This noir tale barely tops 1000 words, but I hope it packs a wallop well beyond its word count.
The debut issue of this new mystery magazine features my story “Fairy Tales”—about a generational showdown over a small bit of street (with much, much more ultimately at stake).
My first try at Sherlockiana (does it really count?) appears in the November 2016 issue of EQMM.
“Restoration” is a noir tale with a dose of speculative fiction, featured in the debut issue of Crime Syndicate: A Magazine of Crime Fiction.
My second story featuring Del and Louise—both a follow-up to the Derringer Award-winning story “Rearview Mirror” and a preview of On the Road with Del & Louise: A Novel in Stories.
Winner of the Agatha and Anthony Awards and finalist for the Macavity for Best Short Story.
