Craft. Crime. Comedy.
Sleuthsayers is a collective of a bunch of leading and acclaimed crime writers. They blog daily on short crime fiction, writing tips, and fascinating turns in history.
Somehow, they let me join.
I blog for Sleuthsayers the second Saturday of each month. Some months I go behind my short stories, and other months it’s further afield into writing craft, novel and film analysis, or plain old silliness.
