Quite The Honor

Current News

I have wonderful news to share. My story, “Catherine The Great,” is a finalist for the Derringer Award. The Derringers, for those of you who don’t know, are a prestigious mystery award given to the best short fiction of the year, as determined by The Short Mystery Fiction Society. “Catherine the Great” is in the novelette category, along with stories by James R. Benn, David Dean, Jacqueline Freimor, and Nick Kolakowski.

I’m really excited by this honor for a couple of reasons. The stories are blind-judged, so name value means nothing. Just story quality. That’s point one. Point two is that “Catherine The Great” came from our Holiday Spectacular (and will be reprinted in the big overall volume this summer, so you all can read it). And the third point is that the story was just so much fun to write. I had no idea where I was going when it started, but I’m happy with the way it ended.
