Travel the world in great short fiction!

Travel to Poland in 1984 and again in 2013 led me to write “Blown”, an FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd short mystery. “Blown” is one of fourteen stories in Fiction River Presents: Writers Without Borders. The anthology crosses the border (and sometimes the galaxy) from a look into the Canadian side of World War II to the streets of London’s East End to worlds altogether alien. Writers Without Borders offers up international perspectives from Fiction River authors living outside the US and spans genre lines from historical mystery to fantasy to science fiction.

An ebook edition of my latest Dawna Shepherd short story is on the way!

Drones appear in the first line of “Blown”, a short mystery story published in Fiction River earlier this year:

“Monday night at eight-fifty-five, Polish time, a covey of midget helicopters burst through the half-open clerestory windows in the banquet hall. FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd kicked into arrest mode.”

I thought that was good enough reason to post this terrific photo of the Janester, owned by long-time friend Bill and photographed from his buddy George’s quad-copter flying close by. In July, I’ll release an ebook edition of “Blown: A Dawna Shepherd Short Story”.
