​Short Stories and Work in Progress

Snowbound Best New England Crime Stories 2017 includes 38 original tales from noir to cozy and everything in between. My contribution, Unstrung Quartet, leans toward the noir but with a sense of humor. You can find the anthology here  and elsewhere.


Sometimes an idea is neat but not enough to sustain a whole book. The reader is always busy, but some days they have just a few minutes.


My first published short story, Nor Death Will Us Part, is included in Black Coffee, an anthology of mysteries noir. There are 22 other stories, something for every taste as long as your taste leans toward the dark. It's available as a paperback or ebook fromAmazon


The shortest of short stories are called flash fiction. Cold Turkey is about a man in love who quits smoking and learns his best friend cannot be trusted. Cold Turkey is a 2018 Derringer Award finalist. It was published in the Summer 2017 issue of the e-zine Flash Bang Mysteries.
