Thanks Dime Show Review for having me! It’s a super sharp site.
Late posting this bad boy, but hell, it’s never too late to keep the Christmas spirit alive. Consider it a belated gift, you ungrateful swine.
I was part of a fun series of fiction over at Out of the Gutter called the 12 Daze of Christmas. The premise was simple: 12 crime-orientated pieces of flash for the 12 days leading up to Jesus’ birth (alleged).
My shortie “Dead Letter” made the cut. Enjoy it here along with the 11 other wicked yuletide fools.
Back in the ’90s, ambitious crooks in Orlando used to grind a caper on tourists that revolved around pizza delivery. They’d make up phony flyers for non-existent pizza joints, leave them on windshields in hotel parking lots, and wait for the unsuspecting tourists to order. Then they’d show up at their hotel rooms with an empty pizza box and the marks would just let them in.
That dated caper was the inspiration for this story, “95 Degrees,” published on the UK crime site Near to the Knuckle. Thanks for having me!
Wicked excited to have a story in this new anthology Fast Women & Neon Lights: 80s Inspired Noir, edited by the mighty Michael Pool. Featuring 18 bitchin’ tales of the ’80s, including my story “Alone Now.” Want to see what happens when two desperate burglars get trapped in a Foot Locker overnight with Tiffany blasting on repeat at deafening volume? Of course you do!
