Coming Soon - My Crime Fiction Debut

I'm thrilled to announce my first publishing credit in crime fiction! It's sort of a double debut - my local chapter of Sisters In Crime is publishing their first-ever anthology, Fault Lines: Stories by Northern California Crime Writers, coming in March 2019.

Check out this killer lineup:

I wrote the short story, "SegFault," (geek shorthand for "segmentation fault," a computer error condition) to see how far I could make it in a blind submission process alongside the award winners and best sellers in the NorCal SinC chapter. It also gave me a fun way to challenge myself to write a cyber crime-themed short story, as opposed to the novel I'm currently polishing up. The word count restriction tested my ability to translate technical concepts into plain English while spinning a compelling yarn.

Watch this space for updates as the release for Fault Lines date draws nearer.

  1. Glad to hear your story SegFault is getting published in Faultlines. Kudos my friend. I will look for it in March. I think of you every time I look at my laptop camera which is covered with your slide back security screen. Great meeting you at Crimebake 2017 (Boston). Best wishes, Debra Faust-Clancy
