Free Fiction Monday: Spinning

But when her instructor ends up dead, Patricia must deal with her feelings for him and for everyone else in her small coastal town—including the killer.

An Edgar Award finalist and one of the top ten stories of the year in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine.

Free Fiction Monday: Helmie

When Helmie—a pampered Persian cat worth millions—goes missing, the estate hires not one but two investigators to find him.

Kelsie uses magic to track down lost animals. But in this case, even she wonders if she can find Helmie.

Travis normally uses his investigation skills to track down people, not lost pets. And he works alone.

But when the pair find themselves on the same trail to Helmie’s whereabouts, they realize finding Helmie will prove only the beginning. Rescuing him might just take more magic than either of them realize.
