ColdBloodedsmthumb-01If you like mystery and suspense as much as I like mystery and suspense you may want to check out the new short story collection KILLER NASHVILLE NOIR: COLD BLOODED.


The anthology goes on sale Tuesday, October 27th, the same day as I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO. It’s edited by award winning author, screenwriter and filmmaker Clay Stafford, founder and president of Killer Nashville, and includes 21 short stories by bestselling and outstanding alumnus of the Killer Nashville International Writers Conference—including mine, The Keepsake.


The Keepsake is set in Nashville and ties to my Morgan family quartet, COVER YOUR EYES, BE AFRAID, I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO and March’s VULNERABLE.  In it, Nashville’s Homicide Detective Jake Bishop pairs his interrogation skills with forensic technician Georgia Morgan’s scientific data to solve a decades old murder case long ago marked unsolvable.
