Two new interviews and a blog post

It’s been a busy week! The lovely Erik D’Souza interviewed me for Crime Writers of Canada about being a finalist for this year’s Excellence Awards. Here’s the link to the YouTube video: While you’re there, take a look around. Erik has interviewed many, if not most, of the finalists.

My local newspaper, High River Times, also interviewed me about the Excellence Awards. Dan Marcinkowski dropped into Margins Bookstore in High River, where my sister authors, Lorrie Morales and Linda Rakos, and I did a book signing.

The winners of the CWC Excellence Awards will be announced on May 29.

And finally, I was featured on Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine blog, Trace Evidence, as my short story, “Chuck Berry is Missing,” will appear in the next issue. I write about the importance of interesting characters in keeping readers’ interest.

I have a short story, “The Mittens,” coming out in the Jan/Feb 2023 Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine (on the newsstands in December). Ahead of that, I have a post on Trace Evidence, the AHMM blog. “Yes, but why?” addresses the reasons people do the things they do… especially in stories. You can read it here:
