It’s something I do. In short stories like “Liminal” (from Baltimore Noir) “Custom Sets,” (The Prosecution Rests) and the forthcoming “Jaguar” (forthcoming in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine), and in my novel Diamond Ruby, I place quiet, modest, seemingly powerless young women at the center of the plot. And then I let the fun begin.
Why do I keep doing it? I have my reasons, as I explain in this blog post, written for EQMM’s blog, “Something Is Going To Happen.”
