A New Short Story Contract

I'm very happy to announce that I recently signed a contract with Sniplits for them to produce an audio version of my comedic mystery short story, "Flamingo Fatality," that first appeared in the Manhattan Mysteries anthology in 2005.

In "Flamingo Fatality," Diane, a vegetarian farm market worker in beef-eating Manhattan, Kansas, discovers the body of a dead flamingo, a former resident of nearby Sunset Zoo, while taking a hike. She uses the phone of a nosy retired police dispatcher to call the police, then becomes embroiled in solving the crime and dealing with a growing attraction for the handsome cop assigned to the case.

Sniplits professionally produces MP3 audio short stories by known and new authors, read by professional actors and voice talent. They have hundreds of short stories available for purchase on the site, in all genres, from mystery to romance, western to speculative, and more.

"Flamingo Fatality" should appear on the Sniplits website sometime in June. In the meantime, if you'd like to hear another audio short story of mine, go HERE. Sniplits has already produced two of my mainstream fiction short stories, "Biscuit Connection" and "Covered Dish Casseroles." I've been very pleased with the quality of the voice talent for both of those stories and am looking forward to listening to their production of "Flamingo Fatality."
