Author Interview

Pop over to the newly redesigned Little Spot for Stories website to learn more about A Murder in Mount Moriah, which has been selected as a finalist in The Next Novelist’s novel competition, and about my Bloody Scotland award winning story “The Best Dish”.


The Next Novelist

A Murder in Mount Moriah has been selected as a finalist in The Next Novelist’s writing competition. In round 1, 8 books will go head-to-head for your votes. The 4 books with the lowest vote total will be eliminated. In the next round, another free excerpt will be released, and again 1/2 the remaining books will be eliminated. The winner gets a $5,000 publishing contract with The Next Novelist. I hope you’ll consider voting for me!
