I am very excited to have three short stories in Death Among Us, an anthology of murder mystery short stories, which is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
About my three short stories
My short stories all include a historical setting and a murder combined with a supernatural element. The three stories all depict the tale of an unnatural death due to the circumstances in which the main protagonist finds him/herself. The theme of the stories is to illustrate that how we view ourselves and our role in life impacts heavily on how we shape our futures. They also demonstrate the fact that our choices in life, good or bad, remain with us into perpetuity. Evil and goodness do not die, they merely change form.
Justice is not served;
An eye for an eye; and
The murder of the monk
Who knew death could be so eclectic? Relish this mesmerizing murder mystery mash-up of short stories.
The stories include the 2019 SIA Award-Winning Murder Mystery Short Story ‘The Rose Slayer.’
Murder and mystery have been the staple of literature and films for years. This anthology of short stories will thrill and entertain you. Some will also make you laugh out loud. Others will stop and make you think.
Think of this murder mystery short story anthology as a book version of appetizers or starters, hors d’oeuvre, meze, or antipasti. It can be read as fillers between books or, as is the case in some countries, as a bookish meze – in its own right.
These stories come from an international cast of authors; some with bestselling books, others are emerging or new talents. Their roots, cultures, and life experiences are as diverse as their writing styles.
But one thing binds them together: they know how to tell a story.
There’s murder mystery styles and locations to suit all tastes: detective fiction, serial killers, scifi, histfic, Paris, LA, England, the Caribbean, The Great Lakes, and more in an exquisite exposition of the art of short story telling.
The eleven authors who have contributed to the anthology are:
- Stephen Bentley
- Greg Alldredge
- Kelly Artieri
- Brenda Mohammed
- L. Lee Kane
- Michael Spinelli
- Sansriti Johri
- Robbie Cheadle
- Kay Castaneda

Each author introduces his or her stories and the theme that lies behind them.By the time you finish the book, you will agree the result is a mesmerizing murder mystery mash-up.
