Hello readers! Have you ever wanted to read a great mystery, but you only had a few minutes to do it? Well the perfect book for you is coming to stores this June.
My good friend, the wonderful (and incredibly prolific) author Chris Grabenstein asked me – along with many other great mystery writers, to create short mystery stories for a new book: Super Puzzletastic Mysteries. It is being published in conjunction with the Mystery Writers of America, which is the coolest organization ever (and one that I am very proud to be a part of).
My fellow contributors include Chris himself (of course) along with Kate Milford, Peter Lerangis, Bruce Hale, James Ponti and many other greats. Each of the stories is like the kind you would find in Encyclopedia Brown (one of my favorite series of all time): the kind where the story breaks so that you get the chance to figure out who did it — and then you have to turn to the end of the book to see if you were right.
My own contribution will be a short story featuring characters from one of my other series. But I’m not going to say which one. (So don’t bother asking.) Suffice it to say that this was the first time I have written a short story and it was great fun. I hope you’ll enjoy it — and all the other great stories in this book.
It won’t be in stores until June 23 — but you can preorder it by clicking here.
