“English 398: Fiction Workshop” Named Agatha Award Finalist—AND…!

I’m thrilled that my story “English 398: Fiction Workshop” has been named a finalist for this year’s Agatha Award for Best Short Story—but importantly, that’s not the biggest news of the day.

Even more thrilling: I’m pleased to be making history with my wife Tara Laskowski for what I understand is the first time a husband and wife have been named finalists for competing works in the same category at Malice Domestic! Tara’s story “The Case of the Vanishing Professor,” first published in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, is also on the slate for Best Short Story along with short fiction by our good friends Leslie Budewitz, Susanna Calkins, and Barb Goffman.

Congratulations to everyone in this category, and to the entire list of finalists for this year’s Agathas!

Look forward to seeing everyone at Malice Domestic in early May!
