-boiled American crime fiction. Lucky for us! He is best known for The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity, and Mildred Pierce, each of which were adapted into hugely successful Hollywood films.
