Avarice!

I thought I’d give you a heads up. I’ve made a modest contribution to what promises to be a great anthology. Avarice is the latest volume in The Seven Deadly Sins, a YA Anthology and will be available early in April. My story “Fallen Angel” is tucked into the mix of compelling stories. I’ll update you as publication approaches.

Tag Team – A Winning Story!

Apologies! I lost track of “Tag Team” and didn’t let you all know when it was published last fall. Ever since I watched the original  “Topper” – Cary Grant, Constance Bennett and Roland Young – I’ve been enamored of humorous ghost stories and have written several such. You can read “Tag Team”, one of my better efforts, in the Bethlehem Writers Roundtable Archives. I hope it offers a few chuckles!

Have a couple or drinks first!

My “Dogwood Dream” and “Black Maggie’s Secret” are to be dramatized and presented at a literary evening in Hollywood on October 8th. If you’re in Southern California and are interested, I’ve put the official announcement containing pertinent details above. I won’t be able to make it, but I’m most interested in how this turns out. Both stories are personal favorites of mine.

P.S. If you know somebody in L.A. who might like to attend, please send this link to them!

Spooky Story Honored

I just received word from Editor Carol Wright that my “Tag Team” won honorable mention in competition for the 2017 Bethlehem Writers Roundtable Short Story Award.  Ever since I watched the original  “Topper” – Cary Grant, Constance Bennett and Roland Young – I’ve been enamored of humorous ghost stories and have written several such. “Tag Team” has a silver lining, though it’s not in the “Topper” category.   I’m pleased and honored by this award and look forward to seeing the story published in the Roundtable this fall. Don’t worry – I’ll let you know when it comes out!

Principia Ponderosa (Third Flatiron Anthologies Book 18) just came out today. “Welcome to the “Principia Ponderosa,” land of wide-open spaces and
dark dreams. This new anthology from Third Flatiron features 17
stories that combine elements of the Western with other literary
genres, including steampunk, fantasy, occult, and horror. We invite
you to mount up and ride with us into the sunset.” My “La Loca” is included, though it takes place somewhat after sunset!
