Nine Dead Dope Dealers and Other Stories is available on Amazon!

This is a collection of four stories  I wrote about San Francisco in the 1980s.  I’ve set up a free give-away for five days, from December 25th to December 29th, so go ahead and read and review. After that it’s $2.99 to read.  (And don’t be afraid to be honest in your reviews, I can take it!)  The story, “Nine Dead Dope Dealers” earned an Honorable Mention in the Mystery/Crime category 2016 Writers Digest Popular Fiction Contest.  (Just sayin!) (And hopefully it will be a paperback soon!) Dealing, Nine Dead Dope Dealers, The Disappearance of Cookie Bob, and Half Moon Bay are all copyrighted by the author.

Did I Mention I got an Honorable Mention???

year-in-pot

My short story, “Nine Dead Dope Dealers” just received an Honorable Mention in the Mystery/Crime Category of the 2016 Writers Digest Popular Fiction Contest! I will post info on how to read the story here,when I find out.  (And I’m thrilled to have won something, but oh the cool prizes I missed: Grand Prize was $2500 in cold hard cash and an all- expenses paid trip to the Writers Digest Conference in NYC, and books, etc. First Prize was $500 in cold hard cash and some books and other stuff.)

Nah, I didn’t win any money or a free conference trip, but I won  a copy of the Novel & Short Story Writer’s Market 2017 and my story will be promoted in the Writers Digest Magazine (both Print and Digital Versions).

So, I can’t complain. It was a fun story to write, and I felt like I was revisiting the old San Francisco crowd.
