Trains Tracks on the cover

I have not seen the January/February 2018 issue of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine yet, but today I saw the cover.  Take a look at "Train Tracks," my 28th appearance in AHMM.  My fourth shot on the cover.  What a thrill.

Janet Hutchings, editor of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, invited me to write something for their blog, Something is Going to Happen.  I decided to write about where my vocation meets my avocation.

When Women Didn't Count at Island Library


Last night I had the honor to speak about my book at Island Library on Lummi Island.  Great fun  with a very engaged crowd.  Must have been half an hour of questions.

The Chair Thief reviewed

Catherine Dilts reviews at least one short story every week and good for her.  The week after Thanksgiving she reviewed five and one was "The Chair Thief."  She said it had "quite a shocking ending. But totally believable to anyone who has been burned by office politics."  Thank you, Catherine.
