Writing on, and about, an island

Death is Served: A murder in four courses

In Books, Career, Crime & Mystery Writer, Writing on June 18, 2012 at 4:49 pm

I’ve just uploaded one of my short stories, Death is Served: A murder in four courses, to my author site. Would love you to read it. It involves food… and, naturally, death… and there’s a lot of my ‘olden days’ magazine life behind it.

The story was shortlisted for last year’s Scarlet Stiletto awards – I ended up with a Highly Commended.

I wrote the piece in about four hours, just before the comp deadline – and it serves as a reminder to me (a perfectionist-slash-procrastinator) that you should just ‘do it’. I almost didn’t write the story, and I almost didn’t submit the story. Boy am I glad I did.

  1. I’d love to read it when I have *time* – which is so short at the moment. Downloading it for later…
