Agatha Finalists at Chicks on the Case

Thanks to Chicks on the Case for hosting this year’s Agatha Award finalists for Best Short Story for a discussion about the titles of our nominated tales: where they came from, why we chose them, and how they contribute to an understanding of the stories themselves.

My story, “Better Days,” originally published in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, is a sequel to an earlier work, “A Drowning at Snow’s Cut”—but that earlier story’s genesis and the title of the new one both relate to my dad, as I explain at the post.

So pleased to hear from the other finalists as well about their stories—and congratulations again to each of them: Kaye George, Barb Goffman, Cynthia Kuhn, and Shawn Reilly Simmons.
