I have a new short story out in “Dames and Sin,” the last installment of Dead Guns Press’s HARDBOILED series. It’s entitled “Pig Boy” and I’m pretty proud of it. It’s a little different than what I usually write in that it’s not set in L.A. or Boston. It’s not even set in America. It features a young woman stranded in Taichung, Taiwan who must resort to her limited skills to survive. It’s pretty dark and messed up – more than what I usually write – which may be why I love it so much. There are some other amazingly talented writers in this issue as well.
I’m thrilled to announce my short story “Pig Boy” will be included in the anthology Hardboiled: Dames and Sin by Dead Guns Press. The crime fiction anthology showcases 13 short stories that feature femme fatales doing bad things. For those who listened to us on Noir on the Radio at Left Coast Crime, you may recognize “Pig Boy.” I read an extremely condensed flash version of it. It features a young woman who finds herself stranded in Taiwan so she makes the best of her limited skills. This should be a fun collection so be sure to keep an eye out for it in May. Tentative release date May 16, 2016!
