Stories by Our Members


Annette Dashofy

“A Murder Runs Through It,” in Fish Tales: The Guppy Anthology, edited
by Ramona DeFelice Long (2011).








Sanctuary Grace (Spinetingler Magazine, Winter, 2006)  – A finalist in Spinetingler Magazine’s cozy-noir contest.

A young homeless woman witnesses the brutal murder of Crazy Joe, a fellow street person. With the killers on her heels, Grace seeks sanctuary at a local church where she is taken in by the boyish reverend and his crotchety assistant. Grace soon learns that neither of her protectors is what they appear to be and only an act of desperate daring can save her life and bring the killers to justice.

A Signature in Blood (Mysterical-E, Winter 2006) – 2007 Derringer Award Finalist
Rural police chief Pete Adams and deputy coroner Zoe Chambers must track down the murderer of a longtime township resident by solving the mystery of a strange symbol that keeps appearing at various crime scenes and is found carved in the victim’s flesh.

The Haunting of Dalton Primble
(Spinetinger Magazine)
A mild-mannered accountant from Toronto has no idea what’s in store when he inherits his family’s abandoned lakeside cottage. A tale of terror, eh? From the Muskoka Lakes region of Ontario.







Pastures of Heaven (Mysterical-E, Summer, 2008)

Visit a setting in the human past so distant there are no echoes of Western civilization. Read on, and allow your imagination to follow. Pastures of Heaven, the first offering in the new Forgotten Mythology series.

Bayou2016x2700“Three Rivers Voodoo” – Blood on the Bayou: Bouchercon 2016 (coming September 2016 from Down & Out Books)

When Violette Lemaire left Louisiana for a job in Pittsburgh, she left a lot in the bayou: beignets, Spanish moss. Voodoo. But when an annoying co-worker seems to have all the luck, will a childhood tradition provide some relief?







“The Far End of Nowhere” – Fish Out of Water, a Guppy anthology (coming soon from Wildside Press)

For New York food critic Vicky Radcliffe, a trip across West Virginia could end in her primo job – or blackmail. It all depends on her sleuthing skills.
