My collaberation with the amazing Nisi Shawl has borne fruit! "In Blood and Song" will be in the upcoming Dark Faith II anthology. It is a story set in Africa, full of Dembe boxing, meat cutting, magic, conspiracy, lies and a riot. You know, a love story.

Just finished writing two short sendups of classic cozy mysteries, "Orange Juice and Paris Green" and "Mrs. Clive-Harris Solves a Mystery" --- and had a blast writing them. Sending to crit for a final tune up and then looking for a market. Usually I write to a market, or because someone asked me for a story. These were purely for fun.

“Nguyen! Can you raise the Marat? My comm is busted.” My voice was gravelly and seemed far away. A dirt clod the size of toaster oven had face-planted me during the cave-in.
“No joy, Gunny. Just a buzz. Might be whatever they mine here interfering.
