9 Best British Mystery Books That You Should Be Reading:
Compiled by Dennis Lehane. Happy to say my Max Tudor is listed, along with Poirot and many of the greats. Nice.
I just learned my short story for Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, "Something Blue," is being prepared for print. If past experience is any guide, it will appear in magazine form in about three months.
This is a story that germinated in my mind a long time and has a message that is important to me. Although I avoid preaching in any of my writing, some things need to be said. I hope you'll look for this story in your subscription copy of EQMM or on newsstands later this year.
