Exciting news! Last fall I made my first foray into fiction. My story Murder on the Mountain is the first of (I hope) many fun tales. You can meet cook-turned-sleuth Lizzy Grant in a new anthology of mystery, murder and mayhem. Live Free or Die, Die, Die! Twisted Tales from the Criminal Minds of the Granite State (Plaidswede,October 2011) is available on-line and in bookstores throughout New Hampshire. It’s Volume 2 of the New Hampshire Pulp Fiction series.
Even better! Lizzy and her family will return in the next New Hampshire Pulp Fiction anthology. Volume 3 of the series is coming soon (but I don’t know how soon) to a bookstore near you (if you live in New Hampshire or just over one of our borders). My story Northern Lights looks at a family’s struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease but that’s about all I can say for now!
In the meantime, I continue on as a regular contributor to several New England magazines. Here are more than few links to recent work:
