Local Knowledge in the Best American Mystery Stories of the Year!

I’m honored to report that my short story, “Local Knowledge,” has just been reprinted in The Best American Mystery Stories 2012 edited by Robert Crais. The story first appeared in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. I’m very pleased by this.  If you’d like a copy, you can get it at your local bookseller or find a copy here.

    Your mystery stories always tie me up, bolt me down, and keep me riveted. While extremely pleased to see your work continues to be reprinted in some “Best American…” series, I am not at all surprised. Mostly because you and your work are in my “Best American…” whatever series in my own home library. Keep on keepin’ on!

A New Urban Fantasy Story!

Primitive Area UA cover web

I love taking part in the Uncollected Anthology of Urban Fantasy. Every quarter, we put out individual stories on the same theme (hence "anthology" and "uncollected"). This time, Dayle Dermatis, Leah Cutter, Ron Collins, Leslie Claire Walker, Rebecca Senese, and Annie Reed, have joined me in the Out of the Woods "anthology."
