My friend, Pat Hernas and I, co-wrote a story for an upcoming anthology from Darkhouse Books called, Shhh...Murder. All of the stories take place in a library, so since Pat is a librarian, she was super helpful with her inside perspective. This story marks the debut of Bronte Williams, a determined librarian who knows how to solve a murder. It's currently slated for August release, but we'll let you know when we know the final debut date.
The May/June issue features my short story, "Taking Care." It was great fun to write. It made it's debut at the Malice Domestic Conference in Bethesda, MD and we had a great time.
If you love traditional mysteries, you may want to join me at Malice Domestic, a convention in Bethesda, MD in late April. They've got a great set of honorees this year and the Sunday Tea is not to be missed.
My story, "Taking Care," will appear in the May/June issue of Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine which hits newsstands April 26th.
Blood on the Bayou: The Bouchercon 2016 Anthology is now available for pre-order from Amazon Kindle. Paper copies should be made available after September 16, 2016. You'll find my story, "Blowhards on the Bayou" inside along with stories from David Morrell, Greg Herren, Terrie Farley Moran, Elaine Viets and many more.
At Bouchercon in Cleveland, I got the tremendous opportunity to meet both Mary and Carol Higgins Clark. Mary was one of the guests of honor and stories just flow in and out of her like breath. Here she is signing a special book bag for my mom.
There is still time to make your reservations for the world's largest mystery convention - Bouchercon. Taking place in New Orleans, September 15-18 at the French Quarter Marriott. I'll be signing the anthology, Blood on the Bayou on Saturday, September 17th at 2pm, alongside Greg Herren, David Morrell, Terrie Farley Moran, Elaine Viets, Alison Gaylin, Edith Maxwell, Heather Graham and John Floyd. Stop on by if you are in town.
The July issue of Mystery Weekly includes a story that I wrote called, "A Christmas Miracle." This one was great fun to write!
