The Walk Home at Midnight

Cover: Recoil, Shotgun Honey Presents, volume 4

Being included in this anthology is probably the most badass I will ever be (which isn’t very).

My short story “The Walk Home at Night” is contemporary rural noir. It’s about a girl on country back roads at the dead of night, a stalker, and other dangers.

I loved writing it and I hope you enjoy reading it.

• Amazon — Trade Paperback | eBook
• Amazon UK — Trade Paperback | eBook

It’s All In What You Say: Creating Believable Dialogue

A panel discussion by members of the Strictly Genre critique group on the ins and outs of crafting believable dialogue. Come learn how to create dialogue that snaps, crackles and pops with life in a variety of genres. We’ll look at what makes great dialogue, how to use dialogue to add to characterization, finding a character’s “voice,” the most common dialogue mistakes new writers make, and more! Panel members include Jackie Swift (moderator), Gigi Vernon, E.C. Barrett, and Summer Keown.
