18th May

“Being Robyn,” my latest short science fiction story has been sent off to Asimov’s magazine.  We’ll see what they think of it.  The story is based on a dream I had, in which a loved one received a phone message telling her that she was dead.  Playing around with the idea of someone finding out that they themselves had died triggered an interesting plot.

Right now I’m working on a mystery short story.  I want to market “Firekill,” a mystery novel that I wrote a few years ago, and when approaching a mystery press it’s always good to have some short stories in the same genre published.  Coming up with a plot was hard – the arc of a mystery story seems to best fit the size of a novel – but now I’m hard at work on “The Missing Slippers.”
