My short mystery, “White Nights”, in the current issue of Mystery, Crime, and Mayhem, is the perfect summer read!

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!
