My short mystery, “White Nights”, in the current issue of Mystery, Crime, and Mayhem, is the perfect summer read! Enjoy the Danish midnight sun at a retreat designed to ignite the creative energies of the participants. But beware: something is not right in Denmark. Follow the action as creative artist Georgina Featherstone and her sidekick Kelly Newington try to fend off disaster.

“White Nights” is one of nine cozy mysteries in this issue. We all know Sherlock Holmes from Watson’s point of view. These stories feature other grand investigators who need their brilliance explained by their constant companion. And not all crime fighters are human! Many times, the crime is actually solved by the cat, dog, or parrot, though the human takes the credit.

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?”
