About the Book

Bullseye chronicles the six-week adventure of an amnesiac widowed journalist working in Spain. Peter had been floundering in his own American abyss after the horrific accident. He had few ideas of his own that weren’t drowned in the blend of alcohol and meds. His life had to be told to him by the vaguely familiar faces of others. One of those constants was his trouble making friend, Paul. While inebriated, Paul ‘helped’ concoct the trip to Spain. Although setting out to write about Pamplona’s Running of the Bulls, Peter changed courses after watching a bull fight.

That’s when he fell down the rabbit hole into endless degrees of obsessive exposure to bullfighting, matadors, toreros, flamenco, toro and gypsies. Taking on more research and writing led Peter to enlightening encounters usually revolving around celebration with a unique and at times disturbing casts of characters.

Uncorking Peter’s already bad habits of overindulgence led to a lot of drunken debauchery. The sweltering summer of Spain with its hot women, all heightened by the testosterone of Spanish culture...all kept the heat rising in Peter. With the language barrier bringing him more trouble than he could understand, by the time Peter figured this out his life was already in danger...again.
