Damned If You Don't: The First Two Pages

I’m always interested in reading writers on writing. For that reason I’ve enjoyed following B.K. Stevens’ blog, The First Two Pages, where crime fiction authors are asked to reflect on and discuss the decisions they made and the problems they faced in writing the first two pages of a published work, either a short story or novel.

I’m delighted that Bonnie’s given me the chance to discuss my novel, Damned If You Don't, at The First Two Pages this week. I hope you’ll have a chance stop by.

If this is your first visit, you might want to check the archives for terrific posts by fine writers like Terrie Farley Moran, John Floyd, Jim Jackson, Kaye George, Jacqueline Seewald and Bonnie Stevens, among others.

Jack Hardway's Crime Magazine, Jan.-Feb. issue

I'm very pleased to have my short story "The Anniversary" included in the second issue of Jack Hardway's Crime Magazine. Hardway is the alias of writer and editor Dan Persinger who's created a multimedia noir-infused webzine that makes excellent use of the rich resources of the internet.

In addition to six short stories, the issue includes Lionel White's novel Clean Break, on which the 1956 film The Killing is based,  a classic radio episode of The Whistler, and the film Detour, a 1945 noir thriller.

A click on the opening music link will definitely put you in the noir mood.

Family Matters: Murder New York Style

A Mystery Anthology from the N.Y./Tri-State chapter of Sisters In Crime.


 Available in Paperback as well as in eBook editions for the Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Apple iBook, and at other online retailers

"While many anthologies contain stronger stories to compensate for less compelling tales, here readers will find something appealing in each. The worst of crimes seem to be hidden in the most normal of homes. Whether dark or humorous, these tales are as fascinating as they are entertaining. All are at a superior level of writing from the best of an organization created to support female mystery writers." --Cynthia Chow, Kings River Life

"These stories present a nice mix of murder, mayhem, and suspense as well as a good mix of protagonists; amateur sleuths, professional investigators, cops. Although some stories are darker in tone than others, each has its own fascination that will keep the reader turning pages until the very end....Do yourself a favor, buy the book, and become engrossed in the twenty stories. I’ll bet you can’t just read one.--Cherie Jung, Over My Dead Body!

"I loved every story in this anthology from the New York/Tri-State Chapter of Sisters in Crime, edited by Anita Page. How often can a reader give a 100% recommendation? I can and I am. Each story was a delight, and it didn't matter that New York topography is unfamiliar to me..." Mallory Heart Reviews

"The smorgasbord of 20 stories that round out this well-balanced collection are filled with humor and horror and offer differing perspectives, voices and points-of-view. Unexpected twists and turns—and endings that often pack a chilling, emotional wallop—make for compelling, page-turning short reads that will interest a broad-range of mystery readers."--Kathleen Gerard, Reading Between the Lines

Family Matters (Murder New York Style)

This is  to announce that Family Matters (Murder New York Style), which I had the pleasure and honor of editing, is now available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & NobleYou'll find some details below.

Come meet the relatives in the Murder New York Style anthology, Family Matters. These twenty short stories by members of the New York / Tri-State chapter of Sisters in Crime are as diverse in theme and mood as the city itself. What the families have in common is this: their lives have been changed forever by crime. Motives? The usual: jealousy and greed, rage and revenge, self-protection and politics, secrets and lies. No Metrocard or E-ZPass required to tour these neighborhoods.
