This web site
will come down on April first, but it will be back later, rebuilt and I hope
improved. In the meantime, thanks for having visited.
You will still be able to get my last
four novels — Designer Crimes,
Last Chants, Star Witness and Havana
Twist — in all ebook stores. (At the moment, Simon &
Schuster is offering them for the sale price of $.99 each.)
Until April first, Prior Convictions, The Good Fight, and Face
Value will also be on ebook shelves. They will be temporarily unavailable
after that, returning later with the rest of my backlist. When the new site goes
up, I'll have more information and links.
My novella Champawat, (originally in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Sept/Oct
2012), will remain in the Kindle
Store, the iTunes Store and the Nook Store. It is set in the days before and the weeks after World War I
Armistice. I'm delighted that it came in third in the Readers Award vote for
favorite EQMM story of the
year. It is the sequel to "The Children" (Ellery Queen, Sept/Oct 2011), also in the Kindle
Store, iTunes Store and Nook Store. (The two are also available together in the Kindle
Store and the Nook Store.) They are reviewed, along with two of my novels, in a post at Daily Kos.
An anthology of my short stories
will also continue to be in the Kindle
Store, the iTunes Store and the Nook Store. Lovers and Lawyers:
Ten Stories spans
two decades, with stories originally in collections edited by Scott Turow, Tony
Hillerman, Sara Paretsky, Jonathan Kellerman and others. One of them, “Dead
Drunk” (winner of a Private Eye Writers of America Shamus Award), became a free
Crime City Central podcast, narrated by Cher Eaves. You can listen or download
it at Crime City Central or on iTunes. (The story starts at the 28.45
minute mark.) I've put the print version online here
too, if you'd like to follow along with the podcast.
