I find short stories much harder to write than novels. For me, a short story takes discipline, to stay focused and not stray into the subplots and tangents. You can’t explore the character – you have to stick to the essentials to tell that one story, which is usually just a snapshot of someone’s life.
But I do like writing them. And the one thing I like even better than writing them is seeing them published.
My latest is in Out of the Gutter, a collection featuring some down ‘n’ dirty criminals.
If you like hardboiled, noir, seedy, unpredictable crime fiction, you’ll find a bunch of stories in this issue from the likes of Victor Gishler, JA Konrath, Charlie Stella…
Great thing about this story is that I wrote four endings, so for a while I really didn’t know how things would turn out. I hope that means that it will keep the reader guessing to the end as well.
It’s available to order online and in select bookstores.
