Mysteries To Die For
A Collection of Four Short Stories
As an avid golfer, my husband and I were excited when a local country club offered memberships at an unbelievably low price. Imagine my shock when I was told my husband and I wouldn’t be able to golf together because women weren’t allowed to golf before 1:00 p.m. I vented my feelings in a short story, The Thirteenth Hole, which is about a haunted golf course.
Sara Morningsky introduced an eighteen-year-old shapeshifter who unknowingly helps to solve the murder of a cop. She enlists the aid of P.I. Chase Dagger, a mysterious stranger with a dark past. I had only meant for it to be a short story but the characters wouldn’t shut up. Because I already had a series with a female protagonist (Samantha Casey series), I decided to give this series to Dagger. Five books later and they are still mouthy.
Diamond in the Ruff is one of those cases Dagger manages to solve in a couple hours. It was an excerpt from the third in the Dagger series which I expanded and made into a short story.
In Solving Life’s Riddle, past and present collide in a story about how a recluse changes the life of a teen runaway. I use a real Chicago figure for this story, giving a bit of a soft spot to a character with a questionable history.
