Thank you to Dan Pope and all my colleagues in the MFA program who provided guidance as I struggled to write a mystery short story from a 12 year-old girl’s point of view. I had enourmous trouble finding her voice. I’m thrilled to report that FINALLY, after two years and countless revisions, “Last Supper” has sold to Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. It will appear in the June issue, which is perfect, since it is distributed free to attendees at the annual Malice Domestic Mystery Conference. Attendees at this conference are readers of the kind of non-blood and guts mysteries I write.
One additional comment, this sale is even sweeter than simply selling a project that’s dear to me and that I’ve worked on for years; it also marks the first non-Josie fiction sale I’ve ever had.
