GREAT NEW COVER FOR A FUN MYSTERY!

Great because the cover above, unlike the old one featuring Kesey’s colorful school bus, doesn’t suggest that readers will time-travel back to the sixties.

Murder, Ken Kesey, and Me happens in the recent past and imagines a movie-making venture in Oregon, depicting the life of the state’s most famous author.

I like that the new cover focuses both on the film and the humor in this modern mystery.

As the story begins, an indie company is coming to Oregon to make Acid Test: The Life of Ken Kesey. Before they arrive, hardworking Eugene location scout Estrella “Star” Stevens stumbles over a dead body and into the crushing embrace of the FBI.

Star is forced to join the FBI’s risky investigation of gangland boss and titty bar owner Oscar Quarry. Narrowly escaping death, she’s suddenly living her own movie.

Will she be a star? Or the next corpse? And which homicidal Oregonian is racking up the body count?

Laugh your way into 2019!

Laugh with Odin, the robot vacuum cleaner who narrates my new short story, “Clean and Godly in Denmark”.

Odin is a robot vacuum cleaner one meter in diameter with a shiny black cover. He works for Danish seniors.

You can find my story in Fiction River: Hard Choices available from all major ebook retailers.

As I told the anthology editor, in my little village, Danish seniors have government-supplied robot vacuum cleaners to help them live independently.

My elderly neighbors seem very fond of their tireless helpers, often talking to them like old friends.

To which he replied, “Yeah, what could go wrong there?”

Plenty.
