DKARMABorder Pulp, that’s what I call the stuff I write; a kind of border town sinister. It’s relaxing, except for the dreams you’ll have after you read it. Think of it as the noir film, A Touch of Evil, but in color. My protagonists and villains live around Mexican/American Border towns. Crooked cops, hit men, drug runners, brothel owners, and beautiful women come and go offering glimpses of a dangerous culture. The lucky losers just get shot, because along this boundry line there are harder ways to go down.

Happy reading. My name is Wally Runnels and I write Border Pulp.




A month ago my brother and I went out to the Anza Borrego Desert.HOY-IMIGRANTWe stopped at a place not far from the old Butterfield stage line and the equally ancient Immigrant Trail used by the gold rush miners on their way to riches. This place is called Desert Palms. Old Indian trails from the mountain behind lead into this oasis. The trails are hundreds of years old. The palms are watered by a constant running natural spring. Animal signs are all over  the site. The weather was in the high seventies, perfect that day.PALM SPRINGS

Juan Bautista de Anza passed by a little to the north through Coyote Wash. He was on his way to the mission San Fernando in the valley of the same name. He made two trips, one in 1774 and 1775.  On his first trip he left San Fernando and met Fra Junipero Serra in Carmel. When he made his second journey he guided settlers on the same route and scouted a great inland harbor and founded San Francisco.
