“Texas Two-Step,” was a finalist for the 2004 Macavity Award for Best Mystery Short Story. In honor of March Madness, the national collegiate basketball championships, you can read it online for free in this week’s issue of Kings River Life Magazine. Follow this link and enjoy a good read!
Inmate Winnie Yates speaks in “Mercy Find Me”, telling us in her own words about a hearing that happens off-stage in the legal thriller Help Me Nora. Winnie’s been in prison for more than fifteen years. She has one chance to convince her listeners to set her free today.
You’ll find Winnie’s story in Fiction River: Justice, an anthology of wonderful tales by many of my favorite writers.
Digital edition available from most ebook vendors.
Also available in trade paperback from Amazon.
My first venture to the dark side of short fiction is in the current issue of Switchblade: An Anthology of Noir. Let me take you to the seamier side of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where we watch a wager with life-or-death stakes play out in “Organ Trade Off”.
The editor promises you’ll find fourteen stories that are “twisted and barbed like your ex; sharp and deadly like the femme fatale you know you can’t resist—it ain’t your grandma’s Ellery Queen.”
You can buy Switchblade in paperback or as an ebook from Amazon.
