“Well of Rage” features Carly Redmund, a Mobile, Ala., police recruit, who’s about to mess up her first crime scene.
She’s found evidence of a murder — a high school class ring — in the bottom of a well. Her training officer, J.C. Grey, orders her to hand it over. Then he pockets it.
Carly learns that bones in the well may be those of Terence, a missing black kid from the 1970s. What she doesn’t know is that a white supremacist group is involved.
In “Another Kind of Hero,” a casket full of drugs and money is found inside the Pick’n Pay in Forsyth, Ga., putting sisters Mavis and Helen at odds. Can a DEA agent, a ghost and the sisters foil the money laundering scheme, as this small town rocks and rolls in criminal activity?
My story “Jewell’s Hell” appears in this anthology of short stories about women, edited by Elizabeth Zelvin.
“Another Kind of Hero” is first place winner in the Public Safety Writers Association unpublished-fiction category.
